    Well, if the Principals pet talk will encourage the kids to behave and work hard on their lessons, then all the rest we hardly be noticed. And a good class is often all the reward a teacher needs, plus a decent stipend, or course.

    The problem does not lie with the teachers. It’s the school boards and administration that poisons the work environment. Kids know they can get away with most any action and will have minimal consequences. Used to have alternative schools to house the most disruptive and violent students. Not many ended up educated there but those in the regular school had much better results.

    Now all students in public schools are approaching equity. None of them will get educated in the end. Assuming they survive.

    That should take no longer than the first week. Been there, done that, and I’m not doing it again.

    ‘’Now, Miss Kelly, remember, just the bear minimum, just the bear necessities. Don’t challenge them or encourage free thought.’’

    I learned more in the library, than I ever learned in school.

    And yet, I’m never sure exactly why or where, a comma might go. So, I, like, to sprinkle, them, all, around.

    The first year, especially the first few weeks can be terrifying. I used over preparation to help. But, I also recognize that my physical size was an advantage that many new teachers did/do not have. Administrative support was almost non-existent but I didn’t care and was content on my island.

    And it gets worse if you’re in Florida or Texas

    A reasonable approach, Mr. Principal. Of course, wouldn’t the best way to keep her from finding out that the job doesn’t pay all that much would be to…to…to..(oh, Lord, I can hardly even type it)…pay her more?
