Teachers

Confession: I am so SO happy to have spent the past 3 weeks from the insane demands from entitled parents. It was so bad that the relief even outweighs the sadness of not seeing my class. 😢

I agree. The parents are worse than the kids. The kids learn from their parents. It’s a vicious cycle.

My partner teacher and I had a 4th grader say to us, verbatim, “rules don’t apply to me... maybe right now I have to do stuff, but when I’m grown up, I won’t have to follow the rules.” I dunno what lawless, anarchist state he’s planning to live in but I wish him the best! 🙄

I didn’t escape :( I still have parents making demands during the online school via emails. They want their kid in an honors class over the summer that they don’t qualify for with the 90%. The requirement is a 97%, which I think is too high but I don’t make the policies. I also have the kids that didn’t work in school so they definitely don’t work online and now all of a sudden the parents and counselors are starting to notice even though I alerted them in the past. At least there is no commute.

I’m so sorry you’re dealing with that! I’m dreading the start of online schooling because I’m scared bitchy parent emails will just take on a new form 😖

No judgement here! No one know what you were going through. I work in a district that has horrible turnover and the person whom I was working with isn’t certified and I have been planning and making copies for two classes since they let the teacher go in September. I was literally exhausted and I am Not doing that next year. Way to stressful!

I think parents are quickly learning how hard our work is.

Agreed. It feels bad to be hoping someone else has a bad time, but I really hope parents are having a rude awakening. Maybe finally get teachers a shred more respect from them now

Making the move to DC in October and need some tips on living-options! I’m in my early-20s and wanna live in a youthful/fun area (I’m from NYC so any neighborhoods similar to east village/LES/Greenwich village). Second question is, would it be worth the $ saved to live in Arlington? I’m a big city girl but was just curious.
