Does This Describe You?

I remember one day walking into a gas station during the years when I was teaching. The gas station attendant immediately asked, “Are you a teacher?” Clearly, I gave off the teacher vibe.

Whatever the reason, my appearance, attitude, and actions fairly screamed, “TEACHER!”

  1. When I take a fruit salad to family gatherings and they find that I cut the grapes in half. Yup only a prek teacher would look at the danger of choking on a grape.

  2. Whenever I print in front of someone they ask me if I’m a teacher. That nice handwriting comes from many years of practice!

  3. I have to fight the urge to explain step by step instructions to adults that are having difficulty, as if they were my students.
