John Simkin Posted November 18, 2004 Share Posted November 18, 2004 I thought it might be a good idea to post funny stories that have happened to us in the classroom. For example, I remember my first day at a new school. My first lesson was with a brand new Y7 history class. I was held up by a fellow member of staff and the class was already seated when I arrived. I strode into the classroom and immediately fell straight on my back (the floor had been heavily waxed during the holidays). As I lay on the floor I realized there was complete silence. The point was, they did not know me and were too scared to laugh. Still laying on the floor, I said: “It’s alright, you can laugh.” This they did for several minutes. I enjoyed a really good relationship with this class and I often wondered if it had anything to do with the fact that I was able to tell them I did not mind them laughing at me.
