The EMOJIS of Teaching…

In Social Media, Technology, Website on October 22, 2014 at 7:59 am

I want to thank the blogger, Love Teach, who posted the emotion of teaching. Thought it was good to share with school district staff. Yes, a blogger name Love Teach and it was why the blogger is a teacher because she loves to teach.

For centuries, teachers have used emojis as a tool for self-expression; to clarify and add flair to their written languages.

(No. Not centuries. Just checking to see if you were paying attention.)

Emojis, if you’re unfamiliar, are pictures used in texting and other electronic messages. The face emojis represent a wide, complex range of emotions, much like the range of emotions found on the yearly—sometimes even daily—teaching journey. One minute you get a visit from a dyslexic former student telling you they just got their Ivy League acceptance letter; the next you sit through a meeting that leaves you wanting to stab plastic sporks into your eyeballs.

Luckily for us, we have emojis to help us identify, process, and express our emotional situations no matter where we find ourselves on the great roller coaster of teaching. Click on the link below for emotion pictures:
