As teachers, we spend so much time at school, so deep into the role we play as educators, that oftentimes, it’s difficult to break character outside of work. Sometimes, it shows through the “teacher look” we give, and other times, it’s through the “teacher voice” we use.

According to Urban Dictionary, “teacher voice” is defined as:

“The loud volume of voice that teachers use. It’s not really a yell since that indicates fear or anger–just the loud, obnoxious voice of someone accustomed to endeavouring to speak over the crowd without sounding angry. Off-duty teachers often don’t know they are being too loud and coming off as bossy.”

Other times, it can simply be the tone of voice or terminology that teachers often use when speaking to small children.
