Are you a teacher? Do you have a cell phone?
If you answered yes to the first question, then you likely answered yes to the second question. After all, everyone has a cell phone in this day and age. Well, if you did answer yes to both questions, then you need to keep this in mind: Having a clean phone is crucial if you are a teacher. It really is.
You see, your phone collects bacteria everywhere you go. It collects bacteria in your pocket, it collects bacteria in your bag (purse, briefcase, backpack, etc.), it collects bacteria when you go to the bathroom, it collects bacteria from being around so many people (such as students, teachers and parents) and you get the point — everywhere you go, your phone is collecting bacteria.
Heck, some people’s phones are more dirty than — wait for it — a toilet seat. That should be utterly disgusting to you — because it is. If you don’t believe that, then check out this article.
Not only is this bad for your health, but it is bad for your students’ health. Not to mention, bacteria can make you sick. If you are an elementary teacher, then this is a very bad thing, because elementary students tend to wash their hands less than college students, although that isn’t always the case and it really does depend on the person. Here’s the problem, sickness at a school is a chain reaction. If you get sick, then a student could get sick, and then another student, and then another one after that. Before you know it, the entire school is sick, and that is the last thing anyone wants.
So, once again, having a clean phone is crucial if you are a teacher.
How can you make sure your cell phone is clean? Well, you can purchase a product like CarbonKlean’s SmartKlear. Not only does this amazing product remove fingerprints and smudges from the screen, but it also kills bacteria, unlike other materials, such as your shirt or a cloth. With SmartKlear, not only are you going to have the cleanest phone in the classroom from a cosmetic standpoint, but you are also going to have the cleanest phone in the classroom from a bacteria standpoint.
Don’t infect yourself, your students, parents or fellow teachers by getting sick from your bacteria-filled cell phone. Keep it clean at all costs.
