Teacher Tactic 1 :: Email Checks

One of my favorite teacher tactics is the email check.  An email check is when a teacher sends me an email from there classroom and at about the same time the message arrives in my inbox the teacher arrives in my office to see if I received it.  Here’s an example:

Teacher: IT Guy, did you get my email?

IT Guy:  No…..wait hold on……hits Send/Receive…….yes, you just sent it.   Why did you run down here?

Teacher: I wanted to see if you got it.

IT Guy: Why wouldn’t I get it?

Teacher: I wasn’t sure if I did it right.

IT Guy: What could go wrong?  All you have to push is SEND.  You’ve done it a thousand times.

Teacher: Yeah, I know

IT Guy: They why do you think this one will magically disappear

Teacher: I don’t know……..anyways did you read it?

IT Guy: Yep

Teacher: And?

IT Guy: I just responded as we were speaking………..did you get it?
