Check Yes or No

Hi BEAUtiful Mess readers!!!!!

My name is Michelle! I'm so SO so excited to be here taking the place of our beautiful Stephanie while she is enjoying Hawaii!!!!!

I blog over at----

.....I pretty much talk about anything and everything, but here lately you'll find me talking more and more about the joys (and shockers) of pregnancy! Come on over and say hello! I'd love to hear from you!

Today I wanted to talk to y'all about passing notes. Remember when we were in middle school and passing notes was THE THING to do? Well, still IS the thing to do! You see, I teach 8th grade, and believe me when I tell you....I've SEEN IT ALL when it comes to note-passing.

Just a warning...if a few curse words are offensive to you, I apologize!!! I'm showing you the notes AS I FOUND THEM, in all their glory!!!

Let me show you...

Exhibit A:

Christmas 2010. 
Student passes me a note. It's a Christmas card. 
I'm SO EXCITED. The card looks so pretty!
The outside of my card
Then....I open it.....
Isn't that just the nicest thing you ever read?!!?! I was so so so shocked!!!!!! 
Needless to say, this child was suspended.

Exhibit B:

September 23, 2011.
Student writes an open letter letting everyone know why he's failing my English class....

Yeah...its MY fault you have As and Bs, buddy.

Exhibit C:

January, 2012
Young man passes this note to a young lady sitting next to him....

Who says romance is dead???

Not all the notes I collect are bad, though!!!!

This one was my favorite. He always called me his "angel" 
because I helped him pass all his tests!!! So sweet!

This next note I just found last week....I teach at a new school now, and you can see a HUGE difference in the way these kids think compared to the way the kids at my last school did....
I love how he said she reminded him of a cute Korean pop star!!! LOL!!!

If you are interested in seeing any more of my middle school amazing-ness,

Thank you so much for reading all about passing notes!!! And Steph, I hope you are having an AMAZING time with Beau over in Hawaii! I know you are!!! Thank you so much for having me!!!!!


  1. that really cracked me up. I had to show several people in my office. Thanks for the Thursday morning laughs!

  2. hahaha, loved reading those notes! the korean pop star comment is the best!

  3. hahahaha oh my gosh Michelle I am in shock about a couple of these. I have to know the age of the student that wrote "want to f*** at my house"!!! Actually, maybe I don't because that's never acceptable... well maybe when you're like 75 and people laugh no matter what you say : )

    I think your teacher stories are my favs.

    P.S. Hiiiii Steph!

  4. These notes are hilarious! Thanks for sharing!

  5. These are amazing!!! Oh my gosh. So funny.

  6. Ohhhh my gosh!! The first card - no words. That is unreal!! You worked in a rough school!

  7. This post just made me laugh out loud - That first card was rough !

  8. Wow, I can't believe that kid GAVE you that card, and what? Didn't think they'd get in trouble?! So glad you're at a new school now!!! Oh, and come on! That kid is blaming YOU for his bad English grade???? Yikes.

  9. Seriously, 8th graders write that bad?

  10. the best thing ever! I need to be a teacher now just because of that!

  11. OH MY GOD these are absolutely hilarious. Thanks for sharing

  12. Omg omg omg... seriously?! My mind = blown. Cannot believe kids in the 8th grade are writing things like that. I remember being in the 8th grade like it was yesterday and all we talked about in our notes was who we were planning on sitting with at lunch....cray how things have changed in just a few short years! (I'm only 20..)

  13. After reading those bad ones my jaw was on the floor!!!!!! WOW!!!

  14. I teach 4th grade in an urban setting and I have notes like Exhibit C found almost on a daily basis. It's sad. Enjoyed your post tremendously! :)

  15. OMGGGG I can't believe those letters!!!! I'D DIEEEE!!!! Michelle you're an angel. I can't believe kids these days!!!

  16. Oh my word, those first letters, WOW JUST WOW!

    But loved the last one...too cute.

  17. Oh my gosh, some of those letters! lol

    Kids are crazy these days!

  18. Omg that Christmas card! What in the hell!??! That's so mean! :(

    But the last one is adorable!

  19. Holy crap, these are crazy! I can't believe that kids these days are talking like that! I know we talked yesterday about this, but I had to come see for myself!
