I never had thought that teaching requires a lot of stress except for dealing with children all day. I knew that the teacher had to answer to a few superiors at the school, but it never occurred to me that teachers sometimes just can't handle the kids and their superiors. Today during my last class while we were taking a vocabulary test my teacher just started to cry. We were concerned, of course, but I thought it was going to be something that had to do with her family, not school. When we asked her if she was okay she replied by saying, "It's that time of the year, ya know?" I was taken off guard by this answer to be honest. I thought that for teachers the end of the year is when things were winding down, much like it goes for students.

I would like to thank all the teachers I have ever had because they teach in private schools. I know public schools pay more than private schools and have better benefits. Not only did they teach at a private school, but they could be using their masters and doctorates for practically anything they wanted. Thank your teachers and be kind to them. They gotta put up with a lot of pretentious squirts just like us every day.


  1. (May I have permission to follow your blog?)

    I think you're cool for posting this. My dad is a teacher, so I kind of understand teachers a little bit, but it's still hard to think that they have lives. I respect them a lot, even if it doesn't seem like it.

  2. Of course you may follow me! I didn't know that your dad was a teacher. That is cool.

  3. To be honest, the class is full of people who have no care whatsoever for said teacher. All some of them do is complain about how "shitty" of a teacher she is, when she really just loves her job. Teachers don't even get paid for all that they do and those students have the nerve to hate on her. Betta' recognize, son.

    In addition, I seriously seriously enjoy your blog. WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOP!

  4. I'm happy you like it! She does have a hard job and I realize that. I don't think she is that bad of a teacher. It's just English. A lot of people won't like the class no matter who is teaching it.
