Slice of Life #12 - Pet Peeves
Let's be really clear, I love teaching Grade 6. There are so many benefits to being a teacher. First and foremost the students. You get to meet another 120+ students each year. You get to know their likes and dislikes, you share their enthusiasm and stress. Also, you can watch them from a distance as they grow into young adults. Often, they end up being your Facebook friends and share with you snippets from their University and work life.
On the down side, the number of meetings. It's true we get planning and meeting time, but I would much rather be working with students. We have team meetings, grade level meetings, curriculum meetings and faculty meetings. It takes up so much time. So many things to do, so little time.
