Spotting mobile phones, checking shirts are tucked in, proof-reading and collating reports, mediating a dispute over a pencil, cheerleading for low self esteem pupils, trying to (diplomatically) explain how I can be a feminist, physicist and catholic all at the same time. Success of the day - I didn't laugh at the yr12 who asked if you need ID to buy condoms.
