Am I just too serious about school and students?
Whenever I see teachers cheering (loudly) down the halls on Friday, I cringe. I've witnessed high fives, sky jumps, twirls and smiles that never appear at any other time of the week.
Makes me sad for students whose only peace, positivity or sense of place is found in school.
And since learning doesn't (or shouldn't) only happen in school, I'm afraid that teachers who act this way send a nonproductive message about learning. I'd rather send students off with the idea that they will be missed and that I will be happy to see them again on Monday. That's the way I feel, but I rarely see this expressed by other teachers.
So, am I just too serious about school and students?
