Best of AGT: 6 Signs your Teacher Friend is Back to School!

This post was first published in 2016.  The links and freebies are all still available, which is awesome!  ALL 6 signs are still relevant.  My eye is twitching, so I will see you next week! 

The Aussie Teachers are all back to school this week.  Here are some signs that your teacher friends might need some help with the transition (or at least a little compassion) from the rest of the world. 

How to Know your Teacher Friend is Back to School!

  1. That twitch under her eye, which you haven’t seen in 6 weeks, is back!

  2. You go shopping for clothes and she drags you to the discount spot for stationery supplies!

  3. She asks you over for coffee and you end up labelling classroom items.

  4. Her freezer is full of pre-cooked meals ready to microwave at a moment’s notice.

  5. She keeps practicing her attention-getting signal on you…

    e.g. “I’m on the talking spot!”   “Give me eyes and ears everyone!”  “Hocus Pocus -- everybody focus!" 

  6. She bought 3 new pairs of comfortable shoes. 

Be nice to your teacher friends this week, everyone. They are super busy (which is like regular busy, but they’re wearing a cape under their work clothes).
