This blog started as a place where I juxtaposed my love for dressing for my teacher persona and my work as a special educator. Stay tuned as I transition to an overall lifestyle blog.

A Teacher Holds Her Tongue
Something I say a lot during the course of a school day is: "I am holding my tongue." A teacher must always watch what she says. Students may have selective understanding and truly keep themselves from getting a lesson, but something they all seem to catch and catch quickly is when a teacher makes an even slightly off-color remark. Middle schoolers are especially talented that way. Therefore, I hold my tongue even in trying moments and tell the students as a I do so.
