Totally stealing this idea from Todd Seal.
Push off paperwork that I can complete in 5 minutes until right before it’s due. Walk into school with no idea what I’m going to do third period. Insist on perfect posture. Ignore work that students have turned in. Throw everything in a random pile and hope I can find it later. Follow a scripted a lesson exactly as stated even when it’s not working for the kids. Lie to a student that I’m not mad when I am. Move on without checking for understanding. Leave my e-mail client open. Save grade input and calculations for the end of the quarter. Waste a prep period reading when I have something that needs to get done. Enforce rules inconsistently. Make students ask to go sharpen their pencil when they’re doing quiet work. Yell. Skip team meetings. Put off contacting a parent just because I think it will be unpleasant. Always eat by myself in my classroom. Refuse to ask for help for fear of looking stupid. Wonder why the students didn’t do a good job at something when they haven’t practiced it enough. Only take my class to the library three times. Have the kids read quietly for too long just because they’re being quiet when we have stuff to get done. Be bothered by typical adolescent absent-mindedness. Turn in my paperwork late even when it’s all done. Keep my PLN to myself.
