All my colleagues are leaving. This district is a joke, and we are not treated as individuals. It makes me sad that they’re leaving for better opportunities, and I’m still here. 😞 I’m praying that God has a better school for me. Can I really make it to June?

Me: because you’ve proven time and time again that you can’t be trusted.

This is second year teaching, but I’m at a new school. I have been doing my best, but despite that I face children who won’t let me teach, blame me for their bad grades when they do no work, and are just so disrespectful. Constantly being observed by administrators, yet all they see is that “I” could do better. What about teaching our kids a thing called “self responsibility”.

I teach 8th graders going into High school next year. No, I will not give them candy for every time they do something they’re SUPPOSED to do.

I really need help with this situation. One student confessed me today that he abused his little brother when he was 12 years old. What can I do? This kid needs help and he trusts in me. I’m feeling overwhelmed with this thing.

I just spent 15 minutes of my precious prep time doing absolutely nothing because I am on the verge of tears. There is so much to do but I knew if I did not give my brain a break that I would break-down and take it out on my students for the rest of the day.

My school math’s department sucks. The majority of the math teachers don’t want to do their job. They just show the kids how to do the math problems and then just sit down at their desk and expect the kids to remember how to do it.

I swear, nobody gives a crap about what goes on this school anymore. Everyone does what they want. There is seriously no accountability and admin is all over the place. Praying that things get better.

I was threatened by a kid today. He told me he was going to find out where I live and burn my house down. To the principal’s credit, he dragged the kid into the office immediately and his parents were called. Still, the kid was not suspended. My lord, what is with our society today…?

A kid in grade 8 told me to get f***ed within the first two minutes of the lesson and because they are ‘easily agitated’, teachers are supposed to approach them in a ‘calm manner’. Forgive me if I’m wrong but I feel like I’m allowed to be far from calm!
