    children I taught, the flack from parents and the community isn't worth it. Thats' what we've got to get across to potential teachers to understand.  No matter how good you are with children and no matter how much your class achieves, you are lumped with a tiny group of weaker teachers.  You will be HATED for some infraction that happened in a classroom six years ago with a child or some distant memorty a parent has of a teacher they had twenty years ago.  Teaching, in the present environment is TOXIC.

      I am starting my 34 year of teaching and it is harder every year.  Some days I hate it. Tonight I got an email from a parent who wanted to let me know how much his daughter loves my class....that helps me stick with it.

      We all have photographic memories. Some people just don't have any film.
