    I feel like the kids look at me deviously in stores when they do it too, even if they don't know me. It's like they KNOW.

    Isn't that the truth! My son once had a girlfriend who talked non-stop. He was mortified when I shushed her while I was trying to watch the news on TV!

    ... who walk away with their job in their pockets (my kids last year were all on velcro'd schedules, and I always found schedule pictures still in my pockets when I got home)

    Have to go through the list of "baby names" when naming their children several times to try and avoid certain names of former students (We all know which ones.)


    Have cupboards full of kleenex and baggies from 3 years ago.


    Begin the year with 400 glue sticks and end the year with none. (I think they eat them.):confused:


    Reads more children's books than adult books from September to June.

    Have to fix boo-boos; console kids when having a bad day by listening, talking, or giving hugs; set up field trips; correct papers; be fair yet stern; be fun yet constructive; call parents; give assessments; create (and stick to) schedules; and teach each child at their individual level...all in the course of a day. And then, do it again tomorrow.:love:

    Boy is that the truth! When I pause to think about how much I do throughout the course of a day, it amazes me. All the different things to think about and do! Only a teacher could do it.

    ...can make sense of the speaking and writing of very young children (even when their parents can't)
    ...get excited about plastic caddies and organizers
    ...wear rubberbands for jewelry
    ...can do mental math with amazing speed and accuracy
    ...have their own personal fan clubs waiting at work (complete with more hugs than one can count)

    Good one. The rubber band bracelet is so catchy. I love red indent you get when you finally remember to take it off.:D

    Right! Who can feel like a celebrity when a first grader spots you in public, pointing and screaming your name!

    And who can read "inventive spelling" with no problem!

    There is a great book called 32 Third Graders and Once Class Bunny by Philip Dunn that you would all enjoy. His witty and only-teachers-can-understand stories are soooo endearing. I have read the book over and over... :) Hope you all enjoy!

    Yes, I LOVED it. It's a great one for car read-alouds, too, because it's written just like you talk. :) My bf and I had a great time with it in the car on vacation (he's in school for music ed. and LOVED the one about the recorders)

    Last year I read it during DEAR and the kids would get so tickled by my laughing outloud. I tried not to laugh, but there are some parts that ring so true..........

    Oops... I meant "one class bunny," not "once"... I guess I should doublecheck my own work, huh?

    Here is a perfect example. A little girl drew the cutest picture for my co-worker and at the bottom she wrote "A mas du pees"...only a teacher would know that when read phonetically it says "A masterpiece!"

    Another example from my life as a teacher & mom: Drive home in the pouring rain, talk on the cell phone & explain to a 10 yr. old (5th grader) how to do the story problem!
