Words Out of My Mouth

Clip to ScrapBook #4

I am not going to repeat what has already been said by other posters. I have only been teaching for 9 years but in these short years I think I have seen enough to want me to quit. In fact, I have tried to quit for some time now. But this is going to be my last year. Even though I am teaching in one of the best elementary schools in the area, where everything is great beginning with the admin and ending with moderately behaved students, the bottom line is: students do not take responsibility for their own learning. If you ask more than half of the students what they are learning that day, the most they will say, "I am learning math." The worst thing they have said was, "I do not know." Needless to say a response such as this is pretty much a nail in the coffin and bye-bye teaching career. Apathy is the disease that I am too exhausted to find cure for anymore. I think I have gained enough skills to transfer into another non-teaching career.
