Quotable Quotes?

"Education is the ability to listen to almost anything without losing your temper or your self-confidence." Robert Frost

I'm three weeks back in the classroom and life is settling back into routine. I thought I'd share a few of my favourite quotes from my students.

History lesson: When I popped out of Mammy's tummy I had a drink from her boobies"

Story time The tension was building as the children listened to the story of Jack and the Beanstalk " And the giant was chasing Jack down the beanstalk".......Child "Be the f##k!"

News time: "My mam is getting a new baby, you know those pills you take to stop having a baby, well she lost them and Daddy is quare mad"

"We grew a carrot at home. It was bigger than Daddy's shoe and bigger than his willy"

Miss are you getting a new baby?
Me "No"
Child "Well my Mammy has a big tummy and she's getting a baby"

But a four year old charmer made my day when I arrived at school this morning, wearing a dress. "Miss, you look like a princess"  He'll go far!!


  1. Your students are more fun than my students. Decidedly.

  2. I love your little ones! But how do you manage not to be tired? I would be exhausted!

  3. Haha! These are great! My mom, dad and younger sister all teach or have taught special ed. at one time. They tell stories that would make me burst out laughing in the classroom!
    Thanks for bringing a smile to my day. :)

  4. Mary, this is hilarious! Although I must admit I feel like smacking that kid who said something about the tummy, haha!

  5. Glad you're enjoying the quotes. Problem is I should have written them all down, I've forgotten so many of them. They keep me laughing for one end of the day to the next.


Thank you for stopping by. Please leave a comment and tell me what you think.
