The end of the school year brings many emotions. Some include being sad to see your students leave, and others happy you don’t have to wear “real clothes” at 7am. Those last few days are full of fun activities, keep quiet activities, and “Sure, you can play that computer game until lunch time.” Sometimes you just need a minute to get those last grades in and find that paperwork; without glue sticks hurling through the air like tiny missiles. Here are 10 things you definitely don’t want to hear while sitting at your desk.
