After 32 years in the classroom this is my first September retired. Cannot express the relief finally having a life again that isn’t dominated by ignorant, rude, aggressive parents and their equally dysfunctional children. Or administrators who think I am their indentured servant. I wish I had found life again when my own children were still young.

I’ve always known people were rude (I worked retail in college), but good lord, I can’t believe the rudeness of kids these days. If I had talked to ANYONE the way these kids talk to me and my co-workers, I’d be dead meat. They also treat my things with complete disregard, and are destructive forces of nature. What are parents actually doing with these kids when they get home?

Administration decides that vandalism isn’t something to write up a student for since it’ll hurt the school climate survey…I think my students and parents should run the class from now on, thank you.

I was greeting kids in the hallway on the first day of school and when I came in to give my monologue two of the kids were already screaming at each other. Just my luck!

I’m a resource teacher that sees kids for about 45 minutes per day, per subject. Typically the most I have a student in my room is 90 minutes a day. This year I have two that are with me for nearly 4 hours!!! After accounting for recess, lunch and specials I have just over 5 hours of instructional time and these two are there for nearly all of it. One spends most of the day screaming and needs to be removed. The other literally needs to be carried out by the counselors some days. These kids are seriously making me question my career choice!!
