I’ve worked at my center for 3 years now and we always do something for birthdays. Last year we didn’t really do much bc we were still figuring out covid. This year I expected at least something for my birthday…. But alas, nothing. I’m pretty sure my boss and coworkers forgot. I’m so over where I am, they really don’t care about the teachers here.

My school doesn’t do that. 🤨 every now and then co teachers will do something for each other but I find it a bit weird that it’s an expectation that something be done.

Oh sorry I just saw that they always do something for bdays but just missed yours. Yeah that’s kind of rude.

I am so very sorry your birthday was not recognized . I have a co-worker that came to school last week, on her birthday and brought her own cake for our team, cupcakes for her homeroom, and doughnuts for all the kids she teaches!!

I wonder if your co-worker might be Greek? I have a friend from Greece who always bright in doughnuts for her birthday & taught us that it was customary in that culture to bring something like doughnuts to share on your own birthday. I thought it was great!

My coworkers didn’t recognize mine back in November . If you like the job, kids, and money you make, that’s all that counts. You don’t t have to be friends with your coworkers. Don’t let it get you down.

Please don’t misunderstand!! I’m not implying you should have done the same thing. She feels like you do because the school has never recognized her day. Not only did she bring her own sweets, she turned in her resignation!!!!!

Seems kind of extreme to give up your job over birthday recognition. But maybe it wasn’t that at all… maybe they intended to resign and gave themselves a birthday present. There are lots of ways to look at this.

Happy birthday!! At my high school I have tried hard to recognize everyone's birthday on Social Media. For whatever reason, I may miss one (but only seldom if the person is not on my list). I would feel HORRIBLE if I missed one. (A few times I am a day late.) Then there are the teachers who ask that they NOT be recognized - which I also try to remember.

Yea I never get birthday recognition from my school either. I mean I get it from my work buddies and students. But I get what you are saying. They want us celebrate the Principals and AP birthdays, and buy them gifts, they could at least recognize ours

Pre COVID every 15th of the month a cake would be placed in the teachers lounge to celebrate all the teachers who were born in that month. All of that ended when COVID hit and I don’t see it returning anytime soon.

I have a summer birthday. We have a principal who does something for each teacher on their birthday, but nothing for me. Oh well.
