Teachers and Homeless People

After two weeks of teaching, I've noticed three things about myself:

My hands are constantly covered in various colors of markers from making posters.

My clothes are covered in chalk.

And I mumble and make weird sounds. (We're practicing the short vowels in my phonics class (pat, top, met, cut, fit) so I practice making those specific sounds for class because making those sounds by themselves is not natural.

Basically, I walk around covered in various substances, mumbling sounds and grammar patterns under my breathe--teachers are basically homeless people except the content of the mumbling and the quality of the grime.
