OK so you failed a test and you don’t want to tell your Mom, but by the time you’ve made it to her she already knows. Yeah, that’s not really a perk. You got in trouble for something and every kid in your class makes it a priority to yell out your wrongdoings as your line passes your Mom in the hallway. Again, it’s not one of the perks of the “job”. But when your teacher sends you to your Mom because they can tell you don’t feel good or they send you on a mission of high importance that no one else can handle you feel super important.
Here are the reasons that being the kid of a small town teacher is the best.
1. You know all the secrets
Okay, not all the secrets, but you know where the key is to unlock the gym and you’ve seen the inside of the teacher workroom, you are totes in the know.
2. You’ve been to all the faculty events
Christmas parties, back to school picnics, end of school celebrations. You’ve been there and probably performed some sort of super awesome talent to show just how spectacular you are.
3. You are on a first name basis with every teacher
And chances are you’ve been to their wedding, wedding shower, baby shower, or all of the above.
4. You are a professional laminator and copy maker
And your bulletin boards are always on point. You’re like the Beyoncé of bulletin boards.
5. You have a great big group of people that are always glad to see you
Whether you’ve been gone for a day or a year you are always greeted by big smiles and warm wishes. You always feel welcome and glad to be home!
Thank you for all the teacher’s that made the elementary school my second home. I’m grateful for you all!
