Don't Be Alarmed

As I've said before, one of my favorite parts of my job is downtime when I can just chat with the kids. Their true little personalities come out then. 

I did that today as they waited in line for ice cream sundaes after our 4th grade field day. 

So, we're in a park and a car alarm nearby starts beeping. BEEP! BEEP! BEEP!

Me: Wow. That's the worst song I've ever heard. (Wink wink)

Abby: Yeh, it sounds like a broken record. 

Me: I'm amazed you know what a broken record is, let alone what it sounds like!

Abby: Mrs. Lee, I know a LOTTA things about a LOTTA things. (Insert sassy head snap)

Me: Noted

Hi I am a pre service education major at Illinois and was wondering if you think that interaction with students outside of teaching changes the classroom dynamic and teacher-student relationship.

Not only does it change your classroom dynamic, if you always keep it positive, it's the magic key that unlocks everything. No lunch spent chatting with a kids is a wasted lunch. It's money in the bank.
