I've Arrived

Today, a pupil alerted me to a carving that another student had made on the main door of my teaching room (he or she probably used a compass).

The legend read:

" Mr X Sucks Cock".

If a student feels the need to insult me in such a way, it means I must be doing something right and I'm really quite honoured.

Mr X has definitely arrived, but I hope the caretaker gives the door a good lick of paint by the morning because this isn't the kind of reputation I wish to foster, thank you very much.

Yeah, I knew I had become a real, live teacher when there was a rumor going around the first school in which I taught that I was a sex fiend.

Be proud (but not too proud).
