Try not to look at their face. When you talk to them look over their shoulder at a specific point. When looking at the entire class, pick a point over their heads to focus on.

Hope this helps.....

My D's afraid of them too.

HAHAHA....oh Sweetie I don't mean to laugh because I know that these phobias are very real. It's just that you do have a way with words!

I think that what Jill suggested was very good advice. Don't engage. Look anywhere you need to to find your comfort level and talk yourself down. I know easier said then done.

I wish I understood more then maybe I could offer is real advice!

Love,
Bethie

Um picture them naked!


UM maybe not, you have older students, and those HS boys don't look like they used to look, when we were in High School and I think that Coco will get upset if you become Mary Kay laterno.

SOOOOOOOOOO

Anti clown prayers?

Aren't these type of things supposed to be on your resume?

And don't they know you don't trick or treat b/c of this.

And rememebr when you saw a clown and you were in my car?

OMG i peeed

and I shouldn't of

but the Cuban vodoo man made it even funnier

Go to your car between classes. Drink whiskey.

Always keep a bottle in the car for these very occasions......

You don't flip out on "wear your clothes backwards" day, do ya?

Figgilicious!!!

They don't get clothes that aren't bib overalls and work boots. You smelled that smell this morning. Do you think people who smell that and think it's money even know that burberry is a word? (I didn't until you taught me.) DO NOT let others' lack of appreciation cramp your inimitable style.

As for the clowns, I've got a knife.
