10 Signs You're a Creative Teacher

You’re a creative teacher!   

You live the educational Vida Loca—right? 

1)    You work crazy-long hours.

2)    Then you dream about teaching—or about dancing across your classroom tables to blasting music, or weird field trips, or an out-of-control class—followed, of course, by a surprise observation lesson.  You know you do!  Even if you don’t recall.

3)    You wake up in the middle of the night with brilliant ideas for differentiating your lessons.  You scribble down your ideas in the dark so every student will say, Wow!  That was amazing!

4)    You wade for hours through Pinterest, re-pinning gorgeous class d├ęcor and Earth-Day themed cupcakes.  You can tick off two dozen fb sites that are brimming with addictive teacher fun.

5)    You’re in forums with teachers from around the world—from “fly-in-only” Alaska to the Bahamas.  And a hidden corner of your brain wonders why you’re not teaching in the Bahamas. 

6)    You recycle old crafts, many times over.

7)    You carry two—or more—large tote bags, brimming with recycled, old crafts.

8)    You integrate academics, art and technology as easily as you breathe.

9)    You teach the whole child—mind, body, sprit, internet avatar, Kirlian aura, and future genius of an esoteric niche you clearly see.

10) You wear your creativity on your sleeve—and you have nothing like a poker face.  No---don’t even try.

    If you read this post you get a golden key...

Wear it proudly and make it look good. 
Do it for the home team--hey, that's us!
