Now that it is cold and snowy, I’m reminded of one of the many painful parts of being a teacher. My students are not prepared for the cold weather.
Most of them don’t have any snowpants. Many of my students don’t have winter boots, and while most of them do have gloves, they tend to be the cheap knit kind you get at Target, rather than warm waterproof ones that might actually keep out the cold.
I can’t go out and buy them all boots and mittens, though I’d like to. But it really hurts me to take them outside unprepared for the cold.
