I started out the day with the librarian trying to talk to me at the beginning of first period about not being able to print, even though she had a ticket out.
The one of the other teachers wanted to know which European country produces the most/best chocolate at the beginning of second period.
Both of these professional adults were doing this AFTER the bell rang. Okay, first was while.
I am really protective of my students time, especially since we lost two days last week, and the AP kids lost 2 weeks total since the start of school was moved, but the tests are on the same day.
Plus taking attendance and giving instructions during the first few minutes REALLY helps on classroom disclipine -- and right now, I have a whole room of students on task.
