Ten Teacher Truths

1 Comment

1. If you think something’s up, it is.

2. When you know you’re right, stand

3. Always speak for yourself. Always.

4. I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again: join
a teacher organization.

5. Document.

6. Coffee. Daily. Or all day. Whatever
it takes.

7. Ignore gum. You’d need it too if you
were a kid in today’s classroom.

8. You know what you’re doing. Do it.

9. Poetry matters. You’d be surprised.

10. You are not a score. You are a
person. Remember that.

  1. Oh I I needed to hear these reminders today! I’ll say it again: Teaching is one of the hardest jobs I’ve ever had! No one knows until they’ve been there.
