Hello Lovies!! I miss you!
Today at lunch I spilled the beans about this blog. I said, "People have this crazy image about what it must be like in a classroom. They're so far off base!! You wanna know why? Because no educators have any time to write anything! We are too busy teaching. How is the information supposed to get out there?"
And beyond the sheer hours. You have to think about what we do. I haven't worked less than a 50 hour week all year. Even when we have half days (don't get sassy. I'm serious). There is just far too much to do.
But these aren't sit on your ass check your facebook 50 hour work weeks. For most of the day, I'm running around, trying to make education as personal as possible, while trying to get all the precious little white tigers to jump through the flaming hoop without getting mauled. And when I do get mauled everyone says, "oh, but it is in their nature to maul you, that's your fault for working with wild animals." Jerks.
For those of you who are still interested, I have a poo smearing story, a school bus masturbation story (with follow up on the track field), and backstage antics from our school play. Coming to you from the worst teacher ever. Because if you think you are doing this job right, you are more wrong than anyone.
