Testosterone Thursday

I teach elementary school. I don't expect to spend a lot of time with men during my workday. I don't see that as good or bad, just an observation of the realities.

Today, however, I found just the opposite to be true. By the end of the day I realized four different male teachers had been in my classroom working with students.

  1. A university student who is observing one particular child for a case study as he works towards his teaching license.
  2. A science graduate student who works with our school through an NSF fellowship.
  3. A central office resource teacher.
  4. Our technology specialist.
And the intern who has been working with us all semester was subbing in kindergarten today - his presence would have raised us to five. Astounding.
