15 Teacher Luxuries You'll Find Hard to Believe Are Real

15 Teacher Luxuries You'll Find Hard to Believe Are Real
teacher luxuries cover


It's no secret that the life of a teacher is far from luxurious. We didn't choose this profession to have an abundance of free time, a leisurely schedule, long lunch breaks, or a big paycheck. We choose to teach because we know how much of a difference we make, every day. We do it for our kids. We do it for those gratifying moments of watching a student grow. But with everything that we do, the simple pleasures in life become royal luxuries. Here are a few examples...

1. Chewing your food...

    A second grader was clutching his crotch. He said, “I have a hole in my pants.”
    “Don’t show it to me!” I shrieked.
    All the boys started laughing.
    He kept pulling on the hole in his pants.
    I shouted to him, “Keep your hands off of it! You’re going to make it bigger!”
    All of the boys fell off their chairs and rolled on the floor in laughter. 😂

    Taking a sick day without having to do twice as much work as you’d have to do if you were there. And then not having to deal with it when you get back!!!
