Necessities of survival

Happy Monday! 

Here’s a few things you need to have or do to survive being a TA: 

  • Comfortable shoes and clothing
  • Water (make sure you drink throughout the day) 
  • Gum! (when you are going half the day without eating, that breathe will stink) 
  • Layers (schools are always drastic, either hot or cold. No in between. No idea before hand what it will be that day) 
  • SNACKS (all that running around will make you hungry. Keep some snacks with you to munch on)
  • To do lists are life! (even if you don’t look at it again, having a written list of everything you need to do will organize you.) 
  • Friends that are also TA’s ( to vent about teachers, students, parents etc. also useful when you are clueless and need to ask someone a question without feeling stupid.) 
  • A good attitude ( it’s your job, just do it with a smile- it’ll benefit you in the long run) 

I’m sure I’m forgetting some things, but I’ve had a long day so you’ll have to forgive me. 

The good news is: Monday is over and there’s only four days left of the school week 😉
