Have you ever heard the expression, “Teaching is like herding cats”? Well, teaching children is way more fun than herding cats! Here is a glance at what our teachers are responsible for daily.
● The ability to rapidly count the heads of numerous moving small people is of the utmost importance.
● The ability to receive hugs from each child in the class…all at once (while also managing the feelings of the kiddo who didn’t get to hug you first).
● You must be able to laugh at jokes that you don’t understand, or you don’t find funny. Child humor can be a confusing minefield to navigate.
● You must feel comfortable telling everybody in the room that you are going to use the bathroom.
● Simultaneously be able to sing songs, help clean up toys, hand out snacks, and help a child draw on the paper (instead of the wall).
