Anyone who has spent time in a classroom knows that we do so much more than just teach. Here are a few of those other jobs you can consider adding to your resume.
When the guidance counselor is booked, we step in to help deal with everyday classroom issues and concerns.
We offer them encouragement when they need it most and push them to their limits because we know they can do it.
They naturally look to us for motherly or fatherly advice. Sometimes they even call us “Mom” or “Dad!”
We always figure out how solve the trickiest of classroom problems. Missing coats, lost flash drives—they’re no match for us!
We buy dozens of new and used books for our classroom libraries in the hopes of passing on our love of reading to our students.
We encourage kids to make healthy choices at lunch and snack time, because we know how important healthy food is for fueling their minds.
We buy Band-Aids with our own money, we put our hands to hot foreheads, and we heal playground scrapes.
The “he said, she said” game is no match for us. We can get to the bottom of problem and issue a verdict in no time.
Between school potlucks, school parties, and treat days, we often spend more time finding and making the perfect recipe for a school event than we do on our own dinner at home.
Field trip fees, book fair money, library fines…we collect more money than Girl Scouts at cookie time. No wonder that math requirement in college was so important.
We’re always tidying up, wiping down, or cleaning up something.
From door decorating contests to bulletin boards, our work would hold up on any Pinterest board.

There’s always something new to fix or troubleshoot. At least we’ve finally figured out the secret to finding the quickest fix—Google.
