Teacher or educator

A Learning Experience

 

According to a news report, a certain private school in Washington was recently faced with a
unique problem.
A number of 12 year-old girls had begun to use lipstick and would put it on in the bathroom.

 

That was fine, but after they put on their lipstick they would press their lips to the mirror leaving
 dozens of little lip prints.
 Every night the maintenance man would remove them and the next day the girls would put
them back.

 

Finally the principal decided that something had to be done. She called all the girls to the bathroom
 and met them there with the maintenance man. She explained that all these lip prints were
causing a major problem for the custodian who had to clean the mirrors every night (you can
just imagine the yawns from the little princesses). To demonstrate how difficult it was to clean
the mirrors, she asked the maintenance man to show the girls how much effort was required.

 

He took out a long-handled squeegee, dipped it in the  toilet, and cleaned the mirror with it.

Since then, there have been no lip prints on the mirror.

 

There are teachers... And then there are educators.
