I like to stand at the door of my classroom and greet my 8th graders with, "Wuz up my nerds?"
They act like they hate it, but I know that deep down they love it... and think I'm AWESOME!

Rockin' the Double Dream Hands

To add a bit of extra spice to our H.M.S. Spirit Week (a.k.a. dress up in crazy outfits and act like fools week) we had a school dance. Awesome. For the most part, all went well- aside from the part where the D.J. accidentally unplugged all of his equipment… twice, but I still can’t wrap my head around the dance moves these kids are pulling out. It’s enough to make you go blind. Today’s most popular move, “stand in a blob of 4-10 people, and do music-pulsing knee bends while you rub your butt on one another.”

Because our students lack common sense when it comes to what is appropriate at a school dance, I have decided to teach them the following acceptable routine:


  1. Wow... I don't have words... Whatever he's on, I want some! lol.
    In all fairness, I think if your students did this dance it would seem...well, a lot less creepy. And definitely more appropriate than the move you described above.

  2. Yikes... major creep factor... I'd have to go with this instead: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dMH0bHeiRNg
    Ugh... grinding...

  3. Why do I keep watching this? There is something seriously wrong with me.

  4. That dance was kinda painful to watch...And here in Cali tons of students grind dances (i find more so in high school than in middle school)...and one teacher in my high school once went off into a soliloquy about about all the most extremely inappropriate things people were doing at dances he's chaparoned. I personally do not partake in such disgusting dancing
