The Shocking Truths About Teaching

They threw Mr. Martin’s desk out of the fire window. Once they lit his tie on fire when he fell asleep in his classroom after a night of driving a cab.

Mr. James was a former Marine who had seen combat in Iraq. He thought, “How hard could teaching kids be?” Three weeks into his career he was in the teachers’ lounge… crying. He quit at the end of the semester.

 The guest speaker was a cop. When he finished his lesson he laughingly said to the teacher, “I don’t know how you do this without a gun.” She said, “Somedays I’d be afraid to have a loaded gun.”

Teaching is tough, but also has its fun side. Being in a school building is much like being on an emotional and intellectual rollercoaster.

“All right then, I’ll go to hell!”

In Mark Twain’s brilliant book, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Huck was about to send a letter to Miss Watson informing her where she could find her slave, Jim. Huck stopped and thought about all the adventures he had with this runaway slave who loved him and cared for him. Could Huck turn in his friend? No, he couldn’t.

He knew that freeing Jim was a terrible sin, but he was willing to risk his soul for his friend and in one of the greatest moments in American literature, Huck rips up the letter and offers his soul up for damnation in order to save his friend. And in that moment, Huck is truly saved.

Unlike Huck, Frank Scoblete probably is going to hell.

In this amusing talk, Frank recounts his upbringing and how he always seemed to be facing the eternal pit for his thoughts and actions. Join Frank in a hilarious walk through his many adventures where he had to make moral choices, often making the wrong, but funny ones.
