Secrets Students Need to Know #2
Secret #2: Teachers don't hit pause when you leave the room.
One secret I love sharing with the children is one I received from Marianne Gazille, a retired elementary school teacher. She was experiencing an increase in children leaving the class to use the restroom. In her frustration she came up with this pearl and my second secret about teachers, "You know I don't hit pause when you leave the classroom. You might miss something while you're gone."
I love this quote. I use it frequently, especially when we are reviewing over a test and students insist they missed problems because I never covered the material.
