13 Ways You Can Tell Someone is a Teacher From a Mile Away

 

There are few people in the world as particular teachers. Part of being a teacher is that the job stays with you, wherever you go. I guess you could call it a "style". You wear it around, you speak it, and you can't get it off your mind. These are the telltale signs of a teacher.

    Years ago I was working as a supply teacher, but also working in a pub of an evening/weekend. One night while working in the pub, 2 guys (much bigger than me) started fighting. I walked over, split them up and when they started arguing I shouted at one of them to sit down and be quiet, he did without hesitation. I sent the other one for a walk to calm down. When he returned I asked him what he had to say for himself, his friend was telling him ‘say you’re sorry, say you’re sorry.’ He did.

    When I try to resolve privat conflicts like I would in my primary class, e.g. when I was with my grown up siblings and we couldn’t decide which music to play and I suggested to take turns playing one’s favorite song :D. Or when I told my boyfriend to write me an apology letter ;D
    Or just on the train to work when people obviously wonder why my cell phone is covered with pony, princess and Barbie stickers (which I originally took off my face, hands and wrists). Just can’t say no when they force their most precious belongings on me :)

    Two things distinguish me as a teacher. Both times my husband pointed it out. 1) sometimes at home I apparently continue to use my teacher voice and volume. 2) when I’m out in public and there are groups of kids aimlessly milling about (mall, etc) I’ve been known to call out navigation instructions as I try to walk by (“right behind you”, “slow down”, “make some room” ).

    I yelled at some boys to slow down as they ran by… at the airport.

  • Phaedra on

    In line at the dollar store and the customer behind me notices my many packs of kitty stickers and pencil sharpeners. “Your a teacher aren’t you?… and you like cats. Nice.”

    When your husband replies to an answer yes and you automatically want to say "yes mam!’ ? ! Ha got to get those mams in!

  • HAnnah on

    I give kids misbehaving in public “the look” and my sister will tell me to stop using my teacher voice in social conversations…
