My four favorite words when my co-teacher is out.
“Don’t tell Mrs. Mack.”
To be clear- I can handle a classroom. BUT. Co-teaching provides a different environment as a teacher. And when your Partner in Crime is not there you REALLY notice it. (at least I do!)
And then I jokingly tell the kids not to tell Mrs. Mack when I screw up or just do something differently. Now they think I’m scared of my co-teacher. But I also think it helps build a bond with them. A secret (they think) only we share.
The egregious act? We listened to a song from High School Musical 2 & 3. Instead of just the original.
Don’t tell Mrs. Mack.
