10 Things All Teachers Experience On Snow Days

When you're a teacher, snow days are a blessing and a curse. As the winter season begins and you are starting to slow down, snow days are the best. When the snow days start to accumulate and you're trying to figure out when you are going to test on a story that you taught 2 weeks ago, things get tough.

1. Watching school closings all night.

We all do it. We are watching the school closing on the local news station begging for your county's name to appear. When it passes your letter, you wait patiently for it to come back through. We do it for hours, even if we don't want to admit it.

2. Putting off work because you assume another snow day is coming.

Why work too hard when there is going to be another day? Sometimes you just gotta take a day for yourself.

3. Giving students extra homework when snow is on the way.

When the students are going to be out for a few days, it's important not to fall too far behind. Sending home some classwork to get done over break is essential.

4. Drinking 4 cups of coffee, 1 meal, and 25 snacks...because you can.

What is normal eating? It's not like you want to do anything productive anyway. Eat when you're hungry, drink coffee when you can.

5. Not grading a single thing.

Treat-yo-self. Don't pick up those papers.

6. Wondering how you're going to catch up when you go back.

When a few days go by, it's hard not to start stressing about how you're going to catch up. Everyone else is in your shoes too, don't worry. Catching up to your pacing guide might be a little stressful, but you'll do it!

7. Binge watching Netflix.

What else would you be doing?

8. Watching the weather closely to see if the melted snow will refreeze overnight.

"28 degrees? Oh, it's definitely freezing! There's no way we are going to school tomorrow."

9. Wearing pajamas all day.

Wearing business casual every day is fun, but taking advantage of pajamas is vital. Don't you dare get dressed for your snow day.

10. Praying for one more day.

Just give us one more day!!!!!

Not all teachers love snow days as much as I do. But, sometimes a snow day is exactly what we need. Whether you plan and grade all day, or sleep in and watch movies, you can relate to some of these. May the snow days be ever in your favor!

The Holidays are a time for being with friends and family and celebrating the birth of Christ, but sometimes we forget to acknowledge the other religions and what they celebrate.
