Maybe I Should Retire, or Maybe I'm Just Tired

In March, I was given the opportunity to take an early retirement but I decided not to take advantage of it for several reasons. I thought I just wasn't ready to be home all the time and then there was the pesky problem of health insurance for our 18 year old daughter and 20 year old son. But I tell you, almost from the moment I let the school district know that they were stuck with me, things have gone south. I have been overloaded with paperwork and too many meetings. I've had to discipline a third grade student for a bullying remark (not my usual role), and had to deal with another student who tends to lash out at me when asked to do work. I'm sick of all the people I work with and how some of them can't cut the parents any slack. Looking forward to the weekend and trying to keep in mind that we only have 30 school days left.

  5. Sorry it's been such a bad week for you. I think that working in a school system with all those kids would have to be a difficult job at times. You wonder how parents raise their kids.

  6. Sorry to hear about your week. I have some friends that are teachers and it's definitely not the same job that teacher's had years ago.

    Hang in there - summer is comin'!
