Peachy And The Purple Pen September 27, 2012

Filed under: education,humor,life,school,teaching — peachyteachy @ 7:47 pm



There are times when one needs a Valium, a trip to Fiji, a pitcher of margaritas.  Or an independently wealthy benefactor to finance all three.  In lieu of these, sometimes, one receives, delivered by a student from another classroom, an envelope containing a purple pen.

There are times when this is enough.

Despite the presence of soul-sucking dementors in my place of employment, I am also surrounded by magical, purple pen-weilding defenders of my sanity.  For these fellow warriors, I am so grateful.

I shall also gratefully accept any independently wealthy benefactor who seeks a worthy cause. . .

  1. A purple pen is worth a thousand purple words… or something.

    47-year-old women will love it, too. It will mean getting out the cheaters, but you’re worth it!

    What is the significance of the purple pen? Is it like a chain letter? Are you expected to send one in return? Was it anonymously sent? Like from a secret admirer? Is it something you and your coworkers do to brighten up each other’s days?

    Purple pens are my absolute FAVORITE color of pen to grade essays with! It’s the perfect color: not too threatening, like red; not too girly like pink; not too much like the kids’ writing like blue. Glad I have a soul sister of color out there!
