You Know You Are A Preschool Teacher When:

(Taken from Scholastic, with a few other additions)  ENJOY!!
  • You can hear 20 voices behind you and know exactly which one belongs to the child out of line.
  • You get a secret thrill out of laminating something.
  • You walk into a store and hear the words "It's Ms/Mr._______" and know you have been spotted.
  • You have 20 people that accidentally call you Mom/Dad at one time or another.
  • You can eat a multi-course meal in under twenty minutes.
  • You've trained yourself to go to the bathroom at two distinct times of the day: lunch and planning period.
  • You start saving other people's trash, because most likely, you can use that toilet paper tube or plastic butter tub for something in the classroom.
  • You can tell if it's a full moon without ever looking outside.
  • You believe that unspeakable evils will befall you if anyone says "Boy, the kids sure are mellow today."
  • You spend more money on school stuff than you do on your own needs.
  • You can't pass the school supply aisle without getting at least five items.
  • You find true beauty in a can of perfectly sharpened pencils.
  • You are secretly addicted to hand sanitizer.
  • You dig in your pocket for change and pull out beads, legos and a marble.
  • You announce to everyone in the room "I need to go potty" before leaving to use the bathroom.
  • You can be found in the children’s section of any bookshop.
  • You only buy your own children toys that match your teaching themes at preschool.
  • You have more picture books than other more ‘adult’ books.
  • “How sad!” is what comes out of your mouth even though you are thinking “Stop it, you little bonehead!”
