Doing my best

and feeling like itís not enough. Iím at the point where I know some of my kids are being slighted, but itís either that or lose all sense of sanity and lose even more time with my family. Iím flat out not willing to do that again this year.

The deal with my principal telling me getting bitten, scratched, and pinched is ďpart of the job;Ē planning for six different grade levels ranging from severe and profound to mild SLD with no resources for any of them; having ZERO support from my principal; and Iím just plain tired and beaten down.

Sorry, just had to have a whine moment going into the final three week push before Christmas Break.

That's all anyone can ask you. It has to be enough because your physical and mental well-being and your family life hangs in the balance. Shame on your principal for being insensitive and unsympathetic Being physically assaulted should never be part of anyone's expected job description. If he doesn't provide resources, it becomes even harder.

I don't think the jobs of most teachers today is what anyone signed up for when we started.

Thank you for the kind words. I greatly appreciate them. My principal is acting pissy with me again, so that's just great.

That's what we are all here for. Hang in there as best you can. Winter Break is hopefully coming for you soon and you can relax and re-charge with those you love.

Your job seems like a nightmare.

Is there anything in this article that might help with the violent behavior?
