Hi Patrons,

Students would get naked, feed their classmates dog food, or jump out of windows my first years of teaching. Instead of burning out, I wrote lessons behind the madness. After reflection, I became a better teacher and wanted to support our new teachers through comedic lessons. These are all the stories that did not make it into my book, That's Special A Survival Guide To Teaching.

Patrons.com is an ongoing kickstarting campaign. Each month I write a creative non-fiction story about my chaotic first years of teaching. Current teaching issues are discussed and teaching tips are embedded in the stories. 10% of what you pledge goes back to local schools in low income neighborhoods supporting programs that benefit teachers. Each month I give you my stories straight to your inbox, plus extra stories to my $10 patrons every year.

Being a teacher myself, I get paid diddle squat! So that I can end my part time job and focus on writing, I need your support. With more free time, I can craft my language to be entertaining. I provided a few snapshots of story I wrote below.

Professional Development or Professional Nookie? (Newsletter and Blog)

Forced to sit and not interact, this professional development lesson (or PD) was, in essence, a two hour lecture. It amazes me how PD presenters will educated teachers in ways that we would never dare teach our students. The presenters don’t give us time to turn and talk with our colleagues, do any examples, or learn by doing. Powerpoint slide, after Powerpoint slide, after Powerpoint slide and I am ready to off myself. I saw a few people exit the auditorium for an extended bathroom break. Then I saw Amelia leave. Matt looks at Amelia earnestly.

The flirtations exchanges became the hot gossip at our school. Matt tried to remain discrete about their relationship. However, he was often seen at the copying machine in the teachers lounge making work packets for Amelia’s lessons. Though they rarely displayed any physically touching in the presences of other teachers, it was clear from Matt’s blushing that there was some physical interaction after the work day.

(Skipping ahead in the story we find our two teachers in the janitor's closet)

Matt’s boner stood at full alert even though his kaki pants were zipped. Matt tries to push his weenier down, in an awkward boner tug of war, like he was dancing with Po Go Stick. That sucker was ready for action and I believe would not be ready to deflate until Amelia’s fermions left the room.

He sat on the table using his hands to cover his erection. Amelia pulled up her panties and fixed her hair. She sat next to Matt. Whether you are five years old or ninety, everyone has the same expression of their face when they know they are busted.

My principal started the guilt trip: “How dare you have sex in our school? What if this was during a school day and some children found you? What if a parent found you?

( I pose a question{s})

Each professional development experience is different, but should provide some take aways for a teacher to reproduce in their classroom. What can presenters do to make their lessons more readily available for teachers to use?

(Then I provide the feedback that was given to me from teachers in the next newsletter.)

That's it! I really enjoy writing about the crazy stories that happen in our schools and helping other teachers. Additionally, 10% of what you pledge goes back to local schools.

I will post my stories on Patreon and on my blog: That's Special Blog_Dan Henderson

What if a kid grabs their crotch pretending to be Michael Jackson in your classroom saying, "Hee Hee" instead of raising his hand. What do you do? No, seriously what do you do if traditional discipline does not work? There was no manuel for this, so I created one. A series of teachable moments. This goal will help fund my blog costs, quite my part-time job, and help give money back to local schools.
