A few of my fellow teachers have told me stories that they wouldn't mind me adding...stay tuned for a few funny stories from coworkers.

3s and Ms

I feel bad for already going against my title, but this was said by one of my high school soccer players and I thought it was appropriate for your viewing:

I have my practice soccer balls numbered so we don't loose any of them. At the end of every practice, we count the balls and make sure they're all accounted for. Well, on Thursday we couldn't find ball number 3. We looked over the fences and everywhere. We probably spent a good 5 minutes looking for ball number 3 with no luck. Finally, one of my soccer players walked up and said, "Coach, I can't find ball number 3, but I did find one with an 'M' on it."

The soccer team then joined in a group laugh...


This occurred today. It isn't the first time it's happened, but it's always a huge surprise when a student is so open about their...self.

Student: Mr. Harvard, can I go to the restroom? I'm on my cycle.
Mr. Harvard: Oh, gees. Yes.

A Good Start

Here are a few of my favorites from my first two years of teaching:

Middle School Soccer Player: Coach Harvard, is that a TomTom?
Coach Harvard: Yes
Middle School Soccer Player: My uncle's drug dealer has one of those.
Coach Harvard: That's just great.

Different Middle School Soccer Player: Coach, can we not practice outside today?
Coach Harvard: Why?
Different Middle School Soccer Player: It's cold and I don't want to catch amnesia.
Coach Harvard: You've gotta be kidding me.


I've created this blog to display some of the wonderful, and not so wonderful, things that leave the middle school mouth. The English language is brilliant in its complexities and the middle schoolers that I come in contact with, day in and day out, use it in a most hilarious way. I hope you enjoy these posts, and if you would like to contribute...drop me a line.
