Well, keep in mind that teachers never, ever, ever stop learning and studying.

Even though they be stupid. butt. heads.


What was the question? I've been drinking. SURPRISE!

Weisszach I agree that teachers complain too much. If you are well suited to it, teaching is a GREAT job. If you are not, it is complete misery. I had 20 great years in the classroom.

My Aunt used to be on the board of district 81. She's not now because she has principles. I love my Aunt.

Spokane- Fantastic scenery, awful politics.

Well then, I guess you are a really BIG stupid butt head.

Folks, I'm really depressed tonight. Truly. Go hug a teacher, if you can. In some ways, it's the loneliest job in the world.

And just for the record: I'm a college teacher, which is the fuzzy wuzzy cushy wushy version of teaching.

The REAL teachers deal with our children.

So yes. I, too, am a stupid butt head. Of epic size. Ridley's stuff.

And I'm depressed tonight. Have I said that already?

Soon your whole school is going to know that their teacher is an alcoholic. If they already don't. I am going to make sure. Then you will be sorry. For being a teacher.

Oddly enough, many of my college instructors have been awesome. Completely the opposite of what I dealt with in public school.
I feel for you, but I'm not going to pretend that the completely useless and power hungry scum I dealt with in public school were anything but. I will not guild the turd.
And I'm depressed too from thinking about those awful people and how I let them win for so long.

Let me repeat though that I am idealistic enough to believe that this is a local issue and that other places actually have good teachers.
I have a lot of respect for what a teacher represents. The ideal of a teacher is an ideal that I admire. But I encountered less than 3 people in public school who lived up to that ideal.
The rest seemed to have the mentality of Zimbardo's guards.

Sorry. Not trying to harsh your buzz any further. You seem a good dude and I believe that you are probably one of the good ones.
Like I said, I have had some great instructors in college.

I was responding to that other dude, not critter.

Critter, "guild the turd" is a totally new expression for me. I love it.

Stoney, if you hadn't beat me to it already I would have called you a really stupid butt head. So instead, you're a stupid vagina face. So there!!!

Please remember that the lesson of Zimbardo's experiment was that the structure of a situation shapes good people's actions. Structures that are laid down by administrators.

Good teachers are generally underrated and underpaid; bad ones are generally overrated and overpaid.

"Good teachers" usually identified as the ones for whom we have fond memories. Memories are notoriously unreliable.

Not my definition of choice, and not the one I was using.
