students leave the room when they feel like it

Always bugs me when students leave the room without telling me. They act like they're in college at 13 years old. I'm seeing this a lot more now.

I don't remember students being able to just run...

Long term assignments are ridiculous. You're doing the same work as a lead teacher (grading, planning, meetings, etc) for a huge pay cut.

No need to feel guilty

Nah, don't feel bad. We're essentially temps who get to decide where we go.

We don't have to commit to much.

As long as you show up to your scheduled jobs on time, follow the lesson plans,...
