You know you’re a preschool teacher when…
…it’s completely normal to wear monkey ears to work.
…you can change pull-ups like a pro.
…you can open half a dozen snacks at a time (applesauce, yogurts, bananas, etc.).
…you love outside time as much as your kids do.
…you can’t pass by the Target dollar spot without buying goodies for your kids.
…you know pretty much the exact time that each child will be picked up.
…you’re constantly pointing out shapes, colors, and numbers.
…you think Velcro shoes are one of the best inventions ever.
…you know bubbles, play-doh, and finger painting are the bees knees.
…you’re always modeling the correct way to share toys.
…you love seeing your kids actively thinking and problem solving.
At the early learning center where I work, our classes are the names of animals (i.e. blue dolphins, green frogs, dinosaurs, etc.) I’m the afternoon teacher for the brown monkeys’ class and that’s why I’m wearing monkey ears. My kids LOVED when I walked in wearing them!
