Thanks. Today's climate in education is difficult. In my job I deal with student teachers and classroom teachers. The classroom teachers are becoming more and more demoralized. It's a tough job and people don't realize how hard it is.I'm one of those demoralized teachers. I took a half year sabbatical this past year just to recoup, but I'm back at it. Kids are great, our parents are great, great but very stressed out faculty. Many excellent teachers have quit and gone to other jobs. Last year was the biggest retirement rate ever. They are now having to hire uncertified teachers. The top superintendent of our state is expecting miracles! He just sent an email to us saying he would be visiting us at school...big whoop.
I'm just counting my days, doing the best I can at school, and cruising when I can!!
