Now That’s What I Call Flexibility!


At our school this week, one of our assistant principals asked a group of teachers: “What to do if you tell all your students to put down their pencils, but John refuses?”

One teacher immediately answered, “I say ‘I want everybody to put down their pencils except I want John to hold his. That way I get 100% compliance.”

I love it!
