Don’t mind me with my two coffees, a water, and a Diet Coke on my desk — a Sprite and Wheat Thins in the background — I’m super awake and ready for the day! 😆


Things I never knew . . .

Installment #7:

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
