New strategy for directors of schools:
Hire a shy person.
Explain that "The teacher for this class is going to be late. Please get to know the students, explain that you will be assisting them in their work and you will ask them to follow directions on the worksheets."
The director walks in every day and explains that the teacher will not be in today but the director asks to see the work that students did yesterday... (external feedback from the director)
