Do As I Say...

It's not exactly new revelation but it struck me today that my co-fellows and I are horrible students. I am constantly having side conversations with my friends. I frequently neglect my work. What caught my attention today was when I sighed heavily after yet another person was called on before me when I felt I'd been raising my hand forever. This is behavior that I frown upon in my classroom and try to discourage. I often get annoyed when the same students will sigh loudly or slam their hands down in frustration on their desk. Now I've realized I'm just as rude and impatient. I wonder if I can turn this realization into something useful or if people are just bound to be frustrated if they don't get called on when they want to share.
