Being A Teacher

Who was it that said teaching was the easiest job ever? Who was it that said anyone can be a teacher?
That's complete ignorance talking. Teachers work every day. There's plenty of state requirements to keep you busy during every minute outside of school. Not to mention the required meetings and trainings that confine your one hour conference period. Then you have your grading and editing of papers.
In the mist of STAAR, I've come to another realization. I don't mind the STAAR for data collection purposes. It's nice to find out where students are lacking and where we need to focus our attention. But STAAR should not punish kids and keep them from moving up. Just as STAAR shouldn't be used to evaluate teachers.
All that being said, I'm exhausted, just as most of the working class in our society are. I love teaching. Otherwise, I wouldn't put myself through this. Why do people feel like they can vent about their jobs, but when a teacher does it, they're horrible? I love my students, I call them my kids. I think about their well being and worry for them as I do my own children. I pray for their success. I hope that's the part people remember.

Work, work, work

I put off grading the entire spring break. Here it is, the day before we return to school, and I'm just now grading papers. I didn't even take my bag out of the car until today. It was nice being off all spring break. But I wish I hadn't put work off until the last minute.
