    are going to be unpleasant next week. Glad I'm going away :)

    What I get consistently from the head of our local union is automatic "no's." I don't see (in THIS town) thought and evaluation going into anything. If it means more work, it "no." And that is due to the fact that they are overworked to begin with. They are up until midnight correcting, spending weekends in school. The cannot tolerate more. BUT it also means they close their minds to much that could be beneficial. The whole system is a mess. And this may sound like betrayal to colleagues, but I cannot abide the ones that phone it in, and they exist in enough numbers to impact kids. And speaking "betrayal" is that what we will be hearing from the union after they supported Obama in the election? This is not going to be pretty.

      LOL.  My wife cannot leave her 3rd grade classroom to even go to the bathroom during the entire school day.  She gets 15 minutes for lunch which she usually eats while giving students who ask extra help.

      You don't have a clue.

        and didn't read my post. I said that the reason teachers cannot deal with more stress is because they are overburdened as they are. I resent being told I don't have a clue. AND our union rep here was inept and I said clearly I was referring to OUR situation. You picked two words out of my comment, took them out of context and dumped on me. Ass.
