FOR THE TEACHER IN ALL OF US

Just got this ... probably old but in case you did not see it. I thought about making it a quiz but ...

HOW DO YOU KNOW YOU ARE A TEACHER?

1. You can hear 25 voices behind you and know exactly
which one belongs to the child out of line.

2. You get a secret thrill out of laminating something.

3. You walk into a store and hear the words "It's Ms/Mr. _________" and know you have been spotted.

4. You have 25 people that accidentally call you Mom/Dad at one time or another.

5. You can eat a multi-course meal in under twenty-five minutes.

6. You've trained yourself to go to the bathroom at two distinct times of the day: lunch and prep period.

7. You start saving other people's trash, because most likely, you can use that toilet paper tube or plastic butter tub for something in the classroom.

8. You believe the teachers' lounge should be equipped with a margarita machine.

9. You want to slap the next person who says "Must be nice to work 7 to 3 and have summers off."

10. You believe chocolate is a food group.

11. You can tell if it's a full moon without ever looking outside.

12. You believe that unspeakable evils will befall you if anyone says "Boy, the kids sure are mellow today."

13. You feel the urge to talk to strange children and correct their behavior when you are out in public.

14. You believe in aerial spraying of Ritalin.

15. You think caffeine should be available in intravenous form.

16. You spend more money on school stuff than you do on your own children.

17. You can't pass the school supply aisle without getting at least five items!

18. You ask your friend if the left hand turn he just made was a "good choice or a bad choice."

19. You find true beauty in a can full of perfectly sharpened pencils

20. You are secretly addicted to hand sanitizer and finally,

21. You understand instantaneously why a child behaves a certain way after meeting his or her parents.

These were funny -- but right on the money in many cases. When my son entered second grade the teacher said "If you'll believe only half of what your son comes home and tells you, I'll believe only half of what your son says about you." I imagine there's a lot of truth in that. I know I sure found that talking to the teacher often gave me a totally different story than what my son came home and told me.

Of course, 8 and 13 are my favorite. I have seen it too where it says that we would also like to have a "valium lick" in the lounge. The last one is also perfect. Thanks for the smile. Marsha

Hmm, will have to check out the drinks situation in the staff room before my next School Governers' meeting! I'll have to authorize a raid on the petty cash if it isn't up to expectations! I'm sure the staff in our school would agree with all of the sentiments!

I have always had great admiration for teachers ever since I was PTA treasurer. I spent a day at the elementary school and decided if I had to do it every day I might be in jail for terrible crimes!!!
