“Found out today that I will be involuntarily moved from my self-contained special ed program to an unfilled middle school resource room position at a different school on the other side of the district because our admin overstaffed our program and the extra teacher they hired can’t be moved as a “new” teacher in their second year. F this.”
“It amazes how so many schools in America have this concept of “social politics” taking over and running their schools. I can’t do this because so and so is tight with so and so and if I say this or do that so and so will slander me to the department chair or God knows who else and then have it all come back to me. I really wish all this would stop.”
“I’ve come to the conclusion that when I tell folks I’m a teacher, their reaction is as if I’ve told them I work with people without water in underdeveloped countries. It’s a mixture of respect and pity. As if they think I’m pursuing some sort of false martyrdom. as I saw someone else post somewhere, I love teaching, but I don’t like being a teacher right now.”
