    Teaching is important. I like doing it. I like the way it makes me feel. I can't say that about everything I've done in my life.

    there is "life's random" and "**** happens" and then there is intentional malicious actions by another individual, there is a difference.

    I felt like that for about the first 4-5 years and then it started going downhill. The last couple of years I absolutely hated it.

    I've always liked teenagers. I miss working with them on a daily basis. Now, I just interact with the two at my house. And most of their friends.

    I understand. It can happen to anyone. I've been at it about 14 years now. So far, I'm still good to go.

    I'm actually an old elementary teacher. However, I've been working as a librarian for the last four years. I'm qualified to work high school and I am looking forward to, someday, working with teens.

    My wife has never been accused of anything but what burns me up are these stupid uneducated parents that come to school complaining about the way their child is treated when they misbehave at school and a teacher must deal with them. These kids are not taught how to behave in public and then the parents claim the teacher is picking on their child because they have never spent the time and effort to teach their child proper behavior. Kids run around like madmen, cuss, disrespectful, cannot keep their hands to themselves and when the teacher does something about it, its the teacher fault the kids are misbehaving. For once do these people ever think that a child is a responsibility and not a way to get more money out of the govt?

    These are the kinds of parents all teachers tend to remember. An awful lot of parents suck at being parents..............and they know that. In my experience parents like this tend to overcompensate for their deficiencies as parents by being confrontational with teachers rather than working with them for the benefit of their children. Unfortunately, they invariably end up teaching their children the wrong lessons.

    my first year teaching, I taught physical and earth science to 7th and 8th graders. I pissed off one mother because she wanted me to teach her son how to behave. I told her very plainly, "I cannot do in one hour a day what you have failed to do in 13 years". yeah, that didn't go over very well.

    That's funny. I wish I could have heard you tell her that.

    Legend has it around here we once had a jr high teacher that had this interaction with a child's mother. Mother; how come my kid is failing your class. Teacher; Well...........just look at him.
