I believe that teachers absolutely can not stand the sight of a closed door. I’m not sure if they feel like they can go anywhere they want because they are a teacher or if it’s a genuine sickness but I have learned to enjoy the phenomenom. My favorite is when I don’t answer the knocks, a teacher busts in the door and when I ask them if they need help they say “no, I’m all set”. These instances led me to create the Lunch Time Door Game.
Points are awarded based on the reason for entry and how many knocks.

My best day was 3 entries:
The copy machine and petty IT issue were 0 knocks but the No Reason was 4 knocks!
High Score: 41 points.
