You Know You're a Teacher When...

If you haven't seen this cute little linky party over at Kindergarten Lifestyle, you need to head over there now to read up and link up!  Too fun!
Of course, as soon as I hit save I think of something else...

You know you're a teacher when you have a song for everything!  Seriously.  I could make up a song about anything.  And I often do.  Most of the time it's to the tune of the latest and greatest on the Top 40.  And I usually get made fun of for it.  But maybe one day I'll land a record deal for my superfab educational renditions of pop songs.  Doubtful, but you never know.

I'm sure we've all corrected ridiculous behavior {both from children and adults} while in public.  I'm really bad about giving my teacher look while I'm out and about.  I just can't help it.  I don't understand why people don't control their children in public.  I also don't understand why grown ups TALK during the movies.  Movie theaters are very obviously NO TALKING zones.  Methinks businesses should start posting CHAMPS charts.  They could even pay me {either in money or products} to CHAMP all interactions at their establishment.  I'd be glad to set those expectations.  In fact, I've been to a couple of malls lately that have rules posted.  For real.  Mall Rules.  I'm thinking a teacher had something to do with that. 

I guess another one would be...you know you're a teacher when you spend your Sunday afternoons switching between your Lifetime movie, Facebook, lesson plans, blogs, and email.  I'm off to do some of that multi-tasking before the week hits.  There's a chance of snow tomorrow night.  Please dear God above give me a snow day.  We've only had one this year.  That's just plain sad.  We've usually had at least 5 by now.  What's up with that?!  Send me some snow vibes, please?!

The song one is my favorite! I make up songs all the time. I often change the words to the songs my hunny is listening to so I feel like they're more relevant to what we're doing. Such as driving, shopping, or cooking. All useful songs.

I totally correct behavior in public! Also at my family parties... which gets a little awkward I guess. But if my siblings would learn to manage their children, I would not have to use my teacher voice!! :)

Marvelous Multiagers!

The teddy bear counter is me. I have a little bucket that I fill up each week. Sometimes I don't even know how things ended up in my pocket.

This is too funny! My nieces always laugh at me when I am at home and I say to them, "okay friends we need to get going" they think it is hilarious that I refer to my students as friends! I always slip and say it to them!!

So glad that, as soon as I chose to only teach adults, half of these statements were ruled out!
