Quote Me On That!

Every teacher has a few quirky favorite expressions that he or she uses in all kinds of situations. I recently came to the realization that I have accumulated a few of mine over the years. I use these expressions frequently in my conversations with students, colleagues and parents.

I think it's time that I made a list of these expressions and shared them with the broader community. I will let the readers decide when and where to use these quotes, but I can guarantee their effectiveness if they are handled well. I would recommend that you insert one of these quotes into the conversation at the dinner table and watch in amazement the awkward silence that ensues.

  1. Lefty loosy righty tighty
  2. Sometimes you've got to wear stretchy pants.
  3. Done is better than perfect.
  4. Once is luck, twice is coincidence and thrice is a pattern.
  5. Good talk, see you out there.
  6. Don't text and talk.
