Well, it is no secret to my friends and family how much of a podcast junkie I am! I listen to them while I’m putting on my makeup, when I’m walking to the car, when I’m in the shower (just a little obsessed you could say!) and just about anywhere else.
One of the things I love the most about podcasts, I’ve realized is a rapid-fire Q & A. I mean, I love the deep stuff, but as a never-reformed-reality-TV-junkie, I’m really interested in the nitty gritty of people’s lives! I feel like Q & A rapid-fires give little non-edited insights into real life.
Soooooo…I’m not starting a podcast. After all, as I type this, I have no voice – laryngitis has struck! So podcasting seems like a pipe dream at the moment! But, I’m going to do a little mini-series on some questions I’d like to ask in a rapid-fire question of people I would have on my podcast…um…if I had one!
I decided to start by answering the questions myself. This is a no-overthinking zone, just imagine it as dropping into a conversation in the staff room – no editing of ideas allowed!
Question #1 is this: If I had a personal assistant in the classroom each day, the top three things I would have her do are…
Answer: Oh my gosh – a personal assistant in the classroom! BEST IDEA EVER! Here are the things I would have the assistant do every day:
- Grade papers and give me an analysis of the most common errors so I would know what to reteach the next day.
- Put away all of the stuff at the end of the day and get the stuff laid out for the next day in super tidy bins.
- Go and get a fresh lunch for me every day and have it ready at the staff room when I got there. Oh, and a cold iced tea and linen napkin. (I mean why not?)
