This one goes up to 11

Lloyd, School

Remember those speakers from the auction? The ones that gave Lauren a bruise?

I was at school in the afternoon, and afternoon in the Summer is not exactly a productive time for me. Usually I make up for that by just heading home, but one recent afternoon I was feeling unproductive and it was only like 2:00pm. Luckily I had a fun little project I had been saving.

A quick trip to Ace hardware for supplies, to the school library to steal an amplifier, and a trip to the custodial storage closet for a ladder and I was in business.

The speakers went up surprisingly easy, and running the wire required only the normal amount of cussing. Now I’ve got 300 watts of sound piped through 12 speakers.

You might ask why I would need such a great sound system in a classroom. Well, I didn’t want any of our students to have to think too long or hard when anyone asked them who the rockinest teacher was. Also, it will mean that I don’t have to blast my desktop speakers when we show student’s projects to the whole class. Also, I am the rockinest teacher.

    You ARE the rockinest teacher! I’m very envious.


  2. Beth Said on:

    I want a set up like that in my office. Seriously.

    (And, you’ve always been the rockinest teacher. Seriously.)


  3. Peggy Said on:

    I can see why you are the rockinest teacher ever…even before the speakers!

    You go Lloyd!

    So now the speakers can bruise eardrums instead of spouses! Now, Mr. Shneebley, you must make most judicious media choice when you debut those bad boys for your class! Absolutely no Barry Manilow or Celine Dion, maybe Into The West from Lord of the Rings or Carry On My Wayward Son?


  5. Lauren Said on:

    Hmmmph ….. you are the rockinest teacher.
