Edutopia's Pop Quiz Meme

It's Meme time! In honor of American Education Week, I am posting this educational meme. Fine, so it's not an educational meme, but actually a meme about education. You say potato...I say shut the fuck up. Thank you to Cajunvegan, fellow educator and NaBloPoMo contributor.

-----------------------------------------------------------

What is your idea of a perfect teacher?
Someone who makes you want to come to school no matter how rotten you feel.

What was your most memorable school experience?
When I was picked to be a co-captain of the safety patrol in fifth grade. They had never had two co-captains before, and they had never had a girl in a captain position before. I broke the safety patrol glass ceiling! Runner up: graduating from college at the tender age of 39.

What was your favorite subject?
French. Shut up.

What was the low point of your school career?
It's a toss-up between when my perverted Geometry teacher made up a song about me that he sang to me in front of the class every single day of my freshman year - or when my perverted Humanities teacher told me that the autobiography I wrote wasn't "personal enough" because I didn't write about boys or sex.

Did you go to public or private school?
Public.

Where did you fit in your schools' social hierarchies?
I was at the top of the heap. Sadly, as popular as I was, I still couldn't get a date with a high school boy to save my life. Thank goodness for college boys.

If you could change one thing about education in America, what would it be?
That the teaching profession get the same respect - and pay - of other professions.

What should they teach that they don't teach now?
Organizational skills and time management.

What is impossible to learn in school?
Physics. No wait... that's just me.

What did you learn today?
I learned that six year olds have a difficult time counting by threes.

What did you teach?
How to count by threes.

What is in your dream lunch box?
A turkey provolone sub, potato chips, and diet root beer.

If you wrote a textbook, what would it be called?
How to do Everything My Way.

If the prom were tomorrow, whom would you take?
My current movie star boyfriend.

She's in love with Jeremy Irons in Eragon. I heard her say so.

Todd - it's always been there, now we just get to see it on the internet.

Egan - still lusting for Gerard Butler. I think it's accent. Or the abs. Or the complete and total lack of availability.

Ubie - I know you are but what am I?

I think a better question would be, what is ON your dream lunch box?

And for me, it'd come down to one of the following:

Starsky & Hutch
Charlie's Angels
Dukes of Hazzard

OMG! You had Chuck Perkins for Geometry, didn't you?

Also, did you get all power crazed as a safety monitor, � la Bobby Brady?

THAT'S your dream lunch? Hell, mine would include lobster, champagne, and creme brulee.

Dream big or go home, Scarlet. That was a loser lunch.
