Teachers Can Be Superheroes Too

This year’s teacher superhero costume is sure to be a hit. A couple of years back, two school districts in Florida decided that teachers should have a little bit of fun when it comes to their Halloween outfits. They are now allowing teachers to use a superhero theme for their Halloween costumes and to give their students a chance to take part in this year’s festivities. In Tampa and Miami-Dade County, teachers can choose from a Batman Halloween costume or a Whiter Elementary School Teacher costume. Both of these costumes come with a matching pants-and-shirt combination and come in adult sizes M-L.

Some Tampa teachers have gotten a little creative and have created a PDF file of their Halloween outfit ideas so that their students can download them and use them at the school or in class the next year. These PDF files include a look at last year’s costumes, plus some new ideas that the teachers have designed for this year’s theme. Students can also print the PDF files and use them as a visual guide when designing their own costumes.

Two-year evaluation tips and a student-based poem by a renowned poet Maya Angelou can also be found in this year’s PDF book. One PDF file includes the famous poem which says, “The children of the world unite; they have no masters; the teachers of the world must lead the children.” It ends with a quote from Mark Twain, “The good lesson to be learned here today is that, if you want anything in life, you need to be willing to work for it, and you need to be proud of working for it.” The two PDF books make an excellent addition to any teacher’s portfolio or bindery.

The second set of these files includes a speech given by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. It begins with the author quoting King’s historic speech, “I have been to the mountaintop,” followed by a detailed description of what King said. Then comes the full text of the historic speech. Finally, a student can download free speech welcome teachers to sample from the same PDF book. This package comes complete with a motivational speech by Rev. Dr. Norman Vincent Peale and an outline of a motivational speech by Margaret Anderson.

Another set of resources includes a PDF book includes a bibliographic citation generator and a free grant search engine, which students can use to find federal funding for projects based on the materials contained in this year’s report. The bibliographic generator allows one to enter a term or a name into a database, and then the generator produces a list of scholarly and authoritative sources in the field. Finally, the free grant search engine produces a list of current scholarships, as well as potential scholarships, based on the specified field. Both of these sets of resources can be used by teachers to create a bibliographic citation, grant search, and bibliographic citation.

Superhero Theme

A superhero theme is a great theme for a teacher because superheroes can inspire a student’s creativity and imagination. For example, if a teacher chooses to do a chemistry project using a biology teacher costume, the student may be more likely to use their creativity to research appropriate chemical compounds. Likewise, if a teacher chooses to do a paleontology project using a dinosaur costume, the student will be inspired to perform proper research rather than fall prey to peer pressure and make poor choices.

Teachers are able to access a wide variety of costumes online. One website contains a great deal of information about the teacher’s options and how to make them look like their favorite teacher characters. There are also a large number of blogs, forums, and group pages devoted to teacher costumes. On these sites, teachers can make friends who may live close to them and meet up on occasion to practice costume games or simply talk about what ideas they have had for costumes. Teachers can even join in the online discussions that focus on teacher costumes! (modesty!).

In summary:

A teacher’s costume can motivate a student in an important way. The costume serves as both a motivational tool and a teaching tool. The costume inspires a student to become more attentive, creative, and motivated. The costume also promotes a positive image of a teacher and can help students see how much fun a teacher can be! As long as the costume does not interfere with the teacher’s duties, any teacher superhero costume is perfectly acceptable.
