Default Re: Have you ever been embarrassed while teaching?

Well, I have been embarrassed several times. Sometimes you get silly in front of kids, teaching them with all kinds of monkey gestures, knowing that they find it fun. When observed by adults I save a lot of my silly monkey gestures. I was doing a really silly one once and didn't notice the principal looking at me after having silently sneaked into the back of the classroom and looking at me as though I had lost my mind.
He later asked the HOD of English Department if their foreign teacher(me) had some mental problems .Typical Chinese headmaster - students should just sit and listen to a boring teacher.
