As teachers, we only get but a few minutes to use the bathroom, right? I mean even though we are adults, our potty time is limited “by the man” and there are times when, let’s be honest, I am scared that, “Ain’t no way I am going to make it til the bell.”
Matter of fact, if Depends came out with a teacher diaper, being that I am on block schedule right now, I’d seriously consider it. (You know, with some little apple designs on it – maybe a Shakespearian quote or two line like, “To pee or not to pee, that is the question.”)
I betchya they’d sell a lot more than you think they would — we are not a proud bunch.
Okay, so maybe there are more sophisticated subjects about which to deliberate? And perhaps there are more elevated matters about which we should convene? And yes, there are a taxonomies and methodologies and cognitive psychologies about which we should talk.
But when you gotta pee, you gotta pee and sometimes the most well-equipped educator on campus is simply the one with the biggest bladder.
