    you need to move on. Start planning and working now to get another job. Try adult education, or corporate training, or something completely different. But if that's your attitude, I'd hate for my kids to be in your class. Sorry.

    the Republican brand is totally bankrupt.

      This piece is not a complain. It's meant to speak to teachers who encounter the same frustration on a daily basis. I've said repeatedly I love my job and could not see myself doig anything else. Contrary to what you might think, the students do enjoy my class- so much so I have won teacher of the month- several times.

      If you don't stand for something, you will fall for anything.

        If you have that much trouble getting started every day, you should find another career. People who love their work usually want to "get at it" every day.

        But if your diary is just an attempt to show the insanity of high school, you've succeeded. But then, most of the world is insane also! I agree many teachers are treated shabbily, but then, so are many employees.  Think about folks that are sent out of town on a moment's notice for a stupid meeting, only to miss a birthday or school play, etc.  Or folks that have to listen to stupid bosses spout corporate bs that everyone knows is bs (including the boss!)

        My advice is do your best and enjoy the insanity around you! Most of these kids will eventually become worthwhile human beings!!! (The others join the GOP leadership!)

        In an insane society, the sane man would appear insane

          The only reason it is hard to get up in the morning is because it is so dang early! Honestly, I love this job and this was merely to show how crazy a day in the life of a teacher can be. The ups out-weigh the downs and usually the same student who caused the "down" time is the one to bring it right by up only seconds later. Watching students grow is the most worthwhile thing I have ever done and plan to continue doing for many decades to come!! Hopefully, I can keep a few out of the GOP as well haha

          If you don't stand for something, you will fall for anything.
