Tales of a Substitute Teacher: VALENTINE HIGH

I kept thinking, "Ted."
water, please.
Perhaps my least favorite type of cookie... what they lack in taste, they make up for in looks.
I was excited to substitute teach  on Friday, February 14th because I knew that the Coral Springs High campus would be rich, not only with chocolates, but also with Valentines Day eye candy. While elementary age kids swap cards, middle and high school students raid Walgreens, CVS, and Publix for commercial sentiments such as balloons, stuffed animals, flowers, cookies, and sweets.

As far as substitute teaching went, a triple threat hampered quality work. First, the parade of hearty hoopla and flow of sugary products made for constant distraction. Second, a 75-minute evacuation due to a suspicious phone call took us (roughly 2,000 people) to the football field where we sat in the bleachers and practiced our wave on a glorious sunny day. Third, it was Friday and somehow Friday afternoons are confused with Saturdays.
