#19: Teacher Bathroom Breaks
It doesn’t take a lot to understand why teachers don’t leave their students unsupervised, which means they have o ignore every kick to the bladder and hold it in for weeks at a time. Trust me, I’ve been there. Working in a cubicle isn’t a lot of fun, but at least you can stand up, stretch, and head to the bathroom!
Thankfully, some schools are adding paraprofessionals that can float from classroom to classroom and ensure a teacher’s basic needs are met. I mean, it’s only a tiny step in the right direction, but it counts for something. Half the reason I became a sub was that I was always in the classroom helping out my kid’s teacher, and I wanted to legally keep an eye on them if the teacher needed a break!
