An English Teacher's Cautionary
Beware the students who sit in the center of the front row, for they shall be loquacious as they confuse Julius Caesar with Shakespeare.
Beware the students who slouch in their seats, for they shall soon be dozing.
Beware the students who sit beside the windows, for they shall stare out of them.
Beware the students who perch along the back row like birds on a branch, for they shall soon mutter among themselves, frequently tittering, though at you or at their own humor, it's difficult to say.
Beware the students who arrive late, for they will enter noisily and stand directly in front of you (blocking your view of the class) to sign the attendance sheet.
Beware the students who visibly court one another, for soon all eyes shall be on them.
Beware the students who talk a lot, for soon they shall want you to come to their office to discuss your attitude.
Beware the students who have an infallible excuse, for they shall want their grade raised.
Beware the students who MUST make up their final exam, for they shall arrive with answers in their pocket
Beware the smart students, the stupid students, the students who point, the students who can't be bothered.
Beware the students who shows up at your office door licking their lips and scratching their nails suggestively along their pants thigh. Higher and higher.
But especially beware the students who misspell their own names.
