It’s time for back to school, and as we hope for a social, happy, and academically successful year for our children, let’s take a minute to think about our children’s teachers.
Not every teacher that our children have throughout the years will be our favorite. Some we will love, some we may hate, and others we may feel indifferent toward. Of course, if your child does have a poor teacher, you should speak your mind about this professional to the principal and potentially the superintendent. Not all teachers are created equal.
However, before you’ve made your judgments — whether good or bad — about the teacher this year, consider these five things about the new teacher.

Except for it isn’t a shorter workday.
