Being a Middle School Teacher

Technically I'm still an Elementary School Teacher; however, this year I am teaching 7th graders! What a difference! Here are just a few things I've learned in the short week and a half that I've been a 7th Grade English, History, and PE teacher:

  1. It's going to take a while before the girls learn how to apply makeup and don't come looking like clowns!
  2. Having the deoderant conversation on the first day of school is a must!
  3. Prep time is the most wonderful invention ever! Don't tell other teachers. They may want your job!
  4. 7th graders are much more concerned with the concept of "fair" than even kindergartners!
  5. On the first day of school, avoid the word "period." Students will giggle.

I have 1 more to add - Don't send them to their 6th grade teachers for "Time Out" or to be "Helpers"....HA HA HA! .... Love you! D
