Would a teacher do this?

I wish I could say that my co-teacher's heart was in the right place but I am afraid it is not. I no longer believe that all of the confusion in class is an accident. Let me explain.

This is...

50% of teaching is ignoring all the bull####.

These people can literally kiss my f-ing ass because aside from being able to be in three places at the same time, everything that they are on my a$$ about is not going to get done within the time...

One day I will transfer to a different school but until then, this is my hell

I'll be honest and say I love my job and I love the kids, but my immediate supervisor is harassing me, bullying me and others and causing a great deal of distress. I am going to seek counseling for...

This job is doable, but. I subbed first, which is real experience dealing with behavior and first hand experience with seeing the paper work other teachers have.

When people try to get you in trouble.

Just smile, tell the truth and don't stoop to their level.

And never let the people who talk behind your back, twist your words, or try to get you in trouble feel as if they are getting anywhere.

Thanks for all of your comments and thoughts

Also, Haley, the thought of going to happy hour with team members DOES feel like more work and would NOT be relaxing for me. I wish to god ppl did not assume everyone was like them. That way they...

Too many social demands

In my department, some questions I have been asked are too personal, I also receive tons of unsolicited advice. <!--eyebrow-->

And it seems like other teachers accept me for who I am but those in...

I never thought I would post this!

Still subbing well into the school year, I began to give up hope.

I was going on interviews in between sub jobs.

Well, I was called about 2 minutes after I left an interview today. Checked my...

Well

I think this is meant to be. You should go with it. If you haven't taught at the public school you really don't know what the reality would be.

I hope you stick with your decision and make the...
