Middle school and high school are seven years full of awkward, embarrassing moments we have all experienced. I myself have had so many of these moments, like one dreaded day in Geometry class. During a lesson, the alarm on my phone started playing, and the song was Baby by Justin Bieber. I was in complete shock, so I did not move to turn it off. The whole song played and I just sat there blushing. Here are some of the most embarrassing stories just like mine, told from the students and staff of North Penn.

The second year I was working here, it was an icy, snowy day. The path was not completely shoveled, and as I was making my way through the courtyard I slipped and turned my ankle. I crawled my way to A-16 and realized I had cut open my hand and torn the ligaments in my ankle. While I was laying there, people were banging on the windows, and it was only later that my teacher aid took one look at me and told me to go to the nurse.”

The most embarrassing moment was one of my first years here, during my prep. I was sitting at my desk and I had music playing, and I was really singing and rocking out to the song. Not until it was over did I realize the principle at the time, Mr Heinz, was standing in the door. I don’t know how long he had been standing there for, but I turned around and all he said was ‘Hmm” and then he walked out.”

Two or three years ago, I had a vocabulary quiz with sentences about the Great Gatsby on it. I did not re-read it before I gave it, and at that point in time that year, I had not yet taught that part of the novel. So, my vocab quiz was an absolute spoiler on the novel. My students were so mad that I gave away the novel through the vocab quiz one night away from when things were going to happen in Gatsby. So, that was a pretty embarrassing English teacher moment.”

I was walking through the hallway and I went into the E pod stairwell, which was super crowded. As I was going up the stairs, I was looking down and I didn’t notice there was a really big guy coming my direction. I accidently walked into him, but he walked into me harder because he was so much bigger than me, and he pushed me down the stairs. I fell down like 4 stairs [until] I caught myself on the railing.”

In middle school, I was in the cafeteria and I was sitting next to a table which just happened to be filled with the ‘popular guys.’ I stood on [the lunch table], I don’t know why I thought it was a good idea to stand on that, and I literally fell backwards on my butt. They all just looked at me.”
