You Know You're a First Grade Teacher When...

Babbling Abby, of The Inspired Apple, is doing a Linky Party!

You know you're a first grade teacher when:

1. You realize at the end of the day that you have had to pee since the day started.
2. You live on coffee in the morning.
3. You find great supplies and ideas for your classroom everywhere - including the grocery store and Lowes.
4. You have so many picture books that you can't remember which ones you have and where they are in your collection.
5. You are always trying to find a better way to organize or better office supply to use.
6. You can eat an entire, if not balanced, meal in less than 10 minutes.
7. You can do more things in the first 15 minutes of your day than most people do in their entire work day (really - I gave someone a rundown of the gajillion things I do in the first 15 mins. of my day when they insinuated that my job was easy, just like babysitting).
8. You have a list of names that you would never consider for your own child.
9. You are so tired when the day ends that you hit what I call Zombie Mode - you see and hear, but stare into space and comprehend nothing.
10. You have the ability to hold up an entire fleet of buses when one of you kiddos forgets their __________ (insert backpack, boots reading bag, and so on)
