There Are Days When You Hate Your Job and Days When You Really Hate Your Job.

Reasons why I hate my job:

We are told in the morning we have a meeting after school.

I only teach math, when I should be teaching all subjects.

The school doesn’t want to turn on the a/c.

I’m nine hours away from my fiance.

Reasons why I REALLY hate my job:

There is a bat in the hallway for 5 hours and kids want to see it.

A student rolls around on the carpet for two hours.

Two of your students fight first graders during lunch and get ISS.

Kids continue to fight each other while writing thank you letters to police officers for coming to the school to teach them about bullying.

Oy vey.

    You make me laugh. But I totally sympathize with you. One of my kids put a plum under my student at lunch which caused a ferocious fight.
