I will use The Force if necessary. Or the humiliation of a Star Wars plush backpack.

I might buy the Yoda Plush Backpack (light saber not included) just because wearing it to school every day would make my students crazy.

After fifteen years of teaching, I have discovered that kids don’t like it when their teacher acts like a geek or a weirdo and will often say things like, “Why can’t you just be a normal teacher?” or “You’re embarrassing us! Stop it!”

I wouldn’t normally sacrifice my dignity in this way, but there are days when I’ll take any form of revenge available to me.
