We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again – just because we are Teach Children do not mean us Is That’s why we kids are shaking our heads at this recent Reddit thread where teachers are spreading the most stupid, most insulting icebreakers they had to. Administrators, take note: keep these ideas off your list and see these tips for improving your staff meetings.

“We had to take an online course to find the language of our love” – @rohrsby
“I didn’t need to know which of my colleagues preferred personal touch to quality time or service work. It seems to be more effective in pre-marriage counseling setting. ”
