labyrinth ring

where i work

ok so this morning at yet another interminable "team" meeting, i used the word "obstreperous" to describe some of the students.  at that moment, all five pairs of eyes turned towards me as though i'd broken into greek or sumerian and, nearly as one, chimed, "hey there...words" or "this is middle school."  

there are no eyes big enough to roll largely enough.  none.  

this is where i work.
