Teacher Powers are powers that teachers possess that are so fantastically close to being supernatural that they deserve their own category. How did you, as a human being, manage to grade 200 essays this past weekend? How did you know that that student was about to blow up before he even walked into the room today? How did you overhear the off-task conversation in the back of the room, confer with a student about his writing in the front of the room, sign a pass for a student to go to the office, AND silently reminding another student to start working, all whilst preserving a relative level sanity?
The only answer is Teacher Powers. These posts were created to help boost our collective teacher powers and keep them channeled in the right direction, especially in the face of (what seems to be) the impossible.
