Apparently, I have been making up my own recipes longer than I thought. Here is my contribution (keeping in mind I was in the 8th grade!):
Recipe for a Perfect Teacher
1 pinch of strictness
1/2 cup of awareness
1 tablespoon of humor
1 handful of patience
1/4 teaspoon of genius
1/2 cup of creativity
1/4 cup of organization
In a large bowl blend the patience, humor and creativity. In another bowl mix the strictness, genius, organization, and awareness. Pour the mixture into the first bowl and stir for half an hour. Bake over the weekend.
If you add too much humor, you'll get corny jokes. If you put in too much creativity, you'll have a student teacher. Too much strictness and not enough awareness will make a substitute. More than 1/4 teaspoon of genius, and you'll end up with a scientist.
To make a principal, add an extra tablespoon of strictness and pour in a cup of organization. Bake over spring vacation.
