Let’s talk school lunch. I expect some great responses. I think if the general public knew exactly how much time #teachers have for lunch, they would throw a fit if they had the same in their job.
The district I worked in, the 30 minute clock for your lunch started ticking when you walked out of your #classroom door. Now we all know, (elementary speaking) this means escorting the students to the cafeteria and helping them through the lunch line. Only after that task is complete (20 minutes later) can you comfortably walk to the teacher’s lounge to WOLF down your lunch in the remaining 10 minutes. Since more than likely, you haven’t had a break, you’re about to wet yourself as you SPRINT to the restroom. Retrieving your lunch from the microwave, you take a bite, race to make a few copies and nab the stack of endless paperwork that fills your mailbox. Scooping in a few more bites before tossing the remaining half in the trash as you exit the lounge with a smile on your face to meet your little darlings for the second half of the day. HOLD ON…..lunch monitors speak with you about the inappropriate behavior some of your students!
Does that describe a typical day for an elementary teacher’s lunch?
Why did I bring up lunch? SmartOnes is giving away a week of FREE lunches (Seven to be exact) to TEN Facebook fans.
