5. The overwhelming urge to giggle when reading a student's carefully written work.
|This is my favourite thing any student of mine has ever written.|
|This is the same expression I made when they showed it to me. I want to be somebody's favourite face, too.|
"Annabelle, all your classes are cancelled today"
3. The panic when, five minutes before the first class of the day:
"Annabelle, you have five extra classes today. Starting now."
2. The indignity when a non-native speaker corrects your English.
|Turns out if you respond like this once, nobody ever corrects you again.|
|Being an EFL teacher is a lot more like being Miss Chanandler Bong than you'd think.|
Have you had any experiences like these, or did I miss a typical one off the list? I have loads more of these I want to share, so let me know in the comments below!
