    I have been a dedicated middle school teacher for over a decade, but the current kids have broken me. EVERYONE has failed them. Most dont care because mommy will bail them out. The ones who want to do well are […]

    Recently I had an interaction with a guardian who was angry that basically their student fell through the cracks of a special education program that I am responsible for.

    They were right. They were also […]

    In my school, the afternoon music teacher has been moved to the science lab for teaching. Meanwhile the science teacher wants to get into the lab and they won’t let her. Art is taught in what used to be the […]

  • I’m a recently qualified high school teacher who has taught the same AP English class for the last two years. Today they got their results back from a national assessment: my kids got the third highest marks in t […]

  • I’ m tired of rude, disrespectful teens who are socially & academically behind. They don’t care. They let their”f” bombs drop daily and I’m tired of no consequences. I want out. I’m willing to go on a leave just […]

  • One of my first successes in my first year of teaching, teaching science and math at a private school, was with an 8th grader who had wealthy uninvolved parents and a very privileged life. He hated class, school, […]

  • Too many staff at my school have gotten concussions from kids this year. Many times they have that student back in class the next day. I wish someone would take a survey to see how many serious injuries happen […]

  • One of the department chairs I work with on the leadership team is loved by the Principal. However, his objective as a leader is to give more work to his team, treat people with condescension, and he wears the […]

  • I started teaching at a reputedly good school – but got offered a job to teach 6th grade rather than 1st grade – I hate it, the kids are defiant and rude and unkind, despite trying so hard with them. I am […]

  • My name is Linda DeCator and yes….it was time for me to retire from teaching after 40 years. My confession:. After teaching 8 years in 3rd grade I was feeling that I needed a change. So I went to my […]

  • Ever notice that the emails you get that are exactly-how-we-were-taught-to-avoid-being-confrontational are even worse than just plain confrontational ones?

    How to spot:

    I might be wrong, but…

    I remember […]

  • I’m a second year teacher and the teachers I work with on the same grade level are all so depressing. I have no inspiration and no one wants to collaborate or smile. We have pretty good/fair admin and great m […]

  • I am a student teacher who is in a very unique situation. I got hired mid-semester to be an Autism teacher in elementary public school. They were desperate for someone to come in, and my professor, who is also the […]

  • I never came so close to swearing at a 6th grader until yesterday. I’m a band director, and I was telling students that they were excused from coming to their rotating small-group lessons if they were absent from […]

  • I work in an alternative education setting and yesterday I went to my second funeral in the past school year for one of my students who has committed suicide. Every day has been a struggle, so much so, that […]

  • I work in an alt ed school, and it is an entirely different animal. A write-up gets you an automatic suspension. Too many physical altercations and you get kicked out. My colleague broke his finger while trying […]

    Some teachers are my school are okay, others truly care about kids. What I can’t stand are teachers who are lazy and don’t want to give good instruction in teaching kids. You can’t expect the kids to learn if they […]

    I taught in a first nations community in northern community. We administered tests at the end of May. They were tests designed by our head office in Winnipeg. May up north offered only about 3 hours of darkness, […]

    I love my students as humans, and I wish I could just sit and have therapy class. They need it, I need it, and trying to do all of my sh*t while taking care of all their sh*t is making me want to walk out and never return.

    I am secretly rebelling against the institutionalization of our students, and also, myself. Here are my dubious acts of defiance:
    1. I sign all student passes with “Dwight Shrute”. Makes me laugh, and no one eve […]
