Secondly...tiny pencils. Why is it so hard for students to part with their little pencils, even when I'm offering them new, free ones?
In case you're wondering, I discreetly stole this pencil from a student...I'm terrible!
And last, sometimes I'm a Grumpy Teacher when I'm just green with envy. This door decoration from one of the first grade teachers in my school just makes me want to hang my head in shame. I still have autumn leaves stuck to the windows of my classroom door...and I didn't even put them there.
What makes you a Grumpy Teacher??
