A North Carolina woman found a bear on her vacation home porch. And at first, Debbie Tomlinson pounded on the patio door, but the uninvited guest was not fazed in the slightest. Fortunately, the homeowner is a retired teacher and was able to use her stern “teacher voice” to scare the bear away!
She says it was like speaking to one of her misbehaving students when she taught the 10th grade.
“I didn’t have to use my teacher voice very often, I had wonderful students.” But it’s coming in handy all these years later!
