My Background

I have been a special education teacher for 11 years.  The past 6 have been in the middle school level.  For those who aren't aware of the middle school concept, I work in a 6-8th grade building.  I am one of the most accident prone person (according to some fellow teachers).  For example some of the things I have had happen in the past 6 years:
  • I fell down a hill while raking
  • Lost my voice and sounded like Minnie Mouse during a professional meeting
  • The "Ranch Pants" incident
  • Witnessed a student doing something EXTREMELY inappropriate at school
  • Been stepped on and ended up wearing a brace for a month
  • Suffered every side effect from Prozac, including sweating through my clothes at work
Those are just some examples of my bad luck.  I may also address some of funniest things that happened to me prior to working as an educator. (Like being banned from an "adult book store" and my YMCA near arrest antics.  

I have always joked around with my students that I will someday write a book, Aren't you glad your not me.  Instead, I'll start with a blog and see where it goes from here.  I hope you enjoy.  It is always funny when it happens to someone else.


  1. Oh my goodness, the weirdest things happen to me too! I always call it Sarah's Law, because it seems like these things only happen to me!

  2. I am intrigued by EXTREMELY inappropriate. It reminds me of one of my co-workers catching a couple mid-coitus. I shudder to even imagine. I don't even know what I would do in that situation.


Your input would be greatly appreciated!!!
