Interesting... possible job opportunity

I wish I could say what kind of job but I'm being discreet. I would love it, it would be less money but average out to the same amount I make now (forgot to consider that I would get paid summers...

Hi. Me again.

I've actually been pretty upset about starting up tomorrow (teachers not students). Have not just been saying "oh well," have been trying to switch schools, positions, research jobs outside of...

Thank you

You all have been very kind. I'm even tearing up a bit partially because I'm tired but also because your responses are so encouraging. Wish you were in my building.

It wasn't really a promotion like I wasn't going to get more pay. but I would be full-time in one place instead of part-time in two.

My non-teacher friend didn't seem to understand

I've actually been pretty private about the fact that I've been denied two promotions within my building. I finally told a friend about it today and while he's very well meaning he started to talk to...

Thanks for understanding my frustration

I was frustrated because I got in contact with him the very next day and he said "oh well I threw that away" without even apologizing. Honestly I think even if he apologized it would have made things...

AP should have backed you up

The AP should have told the teacher that rules and procedures are important on day one. Really, they're important for the first 3 weeks of school in my opinion.

the AP also should not have wasted...

Ice cream question

Has me steamed as well. They're setting their kid up to be entitled and expect everything to be handed to them. So many people fail to realize that while that makes them happy as kids, eventually...

That sounds like a complete waste of your time. Good for you for not going to the other one.

Today was not that bad. My confidence is just low due to some decisions made by administrators.

I have to go to the school

We don't start for another two weeks or so but they do expect us to report for something today. Just dropping something off but hopefully that's it.

I really thought by now I would be at a better...

Oh exactly. I think they're not being taught to be considerate of others. They need to be taught that it's a problem.

Not being able to sit through a video

I actually think this is a problem and I don't just mean that because of laziness. Eventually they will want to go to a movie theater or a public play and they can't just talk whenever they want to...

I know it's best not to overdo them but I don't think there's harm in showing them. Whenever I have a substitute there's almost always at least one video that's tied in to curriculum. What I love is...

We need all personality types as teachers

All of our students aren't the same, so it isn't right for people to assume only a certain personality type makes a good teacher. I know myself as a student would have appreciated a soft-spoken...

I have been trying for years to transfer to a better school but nothing has worked out (yet....I hope I can say yet).

I'm enormously frustrated because I wouldn't be trying to leave if...

Heh. I was managing ok until

Someone decided to message me on Facebook and asked if I was switching schools. I know it's because they want to know how I'm doing but it was just an awful reminder and now I feel like I'm being...

I don't want to make us look bad

But I also think people should know the truth.

I personally don't like it when people ask a question and expect a certain answer.

Do you like it?

I feel like teachers get this question more than others. it's fine to ask, but Heaven forbid you give anything other than a feel-good answer. Even if a teacher loves teaching (which I do) there's so...

"what do you do in the summers?"

Many of us have had that slow summer this one is mine and I am embracing it completely. But give me some suggestions for what I can respond with other than "nothing much" although maybe that is good...
