In our profession (as any profession) we often speak in jargon, shorthand and code. What I would like to share are a couple of code phrases from the field of education that will signal that you are on an adult-centric campus.

This staff is like one big family…

That won’t work here…

We need to slow down…

The teachers know what to teach…

Those tests aren’t accurate…

We haven’t changed rooms in years…

We don’t observe classrooms…

We don’t need to evaluate staff annually, we know who does a good job…

What can we expect, what with the home life of our students…

The dress code is for students, I’m an adult…

I put in for a transfer, and not because of my co-workers…

What we need is a Jeans Day…

Think. Work. Achieve. Your turn…
