10 Problems Every Type A Teacher Will Understand



Okay. So I'm very Type-A. So when my good friend Emily from Education to the Core approached me with an idea for writing a humorous post about my quirks, I jumped at the opportunity! Be sure to check out her post 10 Problems Every Type B Teacher Will Understand on what it's like to be a Type-B teacher, and enjoy reading! 

1. Your day begins the minute your feet hit the pavement in the parking lot.

Monday Morning got me like...

2. Every. Minute. Counts.

Teaching a lesson, drafting an email, planning for next week, and making a grocery list.

3. Your perfectionism tends to get in the way, especially when trying to get something done during prep time. 

Prep time maximizing.

4. You cry at staff meetings for one of two reasons. Either you're genuinely touched by the motivational YouTube video your administrator just played, or you're just plain frustrated that your To-Do List is NEVER shrinking. 

Ted Talk gets me every time.


5. You'd rather run the committee meeting than let your Type B colleague do it. 

It's just painful to watch.


6. You hate it when teachers walk into your classroom to talk to you during your prep time. But they'll never know that.

Come right IN!


7. You will NEVER let someone cut you in line in the copy room, especially if they're copying something at the last minute.

Oh no you didn't. 


8.  You care about your co-workers, but you don't necessarily have time to talk about their personal lives.

No time to listen to your problems


9. You've perfected eating on the run. In fact, you enjoy multitasking.


10. Perfectionism is just plain exhausting. 

A+ Teacher.  

How many of you are Type A teachers? I'd love to hear what you have to say. Not a Type A? Then this post by my friend Emily from Education to the Core is for you!

    1. The effectiveness of IEEE Project Domains depends very much on the situation in which they are applied. In order to further improve IEEE Final Year Project Domains practices we need to explicitly describe and utilise our knowledge about software domains of software engineering Final Year Project Domains for CSE technologies. This paper suggests a modelling formalism for supporting systematic reuse of software engineering technologies during planning of software projects and improvement programmes in Final Year Project Centers in Chennai.

      Software management seeks for decision support to identify technologies like JavaScript that meet best the goals and characteristics of a software project or improvement programme. JavaScript Training in Chennai Accessible experiences and repositories that effectively guide that technology selection are still lacking.

      Aim of technology domain analysis is to describe the class of context situations (e.g., kinds of JavaScript software projects) in which a software engineering technology JavaScript Training in Chennai can be applied successfully

  11. Me. Me. Me. The only thing that I have from the Type B list is that coworkers like me (probably because I get things done efficiently).

  17. This is funny but, I see it every day. As a Type B, I get SI MUCH done by delegating & giving up control of projects and over perfection. Since I breed relationships first, I always have the people/students I talk to first thing in morning & on break, etc. to help me get things done.

  18. "SO" much, not "SI" much. A bit Type A! Lol.

  19. I must be a Type C person. I'm easy going, use my systems, and use humor like a Type B person. But I hit the road running full blast and multitask like a Type A person. I've enjoyed reading both articles!! :)

  29. Wow, as a type A teacher, I take pride in completing things way ahead of time. Report cards, letters home, newsletters, and phone calls. What would bother me is, at times I get dumped on? I don't mind, but you better work with me when I expect some special treatment for me class. I also will do my own repairs in the classroom. With some people (only a few, because I tend to be helpful) they get shocked that I'm a dude. That part is very funny.
