Worked for them, not the greatest. I had to pay for my orientation which was 50. They have Frontline which was AESOP. The forms are at the beginning when you get hired. Nothing is paid for except...

That my first year has been hellish as well. I am ready to quit teaching. I work so hard just to be non-renewed. I am sick from it too. There seems to be a glut of teachers on the East coast, so...

Had a great interview, and also nothing but "we are going with a different candidate". So sorry and also sickened by the unprofessionalism.

I cannot even fathom why these people think that...

No one wants to sub

Just letting you know, it is a thankless job so expect more of this. i would rather work at STARBUCKS!

Perhaps raise the pay to be responsible for 20+ kids with no benefits. Teachers staring me...

I will add one

Shame on you for sending kids that have no respect for teachers, who curse at them and throw things then run to the P to get the teacher in trouble.

They've told me that I need to have the students do more of the work and not just following along as I and a few students participate. However, I've tried different ways/formats of "we do" or having...

NJ Teacher

This is the end of the line for me with teaching. I realized that I just don't have the tolerance for the petty BS that goes on. I agree with you but it seems that "sink or swim" is the mantra. I was...

COBRA is ridiculous

Since this district is OK with screwing you, what do you have to lose? Get the procedure ASAP and don't look back. I have given my blood to many jobs and they thanked me by kicking me to the curb.

Thanks for the encouragement

The charge bothers me but what bothers me more is that the teacher went so out of her way to do this to me. No warning, nothing. The P has never said one word to me, ever.

This school is toxic,...

Not all subs are equal

Perhaps if they paid a living wage, they would get better people. I am a career changer who has subbed, and have plenty of skills but for the money they pay, I am getting out of teaching.

YES, I realized that this was a mistake after I did it. It was not my finest moment.

I didn't even realize I did it, but I will be more conscious of it from now on. I hope no one mentions it,...

I am with you

I am a new teacher, who is a second careerist. I still have a fresh outsider view. Teaching is something that I wanted to do, but at this point I doubt I will ever get a full-time job. I just...

I agree with both of you

I wish that we would stick together. We are assailed from all sides - admin, parents, the public. So what do alot of teachers do? Attack each other. Not good on so many levels.
