how do you know you are a teacher?

Jeff Foxworthy

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.
(I do love laminating!)

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.
(I just got called Mom yesterday :) )

5. You can eat a multi-course meal in under twenty-five minutes.
(and you eat lunch at 10:35 AM - practically breakfast!)

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.
(I did use paper towel tubes and toilet paper tubes last year!)

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."
(It's NOT an easy job!)

10. You believe chocolate is a food group.

11. You can tell if it's a full moon without ever looking outside.
(SOOO TRUE! Goodness gracious!)

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

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

18. You ask your friends if the left hand turn he just made was
a "good choice or a bad choice."
(I ask if that was a good choice or bad choice ALL THE TIME.)

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.
(Couldn't be more true!!!)

Ha! This is great! I'm not a teacher but I worked in the school system (as a school psychologist) and these are SO TRUE! Especially the one about meeting the parents. Aerial Ritalin: Ha!
