OK kids, I'm back. This was hands down the shortest summer of my life. However, I did get to go back to the promise land that is Minnesota, so it was extremely therapeutic. That being said, I'm back teaching again. I know, I know. This year will be slightly different folks. This year Mr. A is teaching 3rd and 4th grade. However, I am still exposed to students of all ages, so there will be gems that cross grade levels.
I do apologize for not getting this started sooner, but things have been slightly intense. To be perfectly honest, I haven't even been writing down my gems during the day like I did last year. However, I couldn't fire this thing up and not give you something, so here we go...year two is officially under way for Teachable Quotes:

Mr. A: "OK third graders, we need to make sure that we are following these expectations, otherwise our not so good choices may give us some not so good consequences."
D: "What? I don't care, you can't do anything to me."
Mr. A: "I can call your mom."
D: "Oh snap...that is good."
