What Teachers Do During Inservice (Slice 13/31)
A couple of weeks ago, my creative writing journal was "List 10 things you think teachers do when there are no students in school." Most of them got pretty creative.
The first category seemed to be "Playing on the Computer." Quite a few thought we unblocked Facebook so we could chat with each other and stalk students. And texting--we have to text each other don't we? I mean, our rooms are soooo far apart. And, of course, we must be playing with photo booth like they do and take crazy pictures of ourselves. And how about YouTube videos? Surely we must watch a lot of those.
The next category fell under "Fun and Games". As we blast "I'm Sexy and I Know It" over the speaker system, we roller blade through the halls or have races in our "rolly" chairs. And there always Dance Party while we have a wine tasting. We also take off our shoes and run through the halls and play Wii Bowling on the SmartBoards.
There are a few of us who actually do "School Work" when students are out of the building. We study the latest torture techniques, how to make our classes as boring as possible and when all is said and done, we kill a few trees in preparation for the next day.
Hmmm. Well, with inservice tomorrow, I'll have to WD40 the wheels on my chair, oil my whip for torture training and practice my bowling. I think I'll save the wine tasting for after school!
