School's out for summer, thank God!

Today, I had 15 teenagers literally laugh in my face when I asked them to be quiet. I'm a student teaching in a high school, which is the culmination of 2 years of my life and $20,000, and I might in fact actually hate doing it. FML

Hey. No shame in doing something else. I fight with that decision every year... I’ve been teaching for seven now and with all the policy changes, kid behavioral problems, and lack of teacher support I’m fiddling with finding a new career.

First, if you’re not feeling it, don’t be a teacher. It’s my passion and I still struggle to return to it every year. It’s just tough being a teacher in the US.

Second, where did you get a teaching degree in 2 years for $20,000?? I get that you’re still a student, but student teaching usually comes at the end of your schooling. I’m jealous!
