Alisha over at The Bubbly Blonde is hosting a linky party for teachers to share their biggest classroom pet peeves! Of course, I absolutely love my job and can't imagine doing anything else, but I think EVERY teacher has a few pet peeves. It's just bound to happen when you're spending 5 days a week in a smallish space with 20+ rugrats all day long! So...here are my top five:
1. Tattling & not problem solving...enough said!
2. Poking me to get my attention all the while saying, "Mrs. Cooper, Mrs. Cooper, Mrs. Cooper" repeatedly in a whiny voice. It's enough to make a teacher want to change her name! Once I turned around and poked the kid back and asked him if he liked it when I did that to him to try and FINALLY make my point. He started crying...not the right kid to try that strategy with! Oops!
3. Whiny voices!
4. Stepping on my feet! Kindergartners are heavier than you would think!
5. Telling me, "I can't" when I know you can or you haven't even tried yet.
So, what are YOUR classroom pet peeves?!
