Found This on the Floor

district

I would never criticize teachers, the union, or our school district. But I did “find this on the floor” at work near my classroom. I don’t know who would risk their career to draw something politically divisiveĀ like this, but I wanted to post it as an example as what not to draw. šŸ™‚

Good Riddance!

When you are a teacher, much of your day depends on other people’s choices. Guidance coordinators, parents, and other teachers mustĀ place and remove students from your class as they need to, so you don’t have much choice in who your students are. Some students you can’t stand are suddenly on your roll book, while others you adore disappear without warning. Often you will celebrate when a problematic student is removed from the roster, only to be replaced by one much worse. That’s teaching, though. The only thing you can do is be a source of light for all students, so they will remember you fondly. And not shank you when you turn around.

Please Wear Clothes to School

Anyone else bothered by the stretch “pants” students are wearing? They look like tights. They do not cover anything that clothes are meant to cover. I can’t wait for this fad to end.

It’s Hard to Come Back…

We all like to stay up late and sleep in over break, so it’s hard that first week back! You’ll get back into the swing of things and so will your students…just give it time!
