Five things I never knew . . . until I became a teacher:

  • brand name glue sticks are really, actually better
  • glue sticks don’t actually last that long
  • glue sticks need names on them–each kid just needs their own
  • glue sticks are better than any other glue option
  • I hate glue sticks

Five things I never knew . . . until I became a teacher:

  • spring makes the end of recess hard, really hard
  • spring fever is real
  • spring cleaning is necessary
  • spring break cannot come soon enough
  • spring break is very late in the year . . . whenever it is–it’s late in the year, trust me

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

This pictured was taken a few years ago and I still laugh every time I see it. I wanted a skeleton for a body unit, there was only one available in the entire school. I asked to borrow it and this is how it was delivered to me. I think my sentiments were perfectly captured in this picture.
