Five things I never knew . . . until I became a teacher:
- the importance of portable food — bananas, apples, granola bars, etc.
- the importance of eating quickly
- the importance of snacking throughout the day
- the importance of a food stash in the classroom — a candy drawer, a case of water, a box of granola bars, etc.
- the critical need for calories in order to stay energized, on your feet, and animated for students each and every day
