Okay, so I love being a teacher but if a company posted this as a job description, who would apply? I have found the best way to survive is having the best behind the scenes organization possible. In a few weeks, I will post some organizational ideas for the classroom that help save some time, because every minute counts. Thanks for reading!!

  1. This post made me laugh! Ahh the joys of being a teacher, Perhaps it is a good thing this was never brought up when I was going to college to become a teacher. I might have made a different career choice.

    • Thanks Stacy…I was hoping it would get some folks laughing. The intensity of the job is why both teachers and students need some relaxing summer time. It is intense for the kids too!!
