You know you all do it…
That one thing that you’d never tell your students, non-teacher friends, or anyone!
Here’s my first teacher confession and I’m pretty sure other teachers out there have done this before:
I throw away EVERYTHING!
Once I’ve gathered the required work samples (I’ll have to share my teacher hack for that one next time!) and “WOW” work displayed in the room, I toss the rest.
BUT I wait until after dismissal or at the end of the week. If I do have to throw away their prized work during the day, I actually walk to another trash can across the school to throw it away!
I’ve only been caught once by a student who seemed so confused to how their spelling practice ended up in the trash can (oops!). I told him it must have been a mistake!
Now it’s your turn…what’s your teacher confession?
