You can imagine how excited I was when I discovered that there is something called an Ambivert which is like a spectrum between introvert and extrovert. I immediately sent the word to my blogger friend Tamara from Mrs.Russell's Room because I thought she may be able to relate to it too. She sure did! We decided that we might write a blog post sharing our own feelings about how to tell if you are a Teacher Ambivert. Here are my 5 ideas. Can you see yourself in this post?
1. Teacher Ambiverts love being around people - especially little people but once the day ends, really need peace and quiet. Sometimes, we can't even drive home with music on because we crave the silence.
3. It doesn't matter if we are involved in a staff event or collaboration or going it alone in our classroom, we still get the same high results.
4. Teacher ambiverts love to talk, and talk and talk. We are the social chatterboxes in the teacher's lounge.
But we are also quite happy to sit and listen after we have told our stories.
5. At the end of the day, teacher ambiverts have a lot of energy but also can be quite exhausted. We try really hard to keep it all balanced!
Now head on over to Mrs. Russell's Room to check out her 5 Ways.
