Work Wives

Do you ever have those people who you work with that become more like family?

Do you have co-workers who give you advice not just about work, but about life problems?

Do you ever give advice to your co-workers about similar issues?

Can you joke, laugh, and even cry with them?

If you answered yes to all these questions, it is quite possible you either have a work wife or are a work wife to someone.

Both are true for me. Let me tell you about my work wives......

1.) Sarah*

This girl is a wonderful teacher. She truly cares about each of her kids and wants them to succeed. You will most often find me in her room laughing and joking around. She keeps the atmosphere light and we share similar views on lots of things.

How she is my work wife:
-Tells me what to do...lol :-)
-Gives me advice about everything under the Sun
-Keeps me on track
-Gives me compliments

2.) Riley*

Wow! This teacher has everything going. She is always coming up with cute projects to sell on TpT, developing some cute and MEANINGFUL lessons, and making important connections with her students.

How she is my work wife:
-Always inspires me to be better
-Gives me advice
-Helps me stay organized
-Tells me that everything will get better

3.) Paula*

Paula and I go way back. I started my career with her and look forward to many more years to come. She has been teaching for a while, but is not afraid to buy new things for her students and use them in her classroom. She is my idol and I hope that I will be just like her.

How she is my work wife:
-Shares her experience and advice
-Drives me to be better
-Always makes me laugh

Besides being a work wife to Sarah and Riley, I have two other teachers at my school that I feel I am their work wives.

Greg* and Henry* both need some pushing from me. :-) Greg* has a couple women in his work life telling him what to do (Sarah is one). I feel that I help them in tough situations and sometimes I am just a listening ear when they need advice. I hope that I help them, but who knows. :-)

I have to say that work wives are the best because they help keep you on your toes.

So, now I want to know about your work wives. How many do you have? Are you are work wife? Leave some love in the comments..... :-)
