How Teachers Feel During the Month of December

1 min


December is one of the hardest months of teaching. With Winter break approaching, the kids are off the walls and there is never enough time to finish everything you need to do. Stay calm, you’re not alone!

1. Trying to be jolly in lieu of the chaos…

2. Counting down the days, hours, and minutes until winter break…

3. Sitting in staff meetings the week before the break…

4. Trying not to get sick during flu season… and/or working through the sickness!

6. Dealing with parents who want to know what their kid will miss while they’re taking an early vacation…

7. When your job is more crowd control than actually teaching…
