How could you not want to come to work with a group like this?? Our eighth grade team decked out for our “Super Hero Day” for Homecoming 2016. This is why we love what we do and we do what we love, because we have such a tight knit group. The Batman kneeling on the left hand side, a student teacher, just part of our gang.
Climate in a school makes a difference and as the kids walked in, saw us, and either rolled their eyes or high fived us, it didn’t make a difference. We were jacked up to be there, to be part of the Homecoming celebration, and why shouldn’t we be? Part of being a middle school teacher is acting like a kid. This is just one of those day! 🙂
I’ll see if I can update this later, with the “Super 7th Grade Teachers” who did their own thing too! This is just one of those days where you smile, and play it up!

Being willing to act even more childish than the students can imagine, in order to allow them to be free to be themselves, is a HUGE part of being an excellent MS teacher. I love the observation that eye rolling and high fiving were really flip sides of the same coin.

Ha ha!! We are a bunch of children running the show, that is for certain. But dang, we do work hard to make sure the kids know we are there and we care!
