No Such Thing as Grown Up Teachers: The Herdmans Part 2 & Drug Bust by Gary Caines

Mr. Caines, my former high school teacher, has been a great inspiration in my teaching career, and looking back, most likely one of the first “Non-Grown Ups” I encountered. He is and was a truly great teacher and I learned a lot about teaching, feminism, treating people fairly and equally, and having fun-just from being his student. I am so happy to live in a word where there are more people who have been taught by him, and I know the world is a better place because of it. Oh and did I mention he’s funny-well now he has a blog and you can see for yourself. Check it out and leave him a comment he’d love to hear from you! –Tara Audibert Co-Host No Such Thing as Grown Ups


The Herdmans Part 2

Students misbehave for four reasons: attention, revenge, control or lack of control. I didn’t know this when I first started teaching. It was about mid-way through my career before this became clear (more on the four reasons later). Of course, as a principal I was often dealing with student misbehaviour. More often than not, it was regarding a situation I did not witness; ie, it was brought to my attention by a member of staff or another student. The first thing I would attempt to do was to determine under which category the behaviour fell. Until one did so, one ran the risk of ineffectively dealing with the matter. READ MORE…

Drug Bust

Each year MacDonald Consolidated organizes a trip to Quebec for its grade 8 students, and for years students were permitted to sell chocolate bars to help offset their expenses. . I wasn’t too far into my tenure as principal when I was advised that Miranda had either eaten her bars or had spent the money she collected; regardless, she was on the hook for at least the cost of the bars, $20. I explained to her that she had a period of time by which she needed to settle the bill. READ MORE…



Gary Caines is a retired teacher. During his 32 year career he taught in Newfoundland and New Brunswick and in private and public schools. He directed school musicals, coached rugby, is a recording artist, a past-master of the Masonic Lodge, and served as a volunteer ambulance driver. Oh, and something else of which he is proud, he is married with two beautiful children. In the spring of 2015 he became a grand-father.

No Such Thing as Grown Up Teachers- Teaching stories by Gary Caines “The R Word” and “Private Parts”

Mr. Caines, my former high school teacher, has been a great inspiration in my teaching career, and looking back, most likely one of the first “Non-Grown Ups” I encountered.

The R-Word

It was 1999 and I was principal of Macdonald Consolidated School (I doubt if today you would have a school named for the founder of a tobacco company). I was standing in the main foyer of the school and the K-2 children were coming in off the playground following morning recess. For many of the children it would have been the first time they saw me that day. I was smiling and greeting them when a grade1 student approached me. The conversation went like this:

“Mr Caines, Bobby said the R-word on the playground.” READ MORE…

Private Parts

One day following mid-morning recess the duty teacher brought two boys (grade 3) before me who were fighting on the playground. She left them with me as she had to get to class. I took the boys into my office and said, “Fellows, I have a busy morning ahead of me and I don’t want to spend any more time trying to figure out what happened. I am going to ask each of you to be honest and explain to me what went on. I don’t want any interrupting. Do you both agree?” They said yes.

To the first fellow I said, “Tell me what happened.”

“He choked me.” READ MORE…
