    Can you suggest any single titles that sum up the supply teaching experience? Cynics welcome.

    I'll kick off with the obvious:

    Blondie - Hanging on the Telephone

    Just love the opening with Martin Sheen playing the supply teacher on his bed waiting for a call to duty.
    And of course the helicopters with the fan in the dingy room.
    Them CS's are commanded by Colonel Kurtz of course

    Great ideas folks, very funny, please keep them coming.
    geffone: The Willard/Apocalypse Now connection had never occured to me, but your suggestion cracks me right up. The monologue is so right:
    "I'm here a week now... waiting for a mission... getting softer. Every minute I stay in this room, I get weaker, and every minute Charlie squats in the bush, he gets stronger. Each time I looked around the walls moved in a little tighter."
    The film character I often mentally reference is Winston Wolfe in 'Pulp Fiction' ie "That's thirty minutes - I'll be there in ten", then having to deal with an almighty mess when he gets there.
     
  10. That's not my name - Ting Tings
     
  11. "Help".
    "The Sound of Silence"

     
  12. "THE BURNING OF THE SCHOOL

    Mine eyes have seen the glory of the burning of the school,
    We have beaten every teacher, we have broken every rule!
    We have smashed up all the blackboards, we have thrown out all the books*
    The school is burning down.
    Glory, glory, hallelujah!
    Teacher hit me with a ruler,
    I bopped her on the bean with a rotten tangerine,
    And I won't go to school no more."
     

  13. Back- on the road again.(a 70s band -forgotten name- had lots of harmonica in it?)

    I dont like Mondays (Boomtown rats)


     
  14. I like that as well. Perhaps we should invent a collective name for our CS colleagues as 'Charlie'
    Agency called to give me a mission, but they were only offering 'Charlie Rates', the walls moved in a little tighter, Wap Wap Wap
    On my own in the staff rooom - Charlie were everywhere.

    Another one sprang to mind:

    The Trick Is To Keep Breathing - Garbage

    geffone: There's definitely some mileage in that Charlie concept ;-) At least Charlie don't surf, so they can't spoil my holidays.
     
  17. Tell me why I don't like Mondays - Boomtown Rats
