PET PEEVES OF TEACHING

  1. When kids say "it's not fair!" About things that are completely fair
    I always ask "is it not fair or do you not like it?" And if they say "I don't like it" I'm way more sympathetic and willing to talk
  2. Rude kids
    You are ten years old Gabe and I saw you eat a booger don't you come at me
  3. Kids who insist on "boys against girls"
    You're all so cute but let's not do this!!
  4. Whining
  5. When kids think I can't prove they did something if they stick 10000% to their story
    I know that kid logic. I've been there. But if you just admit to throwing that marker and apologize we can all move on here
