Tough Teacher…nope

During the first week of school I had this on my arm:


It is a temp tattoo but not a cheesy one that looks fake.  Taylor Mali sent to me after simply sending him a postage paid envelope!  So everyone thinks it is real.

Waiting for the buses Friday the following conversation occurred:

Student:  What does you tattoo say?

Me: Tough Teacher

Student: It shouldn’t say that.

Me: Why, you don’t like tattoos?

Student: No, it’s just that you aren’t tough.

Me: Well what am I?

Student: You’re kind of funny.  It should say Funny Teacher

Me: Thanks…I think.


  1. Funny you should write about this as it just happened to me yesterday too, minus the tatoo. I made a comment to my 8th graders about being tough and one of the girls called me on it. I had to laugh and agree.

  2. I love this. Might try it next year. Even after just a week and a half, I told the kids that I was going to be the mean teacher and a few laughed and said that would be impossible.
