Behold The Conference Crown
What do you wear when you conference with students and don’t want to be disturbed? A crown…a Conference Crown, to be exact.
As I wrote in a past post, I had used a sign to deter students from interrupting small-group conferences. But now, thanks to a discarded Halloween costume, I have a tiara! A crown! And I get to wear it every day!
Those of you who know me know that I’m not a tiara-type gal. But there’s something about this crown…when I’m feeling my dowdiest or crankiest, I put on the crown and something lifts in me a little. Maybe it’s because the students know that when I have the crown on, I’m not to be disturbed (unless you have one of the Three B’s – click here to find out what they are). Sometimes, if I’m feeling saucy and/or regal, I’ll wear it around the building, and do a princess-wave to the other classes as they file to Music or Gym. Their “geez, what a weirdo” looks are so darn cute!
Yes, life is good with a (slightly tarnished) cubic zirconia crown on your head. I highly recommend you get one for yourself.
