Was that my cell phone? 10 Uh-oh Moments

It is often said that to err is human, and teachers certainly are that.  In the fast paced world of schools, it’s inevitable that mistakes will happen.  Sadly, it didn't take me long to compile this list because it was born out of twenty years of personal experience.  I do however take pride in the fact that I learned valuable lessons each time. How many of these sound familiar to you?

  • Forgetting a password
  • Following a Monday schedule after a three day weekend
  • Not previewing a chapter before reading it aloud
  • Over/under planning for a lesson
  • Forgetting to mute cell phone
  • Misplacing a stack of important papers
  • Hitting reply all
  • Double booking a parent conference
  • Sending a reminder note home after the event has already taken place
  • Walking in late to a faculty meeting
