Thoughts from a teacher – Tuesday edition

I love my job. My students are amazing and ever so complex and I work with some amazing teachers who inspire me everyday. That being said, here are some of the thoughts that have gone through my head today and I’ve only had one class. (Inspired by the #BFC630 English chat on twitter that I read through.)

Where have all my pens gone?

Where is that smell coming from?

To do list – why are you growing so quickly?

How can I best utilise my space? (Which relates to my inquiry this term.)

Where have my whiteboard markers disappeared?

Why can’t students name their work properly?

What did I just stand in?

What part of silent reading don’t you get?

You’ve known about this for a week…

You’ve had four weeks to read this short story and I’ve read it to you in class…

Why are you checking your instagram?

Just breathe.

Actually, they did really well and this is why I love teaching!

So, by the end of the first lesson this was everything the students had told me to write down. Some of it was a little off but it was their work on the board. (With a little prompting from me.)

I think they’ve actually soaked in a lot more than I’d thought. Next step is to turn these notes into a stellar essay. Which I know that they are capable of.
