Candid Teacher Admits: Storms effect my job!
Most people don’t think about a stormy night. When there is a severe storm with thunder and lightning, most adults aren’t effected by it. They may be surprised by a particularly aggressive bolt of lightning or clap of thunder, but then it passes.
As a teacher of 5 and 6 year olds, my day is largely impacted by the weather; especially if it’s stormy.
This morning, many of my students arrived at school tired and irritable due to last night’s weather. They were frightened by the storm and a large number proclaimed that they spent the night with their parents. (I’m sure their parents had a great day at work today as a result.)
I always knew the weather could determine my mood and activities for the day. However, I never thought it would have such an impact on my job.
How does the weather impact your job and day? Or, is it something you don’t give a passing thought to?
