What Does A Teacher’s Brain Look Like?

Have you ever felt that, as a teacher, your brain has special spots reserved for things that most people never even think about? Or maybe you’ve come to wonder how you ended up spending your days in a classroom in the first place? Is your leisure conversation with teacher friends dominated by discussions of students, lessons, and classroom bloopers? The fun graphic below illustrates some of the brain compartments that are unique to teacher’s brains. As we move into summer break for many teachers, do you think that some of these teacher compartments of your brain shrink over the summer to make room for other things, or are you always thinking about school and teaching? Weigh in by leaving a comment below, mentioning @Edudemic on Twitter or leaving your thoughts on our Facebook page.
