You Might Be a Teacher If ...

A teacher humour blog post focusing on a list of "success criteria" for teachers to reference if they need to make sure they are a teacher from the 2 Peas and a Dog blog.

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."

  1. I always leave items in the wrong spot! The bad thing for me is that when I am at home my 2 year old twins aren't quite as adept at finding where I left them as my 2nd graders are!!!

  4. Yep! You should turn this into a linky party! I have nearly identical pictures, and I'm sure I could find even more things to link up (the stack of papers to grade, the home "stash" of supplies to take to school - just in case, the box of goodies for co-workers who do nice things to randomly thank them, the little trinkets to give out to students, and the list goes on...)

    Thanks for posting- this is so me! I'd also like to add that all my co-workers and I agree we have become addicted to reality t.v. for the "brain-break" factor!

  8. This is hilarious! I thought the jewelry thing was just me. The second I come in the house, I start taking it off.
