Do you know why they didn't hire the cross-eyed teacher?
She couldn't control her pupils.
That, right there is a joke worthy of being called a dad joke. I have more if you need them.
I haven't blogged in awhile because i have been super busy. Like, crazy insane busy.
I've officially hit the bottom of the low point in my first year, and yes it is the pits. I am grateful for the fact that I know this is normal and will go away eventually. Working in charter school systems is hard. Parents decide that their kid isn't doing well, or not learning what they want or blabbedy blah blah blah. I just feel bad for the poor kids because I feel like they deserve some stability but that's just me. I keep losing kids, even in orchestra and it makes me feel like a bad teacher even though it's not my fault. I just always really like the kids that leave. Can't they just take the awful ones?
It doesn't help that other jobs are opening and I keep wondering if I would be happier here or over there, but then moving sounds way more daunting than just staying put for one more year so that's that.
I always wanted to be that cool teacher where students write me love notes....but this is all I get I guess.
It was pretty cool. I whited out some names so that I would be legal. If you see Jeffrey on there that is a student but not really. He's the invisible class member who tries to turn in other people's stuff with his name on it.
