What teachers would like to ask Santa for

The excitement for Christmas is beginning to spread and it is about the time of year that all of the students in your class are thinking about what they want for Christmas and writing their lists.

All of these discussions about Christmas lists got us thinking about what our teachers would want from Santa this year and we wanted to share. So, we asked them! Here’s what was top of their Christmas lists.

  1. More pens and gluesticks (with lids) because we all know they disappear as soon as we get a new batch.

  1. More time in the day so that we can get all of the marking we have done.

  1. Coffee and tea that never gets cold so that when we get busy our hot drinks are always there waiting for us. 

  1. A smaller class size or more teaching assistants! Students can never have too much support.

  1. For all of our students to have a great Christmas!

We can’t wait for Christmas and hope that all of our school staff get everything they wish for. We can’t promise Santa will be able to deliver everything on your list but we know he’ll have the elves working as hard as they can.

Is there anything missing from this list? What would you add?

If a new role is on your Christmas list, there’s no need to wait until Christmas, submit your CV and we will get started on finding you your perfect role.
