Last night was “Open House” at the elementary school four of my children attend. We were there for an hour and a half. In that time I came to a few conclusions. Here they are:
I’m surprised teachers don’t…
1. Quit. Every single day.
2. Slap someone. Every single day.
3. Go into the fetal position and cry for hours. Every single day.
4. Develop new twitches. Every single day.
5. Dream about having a less stressful job. Every single day.
Why am I surprised by all of this? Because of the noise.
To be honest, I think about this every time we eat lunch with one of our kids. The noise is deafening and the number of children all behaving in various shades of awful is jarring.
I’m not sure how much teachers get paid these days. Whatever it is, I don’t think it’s enough.
So, if you are a teacher who loves kids and does your best to teach and lead them….
What are you surprised that teachers don’t do? Who was your favorite teacher?
