FAQ: Teachers’ Edition

On nearly every website, there is a little section called “F.A.Qs”- frequently asked questions. There, the business or company will outline the most common customer concerns.

Well, I have searched the world over, and my journey has been fruitless.

Nowhere are we teachers represented.

Never fear, fellow teachers: I have created the FAQs: Teachers’ Edition.

Below you will find the questions students most often ask teachers.


This is how my students talk, and to do those kiddos justice, I refuse to correct their grammar as I write this.

Plus, well, it makes for a much more interesting write up.

To help with organization, I have put the following questions into various categories, but no matter the grouping, all questions always begin with my two least favorite words:

“Mi’ Meadows…”


  2. What’s my number again?
  3. When can I make up my quiz?
    • 95% of the time, this will be in reference to a quiz from 6 months ago.
  4. Where yo’ bathroom pass?
  5. Why can’t we just chill today?
