Some Words on Teachers’ Pets
For many of my school years I was the teacher’s pet. I lived in a cage and kids would take it in turn to take me home for the weekends.
People think teachers’ pets are suck ups but this not true at all, well, that’s not all they are. Yes, often the teacher’s pet is a well behaved and hardworking student but it takes a lot more …
Things you need in order to be a teacher’s pet:
- Fur, Scales or Feathers
- Sense of humour
- Ability to think for yourself
- Maturity (not too much or you become a know-it-all)
- Cuteness (the more the better – no one can resist an adorable child)
Of course if you don’t have all the things listed above, don’t despair because life as the teacher’s pet is not all peachy – teachers’ pets spend their entire life seeking approval and have difficulty surviving outside the classroom because they crave the constant tests and assignments. The classroom is their natural habitat and cruelly they are thrown out after school to fend for themselves! It’s inhumane!! Many become addicted to university study until that becomes too expensive and then they are forced to become teachers themselves.
The other tricky thing is that teachers’ pets require a very particular balanced diet of certificates, awards, prizes, trophies and at least one smile a day. There are so many malnourished teacher’s pets out there – as you go about your day today, spare a thought for them.
