Teachers go grocery shopping? Yes, they do. It was fun as a kid to see a teacher while we were grocery shopping with our mom. It always seemed like I was in a time warp or something; you’re walking down an aisle, turn the corner, and bam–you’re staring up at the teacher you sat in front of all day.
When I was a teacher I’d run into students and their parents pretty often. Miss W, Miss W what are you doing in the store? We shop here! It always made me laugh, especially the next day when word got around the classroom that someone had seen me in the store. It didn’t take much to keep fourth grades entertained back then.
For all the teachers, and teacher-types; thank you for taking a few minutes to chat with the excited, giggling students who are always so shocked that you actually have a life outside of the 6 hours you spend with them every day!
