We know how hard you work all year long.
As much as we all love educating our unique and quirky kids, it doesn’t come without a few frustrations and challenges!
If you caught our summer edition of The 7 Min Read, you'll remember that humor is sometimes the best way to de-stress and relax. Since the holidays and winter break have sadly ended, we thought you could use some humor to carry on in your quest to inspire these great kids.
No more turkeys to baste or dinners to prepare. Good-bye to celebrating with friends and family or spending a lazy day in bed. It's back to school time and the kids aren't the only ones who need to reset their alarms and pack their bags. Yes, we know it’s probably just the parents who are most happy about this
We know vacations are heaven and you probably deserve a longer break, but it's going to be alright!
So, don't get frustrated, and don't you dare hit that snooze button…again! It's time to get up. Get yourself some breakfast, a nice cup of coffee and just see how quickly you'll feel better.
We know what you're thinking though, "as soon as I get to class everyone's going to be sleepy." Err, you could be right.
Or... maybe not. Hey, what do we expect? They've been hyped up on sugar for weeks, and it's only natural. Just give them a little time… and they'll calm down eventually.
Phew, ok, we’re calm. You can finally settle down and start your class. You might see some eager faces, with some even downright excited to give you their homework!
Of course, there's always the one or two, whose homework gets forgotten, lost in the Bermuda Triangle, or eaten by the dog, the hamster, or an imaginary friend. In their defense though, holiday homework? Seriously?!
You realize that you enjoyed your break, and why shouldn't they?
Yes, cut them some slack. You might even consider postponing the lesson for a few minutes to just talk with them about how they spent their winter break.
Sure, you might have some sleepy-heads in class, a few wall bouncers, or maybe even a few trouble-makers, but that's what keeps you coming back. It's always your students who make you love being a teacher.
So, keep up the great work you’re doing, and always remember how important it is. Inspire your students, laugh with them, and may the odds be ever in your favor!
Knowing how to deal with students can be tricky. These teachers have taken it to a higher level, all by using humor.
Got a few extra minutes to spare? Here's a video on the skill and benefits of humor.
