Sorry . . . I Can't Chat


So, there are four main types of meetings:

1. This is a total waste of my time.  What have I done to deserve this?

2.  I agree with what is being said.  That’s nice.

3.  This is interesting, and I'm learning some good stuff here.

There is a fourth type that is such a rare unicorn that I didn't even realize it existed.

4.  What is being said challenges how I think about myself as a professional and makes me want to grow and become a better teacher/staff member.

Slow down those chatty Cathys, and get your paperwork done with this procrastination door sign!

Today, I go to attend a meeting like that.  It was a long meeting-as in three and a half hours.  No joke. It was worth every minute though.  We had the chance to meet with Shara Bumgarner, the head of school from The Joy School in Houston.

Shara talked with us tons of different topics on how her school strives not just to support its students academically but also the staff members.  My favorite?  She told us that no matter how wonderful the premise of a school is, if teachers aren't supported, everything falls apart.   Preach it, sister.


While Shara gave us many big thoughts for today, one of my favorites was her I’ve got to get stuff done door sign.
Y'all.  I LOVE this.  When I was in the classroom, I had such a hard time shutting that door and being the meanie that turns someone away.  Plus, to be honest, I'd rather talk to any random person walking by than do the work I'm avoiding.  Then, I'm mad later when I didn't get everything done or because I had to stay crazy late to finish.

Sound familiar?

I made a couple of different versions because, why not?  I figured people might become immune to your sign, so you could mix it up.  Also, I'm in the middle of a girly girl stage and a minimal stage and can't decide which one is going to win.

You can download the girly version here and the clean version here.


Enjoy and get some stuff done!

  1. This is my life. I got better this year early on, but now I've spent the last 3 nights at school chatting WAAAAAY too long. I'm thinking that since these are adorable, I *might* be more likely to try this strategy since I want to post them haha! Thanks!
