Teaching…kinda like boxing

Ding Ding! Round one is over.

Retreat to your corner better known as the teacher’s lounge.

It’s time for lunch, be swift the clock is ticking.

Sometimes you’re the champ, you’re a star, you’re in control, it’s been a knockout kind of day. Sometimes you’re the underdog, just trying to stay on your feet.

Don’t throw in the towel yet, your “team” is in your corner. They have your back, they’ll get you what you need : advice, humor, sarcasm, helpful tips, new ideas, insight, the list goes on. More importantly catch up on a few stories, personal updates, maybe a little gossip (it’s usually true).

Times Up! Savor the last bite, clean up, don’t forget to recycle, check your mailbox, catch your breath, put on your game face.

Ding Ding! Round two.
