You Know You're a Teacher When. . .

I saw some of these and couldn't resist sharing with all my teacher friends!
  1. You want to slap the next person who says, "Must be nice to work from 8:00 to 3:20 and have summers free."
  2. You also want to scream whenever someone says, "Teaching? That's just about learning how to write on a whiteboard right?"
  3. You can tell if it's a full moon without ever looking outside.
  4. You think caffeine should be available in intravenous form.
  5. You have perfected "the look" which turns any child to stone.
  6. You realize some names you will never name your own children, due to experiences with children who have that name!
  7. You can sense misbehavior without actually seeing it.
  8. You say things once, then repeat them, then ask if everyone understands what you are saying, before repeating again.
  9. You know that secretaries and custodians run the school.
  10. When you meet someone else who is a teacher, you have an immediate bond.
  11. You know you teach students, not subjects!
  12. Everything I just listed makes perfect sense, and you wouldn't have it any other way!
