The Week Before School: As Told by the Housewives

The week before school starts is rough, even for a seasoned teacher (you know, the ones with embroidered cats on their jean jumpers). I present to you a peek into our world.

 The steps of the teacher inservice week as told by the Real Housewives... 

1.Getting a classroom set up.



2. The "What I did this summer" question.

I plead the 5th?


3. The pot luck lunch.

Deviled eggs, casseroles and BROWNIES... get out of my wayyyy


4. The moment you realize this is the last time without students for 9 MONTHS. 



 5. The 12th hour of a staff meeting.



 6. When "that co-worker" raises their hand to ask a question.


 7. When the sign up sheets come out. 

Someone stop me from volunteering!!!

 8. Getting your class list.

12 ADHD, 45 ESL and 3 parents already wanting me to call? 

9. Friday: 10 am. 

Is it May yet?


10. Friday: 4:05pm

YES. All of this. Although teaching college (for the first time, omg) might be a little bit different, I can totally still relate. First week survival happy hour? Yes?
