Just a quick note…
As I start my blogging venture, I have shared this with a few friends and gotten some good feedback which prompted me to write this post. Please do not misunderstand the purpose of this blog. I love my job. I love the subjects I teach, and I know my students enjoy working with me. But the fact of the matter is there is a lot of pressure on teachers to be practically perfect. If we don’t smile all day and maintain absolute strict discipline at all hours, we are criticized and even insulted sometimes by parents or administration. And I am not referring only to where I work- this, I feel, applies to all schools.
Some people blog for a living and some for fun. I choose to blog for fun; it’s just a way to poke fun at the things we experience every day that no other profession in the world would experience. Never would I write names of any person or place here. Notice I don’t even include my own. It isn’t about disrespecting anyone - it’s just a forum to vent/share/laugh/complain and move on with our day.
And, hey, freedom of speech exists for a reason, right?
