You Know You Teach First Grade When...

- "You are a great artist!" is the complement the students give you every time you draw something and it still boosts your ego.
- You must remind yourself and the six year olds, that YOU ARE THE BOSS.
- You instantly say "Wash" anytime someone sneezes.
-  You have the urge to discipline children in stores.  (So hard to turn it off!)
-  You don't curse at home.
-You know what a kid means when he/she tells you someone said the "i" bad word or the "s" bad word.  (Idiot and stupid)
-  All you have to do is say something with enthusiasm, in a high pitched voice and the kids will get excited. 
-  Hand sanitizer is referred to as "Hanisizer."
-  You love laminating.
- When you sing happy birthday to family members, you forget and sing the "Cha Cha Cha" part.
