Lunch breaks in the teaching profession are often spent supervising students or catching up on paperwork in your room.
But Janelle Cox, who is a seasoned elementary school educator based on the East Coast, today looks at five productive ideas for lunch break for those in the teaching profession.
Janelle’s piece is the centerpiece article on today, and in it she outlines a few suggestions on how you can spend your time on lunch break, including:
