I know it's not halloween, but.....

My kids have been off the chain crazy this week. They have been running around like crazy people for the last few days. So yesterday i informed them i would not be at school tomorrow.... Viola Swamp would be coming in my place. Viola Swamp is a literary character that is known to children as the meanest substiute in all the world. You would have thought I had cussed at them, because they looked at me with mouths wide open. This morning i showed up in a full witch outfit and have been acting very STRICT with them. They have not spoken a word in 2 hours. HA HA HA

Happy Halloween

****For those of you who do not know who viola swamp is. She is a character from the book :Miss Nelson is Missing

I also have a child in tears any time i look at her. It is so funny.... I am definitley going to have to call her mom today and let her know what is going on! I don't want her to get the wrong idea.


  1. OH MY GOSH! That is the greatest thing i have ever heard

  2. That is absolutely hilarious! I only wish high school kids would go for it... oh well! Good thinking!

  3. I showed your picture to Lucy and her eyes got HUGE!
    I wish I'd had a teacher like you!!
    Your kids are so lucky, and it's genius that Viola Swamp came to "set them straight."

  4. INCREDIBLE!!!! You are so awesome and I was laughing so hard at the fact that you made a little girl cry!!!!! bahahaha

  5. This is hilarious! I totally remember Viola Swamp. Amazing that you actually did that. Love it.

  6. Mary Cox!
    I love that you did that! My 7th grade english teacher did that same exact thing and I will never forget it! Those kids are so lucky to have you!
