Back to School

 
Prim teachers in pencil skirts tapping on blackboards with yardsticks, throwing stern, reproving glances over their glasses, and handing out detentions for misbehavior..... long trips down the echoing halls to the headmistress's office, trembling at the impending prospect of  her tawse and cane.... bouncy cheerleaders sashaying (?) through the corridors in short flouncy skirts....

Well, not exactly the high school I went to, but it ought to have been...

With schools once again opening their doors, I thought this would be an appropriate opportunity to promote one of the best tumblr blogs out there, devoted to schoolmistresses:

Strict Schoolmistresses, Prefects, and Babysitters

As if the title weren't enough to encourage you to visit, here's a gallery of samples:


















I don't know who the sitemaster is, but I applaud his efforts, and let's hope he keeps it going.

    1. You're welcome. I can't imagine where the guy finds it all.

  2. Teachers still make me weak in the knees. I had some great teachers and they might not have look like these ladies. I know one thing when they were unhappy with you. Make no mistake you were sore and full of shame.

    1. I did have a couple of beautiful teachers - Miss Newland in 5th grade got annoyed with the class, plunked a high stool like the one in my illo down at the front of the classroom, and shook her pointer stick, threatening to put the next misbehaver over it and promised they would get the point they'd missed before.
      Miss Ballantine in 7th grade often showed up in a tennis skirt, having run a gym class just prior.
      Brutal.

  3. Oh yes yes yes! Is there anything better than strict teachers and school uniforms?
    The photos are nice but your art is the highlight of course - I'd love to get a taste of that yardstick...

  5. A very nice and timely post. I am sure the rule is almost universal, If you get it in school, you can expect another session with the hairbush, when you get home. I sometimes wondered if some of those teachers took a bit of delight knowing most were going to be getting a second blistering with the back of mom's hairbrush.

    respectfully,

  6. Nothing surpasses a humiliating talking-to by a scold in power. Female teachers with a slap hand!
