Do Now: Always walk with a sense of urgency. Carrying a lot of stuff helps, although sometimes students can even be oblivious to massive amounts of baggage. We here at the ULOT recommend conveying this urgency through facial expressions while at the same time asserting your presence with authority. It’s something we’ve learned very well during our time here in New York. Just start moving forward; eventually you’ll get there. Everyone in the way is just there, a temporary hurdle to hop. Sure, some might shove back and others might verbally protest. But you have to get ot class, you have to teach for America. And that, my friends, is the greatest sense of urgency, for the achievement gap doesn’t wait patiently in queues.
