  • I’m trying to leave the education field, but I wanted to share the most important thing I’ve done in the few years I worked as a teacher. One of my kids was having panic attacks in the bathroom every day bec […]

  • Yesterday a student wanted to fight me, her teacher, because I wouldn’t give her phone back to her as part of school policy. In my four years of teaching I have NEVER encountered such aggressive behavior. I d […]

  • In my small reading group we were reading about a character whose name was George. Later in the story the character is called by his full name, “George Red.”
    One of my students looked at my quizzically and asked, […]

  • I think this school has made me so disillusioned with the profession. This is my fourth year. I am resigning this year, and I’m actually going to find a new career. It breaks my soul that I put everything into t […]

  • Eight snow days in 2 1/2 weeks. DON’T CARE!!

  • Today, I think I crossed the threshold of pursing other career options outside of education. I have no idea what I will do, but something has to be better than this…I cannot do it anymore. I am overworked and undervalued.

  • A sub left a note about yesterday’s class saying “I hope you don’t endure this punishment and pain on a daily routine with no help from administration. God help the public education system.”

    This year I’ve go […]

  • I have been scratched by one of my students two days in a row and he’s drawn blood twice. I teach high school special education and while I love my students, I’m already bleeding in my first year of teaching.

  • Am I the only one who, faced by a pile of 60 English mock exams to mark, gives a little inward cheer when coming across the paper of a student who decided to use the two and a half hours to catch up on some sleep?

  • The new principal at our school( who was once a teacher in our school) is always looking for those gotcha moments. She harrassed me with emails from parents and one day pretended to pop in on my class three times […]

    Rang a parent to tell them I had organised a detention for their child as they did no work, were rude, arrived late to class and didn’t come to their original detention. They angrily asked since when do people […]

    My principal’s wife works at the same school, and takes control of who gets hired, based on who she likes (it’s a public school, government/taxpayer funded). She stands at the front door each day, and tattles, if […]

    My principal won’t enforce any sort of late policies (he’s rarely at school, apparently due to his own health issues). We have students who have failed all courses in a semester, and average between 50-60 abs […]

    I am an exceptional education teacher. I was about to do an academic test on a 4 year old with a speech issue. I told her she had pretty eyes. She told me, “I really like your pretty ass.” She meant class, but I h […]

    They’ve started to […]

    One day when I was teaching an interesting topic and ask my students to pay attention, and a student asks if he could use the washroom… This makes me feel irritated but I control myself

    I reprimand my middle schoolers for their foul language, but when I’m not at work I curse like a sailor.

    Everyday when the bell rings I loudly say “Have a good day!” …and some days I follow it with a whisper to myself “now get the f%#* out!”
