The Substitute Teacher
Rabbi Epstein, Principal at Maimonides middle school was walking through the hallways when he came across a Mr. Chetner, a new substitute teacher, standing outside his classroom with his forehead against a locker.
Rabbi Epstein heard Mr. Chetner mutter, "How did you get yourself into this?"
Knowing that he was assigned to a difficult class, Rabbi Epstein tried to offer moral support.
"Are you okay?" Rabbi Epstein asked. "Can I help?"
Mr. Chetner lifted his head and replied, "I'll be fine as soon as I get this kid out of his locker."
