Teachers hate meetings. Staff meetings. Content meetings. Grade level meetings. Professional learning meetings. Parent-teacher meetings. PTA meetings. Planning meetings. End of year evaluation meetings. All meetings.

If you see a teacher in a meeting, no matter how engaged they appear, no matter how much fun it looks like they are having, just know they would rather it had been an email. Even the wonky, super administrator, career climbing, angling for an office and a title kind of teachers hate meetings.
