It is the time of year teachers need to put on their hardhats, tie yellow caution tape across their doors, and lay out orange cones in the halls.  They will need to stand guard at the garbage cans, handing back papers that forgot where the ‘finished’ work basket is.

This week is Riverview Elementary Teacher Appreciation Week.   I truly appreciate our teachers!

Our teachers take slivers out of fingers and bad sports out of kick ball.  They know when a child has gum in his mouth even when he is not chewing.  They have sung “Happy Birthday” 657 times.

They hand over scissors with the handles up.  They can listen to one child talk about his birthday party and another talk about her sleepover and another talk about getting stitches last night-all at the same time.

“Ask not what your secretary can do for you, but what you can do for your secretary!”

It’s funny how principals think they are in charge, but everyone knows that the people who really run a school are the secretaries.  If you have questions, ask the secretary.  If you lose something, see the secretary.  If the copier is jammed, get the secretary.  If a child throws up, send her to the secretary.

So much has changed since I was a kid.  When I was the students’ age, we turned the dial on phones, found books in the card catalog, waited a whole year to see The Sound of Music on TV, unfolded car maps to find directions, and painted typing mistakes with Liquid Paper.

We dropped the needle on the spinning record and hoped we’d hit the beginning of the song on the very first try, waited for the cassette to beep before turning the knob on the filmstrip projector, and changed the due date in the librarian’s stamp when she wasn’t looking.

There are certain things that a teacher must never do:  Never pour Plaster of Paris down the sink.  Never stand on a bathroom scale when teaching your students about pounds and ounces.  Never throw a wilted flower away in front of the child who gave it to you no matter how droopy it is.  And never forget to wear green on St. Patrick’s Day.
