You Know You are an English Teacher When...


...You use full punctuation and capitalization rules in text messages.

...You cringe every time the news anchor says "At this point, no one knows where he is at."

...You use semicolons in regular, everyday writing.

...You actually worry when you use 'me' correctly in a sentence, because so many people think 'I' is always correct.

...Whenever you tell someone your profession, they immediately begin discussing their current reading list with you --- at a party, a restaurant, the doctor's office --- and assume that you have read every book known to man.

...Beginning in May, you can calculate exactly how many school days are left in the year at any given point... And, that is the full extent of your math skills.

2 weeks from today = SUMMER break!

Hang in there teachers... We're almost there!
