The rantings of a teacher who retired from the classroom but not from education.
I'm jealous. I only have one very tiny trash can, and none in the halls. You must work at one of those rich schools.
There are certain perks to being a city teacher. Please don't tell anyone, as they may take them away in the next contract.
nic- You can have one of mine- I have 3 trash cans, and two of them are those spiffy blue plastic numbers for recyclables. I am SO lucky to work for such a fine organization.
Actually, my trailer bathroom did not have a garbage can for a long time. I kept asking and asking, but couldn't get one. Finally, one day, I found an old pail, put a plastic bag in it, and have been using it ever since.
ADMINISTRATOR DESERVES "O" RATING FOR EXCELLENT SELF-AWARENESSPricipal Suit is brutally honest about what he has done for your school. Is that not an admirable trait?Since Tweed no longer values the contributions of educators, I'm certain that his career will be on a rapidly ascending curve.Logically, his next stop should be the NYC Department of Sanitation.
Do you have desks? I'll trade a trash can for a desk, even one with pornographic grafitti. It's not my trash can, what do I care? This could be a cottage industry; barter could make a comeback!! I share a desk problem with a colleague, maybe we could make these basic supply problems go away with a little wheeling and dealing. Isn't that the way things are done under the KleinBloomGarten regime?
I don't have a desk, I have a strong back. I carry everything I own on this back. Sorry, it is not strong enough to share or to barter.
I'm not even referring to a teacher's desk; my colleague and I move students' desks in and out of classrooms. We carry all our things in and out of those rooms, never mind a teacher's desk. Who needs a teacher's desk anyway, I'm up there teaching bell-to-bell!!
The bells are ringing.....for me and my students!
This is worse than my mother's principal who from 4 years ago, told the faculty at a faculty meeting:"This is what we are going to use our new physical education money for". Then the principal stood on her head with her legs wide open.**No, I am not making this up! This really happened.****
