You Might Be a Teacher If ...Saturday, November 23
After finishing a week of student-led conferences (parent-teacher interviews), I realized that many teachers might be feeling the same way as me. I put together a little list of "success criteria" for you to reference if you need to make sure you are really a teacher.
Criteria # 1 - You might be a teacher if your PVR/TIVO has more shows on it that you could possibly watch in one or two sittings (this is only page one of many).
Criteria # 2
You might not leave your items in their proper location. Who needs a jewelry box when the kitchen counter is much more convenient?
Criteria # 3
You leave piles of marking around your house: on the breakfast counter, the kitchen table, the coffee table.
Criteria # 4
You have piles of unopened books and magazines waiting for a long weekend or holiday break to be read.
Criteria # 5
You leave your lunch box, school bag and other bags on the first surface you meet when you get home.
Criteria # 6
You take photos with your phone of things you need to purchase .... for your classroom.
Criteria # 7 - You have been guilty of using your teacher voice outside of the classroom. My husband has been known to say to me "Don't use your teacher voice on me."
