How to tell if you are a Real Teacher
Real teachers grade papers in the car, during commercials, in faculty meetings, in the bathroom, and (at the end of the six weeks) have been seen grading in church.

Real teachers cheer when they hear April 1 does not fall on a school day.

Real teachers have disjointed necks from writing on boards without turning their backs on the class.

Real teachers hear the heartbeats of crisis; always have time to listen; know they teach students, not subjects; and they are absolutely non-expendable

With 29 years of teaching behind me, I enjoyed laughing at many of these, as being just way too true! Thanks for sharing this.

I'm not a teacher ... but I've worked in a school as a teacher's aide ... and my best friend at one time WAS a teacher.

I laughed at some, smiled at others and nodded my head at the rest.

Loved it!

BTW ... thanks for listing my site on your blogroll.

Yes, school-age teachers can sense gum...but preschool special ed teachers can sense a wet diaper from across the room!

Also, real teachers (of PreKs) can change 4 diapers and wash hands between each ina minute! And are well-trained in the different methods of getting little boys to aim!

Great site!
