    not all of this pertains to teaching in a center, but i still like it:



    You Know You Are A Teacher If....

    1. You can hear 25 voices behind you and know exactly which one belongs to the child out of line.
    2. You get a secret thrill out of laminating something.
    3. You walk into a store and hear the words 'its Ms/Mr. _________' and know you have been spotted.
    4. You have 25 people that accidentally call you Mom/Dad at one time or another.
    5. You can eat a multi-course meal in under twenty-five minutes.
    6. You've trained yourself to go to the bathroom at two distinct times of the day: prep and after school.
    7. You start saving other people's trash, because most likely, you can use that toilet paper tube or plastic butter tub for something in the classroom.
    8. You believe the teachers' lounge should be equipped with a margarita machine.
    9. You want to slap the next person who says 'Must be nice to work 7 to 3 and have summers off.'
    10. You believe chocolate is a food group.
    11. You can tell if it's a full moon without ever looking outside.
    12. You believe that unspeakable evils will befall you if anyone says, 'Boy, the kids sure are mellow today.'
    13. You feel the urge to talk to strange children and correct their behavior when you are out in public.
    14. You believe in aerial spraying of Ritalin.
    15. You think caffeine should be available in intravenous form.
    16. You spend more money on school stuff than you do on your own children.
    17. You can't pass the school supply aisle without getting at least five items!
    18. You find true beauty in a can full of perfectly sharpened pencils.
    19. You are secretly addicted to hand sanitizer.
    and finally....
    20. You understand instantaneously why a child behaves a certain way after meeting his or her parents.

    It's all so, so true. I should be embarrassed at how much I love to laminate. It makes everything look nicer. :) And I DO know exactly who's out of line/yelling/off their cot/calling my name even when my back is turned. I also have an addiction to buying things for my classroom.
