When I feel like there is a conspiracy against older teachers (I am not in that group, but I still feel the pain.)
When I feel like education has gone down the tubes and it is not worth the effort anymore.
When I feel like chucking it all because I'm tired of fighting the system. I'm tired of administrators who put accountability first and learning second.
I open my e-mail and find this:
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY, Mrs. PoD!
These kids are making it hard for me to do what I know I should do.
