Pwnd

Last night I was totally pwnd by the 5th and 6th grade Thrive class. Never in my life have I had a group of kids destroy me like that. Granted, they weren't all bad the entire time. Some of the kids were even good the entire time. The problem is there were 10 of them and 2 or 3 of them were not only bad they were influential. There's one thing that I'm 100% certain about, that will never happen again. Mothers will be called and kids will be asked not to come back the next week if they ever act like that again. Up to this week the kids had been relativity well.

On the positive side I don't think they will ever forget my visual aid for when we talked about the helmet of salvation. Think military Kevlar helmet and a large knife. And if that sounds dangerous to you, your wrong. It's not. It just looks dangerous which is the whole point of wearing a helmet. Next time we are going to talk about the breastplate of righteousness. I'm bringing a military flak jacket. But don't worry, even if I get the urge, I will not be shooting any of the children. Next time they will be well behaved, I'm sure of it.

If one of my children act the way I heard some of them acted last night, you have my permission to do whatever is necessary. And then they get the wrath of me and their father and you can be 100% certain they will never act like that again.

Thank you very much. Jonathan was great so no wrath is required for him. The whole night took me a bit by surprise. I actually had nightmares about it that night. Never again though.

Oh man, prayers are with you. And peace to the rabble rousers.

You are such a good teacher Dan. Those punks don't know how lucky they are to have you.
