It’s A Mystery

“I like this school. It is always a mystery.” These words are never more true than in a school setting. Each day is a new beginning, a new chance to get more knowledge than you had the day before. Teachers never know what they are walking into on a daily basis. We all know that even though we can have the best plans, many times we are distracted by other things that come our way throughout the day. For example, the science assembly taking a little longer than expected or not starting exactly on time. Or the fire drill that wasn’t really a drill on the coldest day of the year so far. Or students having a melt down in class because something happened the night before.

Some days start off just the way you planned and then BAM! You get hit with something that knocks you back. You have to expect the unexpected everyday. Because after all, it is a mystery. However, I like to think it is one of the best!

  1. I love this post, and it’s so true!! Everyday is completely different, we need to expect the unexpected and know that any moment our “plan” can change and we need to just be flexible and roll with it! I agree the mystery is one of the Best parts of our job! Keeps us on our toes.

  2. It is so true! Sometimes it’s a good mystery, like the unexpected insights of your students. Sometimes it’s one you could do without, like those unexpected fire alarms — we had one, too, this year, on a cold morning.

  3. I think this is one of the things I love most about teaching. Every day is different. While there are routines and structure, it’s quite different from any other job I’ve ever had.
