Catching Up!!!

I've been really bad about keeping up with the blog... I don't know it could be the stress at work. This has truly been the WORST year ever. I have been teaching for 9 years now and this year tops it all. It is not just my class either (which by the way i do have some really great kids)... my working environment isn't exactly all roses. It has been a MESS I am ready for a new year!!!! Summer can't come fast enough!!!!! Here are some lessons I have learned this year

1~ no more purchasing fund raiser items because you'll get accused of not paying even though you did and it was in front of 2 other teachers

2~ kids can wear what they want I DON'T CARE because when it's cold outside you can wear shorts and a t-shirt because I don't want a letter complaining I sent you in

3~ don't send emails out even if it is a CUTE picture of Drew wishing the faculty and staff Happy Valentine's Day because someone will turn you in to district office and you'll get a write up in your permenent record... note to self ... remember to write a thank you note to that person because I now know what I can and can't send out OH WAIT... they were annonymous (grow some balls)

4~ be sure to watch your back because someone has a knife and doesn't want you to take a position that you are VERY qualified for and they will do anything to keep you from it...refer to #3

5~ make sure your resume is OVER THE TOP because you want to make sure you get that interview for the JOB you really want and that you are VERY qualified for BUT wait #3 and #4 are on the committee to decide if you get an interview so JUST FORGET IT!!!

6~ even if your undergrad is PRE VET MEDICINE for large animals and you have over 24 hours of other sciences and were short 12 hours to minor in chemistry you still won't have enough science experience than 11 others that applied and got an interview...refer to #5

7~ don't forget you need a masters degree for that job... I DO.... BUT wait refer to #5

8~ when a student tells you they hate you DO NOT tell them there is a club for that on campus and they should join it because they will look for it

9~ when showing artic videos to your class be sure to preview it to the end because the walrus is the the gassious mammal on earth and it FARTS really loud and you will have to hear farting walrus noises ALL DAY!!!!

10~ oh and the kids can come to school without brushing teeth, putting on deo, taking a bath, and wearing soiled clothes because when you send them to the clinic discreetly and secretly GUESS what you'll get another angry complaint


10~ when you have a big BACKSTABBING KNIFE sticking out of your back.... your REAL friends and family will ALWAYS be there to help you out!!! and when you think it just can't get any worse there is always choir practice to make you feel better!!!!


here are a few things that have helped me stay out of the mental institute this year!!! SUMMER CAN'T GET HERE FAST ENOUGH!!!

family will always be there for you

FIESTA means that school is almost over and you only have to go to work 4 days
this was Drew last year at FIESTA what a difference a year makes

AND I LOVE to see Drew DANCE!!!! it makes me melt!!!

so to sum it up I must really LOVE teaching because I will be back next year and always look up for relief and guidance... AND family and friends always have your back!!!!

Oh girl. Poor thing. This was what teaching was like for me SEVERAL years. Horrible.....mostly my problems were about one person, and I LOVED the girls I taught with, so they made it way better. There are so many women in teaching who are petty, and not very smart (sad to say) and they give the rest of us a bad name. No wonder teachers are underpaid! It's because these idiots make us all look like babysitters.
Hugs to you and hoping things get better....

Oh goodness! I am glad this year is nearly over for you and hope your anonymous "friend" finds a new job! I say bring on the pictures of Drew ~ he is absolutely adorable and whoever gets offended is just jealous that you have such an amazing little heart throb! You rock and have always been full of fun and energy! Sorry this person isn't as great as you are!
