I’m honestly trying the best I can. It ain’t easy for substitutes.
I’d be writing if I had a computer to work with, but the teacher took it with her.
So I’m stuck with obnoxious, ungrateful, spoiled teenagers who could care less about the 9th grade math worksheets I’ve just handed them.
Listening to a bunch of bratty young girls complain about pants that arent white but aren’t cream, but somewhere in between.
God save me from these materialistic tweens.
I will say this, our education system sucks, and I’m glad I homeschool my kids. (No it’s not my fault it sucks) I’m usually not so tired and as far as substitutes go, I’m usually a pretty damned good one.
Kids today are either mindless testing robots, or dull and uncaring hooligans (okay, there are a handful that are exempt from this description I’ll admit, but they are out numbered.) It’s not really the teachers fault either.
It’s our government standards. Take a test, school gets funding, take another test, school gets more funding, take ANOTHER test, school gets even MORE funding…get the picture?
I’d honestly rather be helping my family bring the new bulls we bought home today than earning a measly amount to babysit mini adults who are still wet behind the ears.
Sigh. Tomorrow is another day, and another dollar.
Hope your day is better than mine
I’ll be applying stressaway oil now to kill the stress and drinking a Ningxia Nitro to wake me up.
