A couple weeks ago one of my students gave me a medal. When another student asked why I had it I insisted I was the number 1 substitute. This student insisted that I wasn’t because I didn’t do magic tricks… but I don’t see Mr. Magician with a #1 medal in his hands (for the record I left the medal behind… just in case the following day the student was full of regrets about giving it to me and wanted it back). Until I hear of any other substitute teachers being handed #1 medals I'm going to assume I still hold the top place. Huzzah!
