i don't think kindergarten teachers should be sleeping at work.....
I agree. That's a terrible kindergarten teacher. I mean I know where OP is coming from, I'm a preschool teacher myself. Sometimes it's hard to stay awake because the job IS demanding. It's especially hard to stay awake at rest time. But that's the job, and OP sleeping on the job would be illegal where I live. The OP deserved whatever they got, and they were lucky it wasn't worse.
What the heck are you doing falling asleep at work if you are suppose to be teaching kids??
47- Exactly! There is no excuse for falling asleep at work especially for that kind of job. If I was a parent and found out that happened, I'd take my child out of there and report the centre (auto correct wanted me to put 'center', but I'm in Australia and 'centre' is correct) to child services. 63- I have been studying child care for years, and it is a fuck load harder than 'grading coloring books'. 90% of a persons brain development occurs in the first 5 years of life, so the job of preschool/kindergarten teachers (depending on what country you're in) is very important. Don't try to belittle the profession of child care workers, because they are shaping the newest generation.
People with opinions like yours is what's wrig with out society. Most teachers get to school an hour to two hours early and stay late. They not only have to be at the school while the students are but also have to take time outside of the schooldays to construct lesson plans and grade assignments. Most of the supplies in classrooms are up to the teacher to purchase. Plus, most elementary teaxhers also teach summer school. Not to mention the fact that they are responsible for the well being of 15 to 30 students for 8 hours a day. Now please tell me how that is an "easy" job?
@63 - Have you ever tried to supervise 20 or 30 4-5 year olds who's parents don't discipline them at all? It's not as easy as you think. Teachers don't get paid nearly enough. Also, I don't know where you went to school, but at my sons kindergarten, they had spelling tests, so the teacher is actually teaching, not just watching the kids.
85- You must be thinking of middle school or high school teachers. Kindergarten teachers, on the other hand, don't teach anything of substance and don't have to put in an extra few hours after school. It's KINDERGARTEN for god's sake. 95- Yeah most kindergartens do that. Congrats on enrolling your child prodigy in such a prestigious institution.
MURRIKA- I work with 3-5 year olds. I'm required to have a lesson plan prepared every day as well as documenting everything that happened during the day. I quite often find myself sitting at home, looking over my notes and planning my next lesson, and just wishing there were more people out there who can appreciate what a difficult job it is.
17- Considering that the problem IS, in fact, the media, You must be an idiot, as well, for using it! The media is a major part of what's wrong with the world today. If some kid got on here and saw YOUR first reply to this comment, which is on the Internet, (also known as the "media"), that would influence the kid in some way. I would hope that your comment would show the kid how to NOT treat people, and how to NOT act like a complete imbecile fool. Jerk! :[
It's not accurate to lay full blame on the media. Indeed, the media might have influenced the kid somewhat, but I guarantee you the same thing has been happening for many years. Besides, this is anecdotal evidence, you're gonna use this one FML story to claim correlation between the media and what goes through our children's minds?
The media is A problem, not THE problem. Children are impressionable and they can be influenced by family, teachers, friends (even at a young age), or anyone really. It is also the parents job to at least attempt to control what their kids watch. I worked at a daycare for three years. Some parents will let their kids watch anything. We actually caught one four year-old boy explaining how to give oral sex to a female Barbie doll to the other kids.
45 and 53- That would be the reason I said, and I quote, "the media is a major problem...". Not the problem... Not the biggest problem... But a "major problem". And you can't disagree there. The media IS a major problem with what's wrong with the world today. Maybe, not the entire problem... Maybe, not the biggest problem... But, definitely, a major problem. Exactly as I said.
I think He/She (I don't feel like going out of this comment box to check the gender) was quoting a song... "The Real Slim Shady" "My bum is on your lips, my bum is on your lips", and if I'm lucky, you might give it a little kiss and that's the lesson that we deliver to little kids And expect them not to know what a woman't clitoris is by the time they hit fourth grade they got the Discovery Channel, don't they? "We ain't nothing but mammals..." well some of us cannibals we cut other people open like cantaloupes (slurp)
I can't edit in this app... I pressed enter instead of space and enter to make the comment have different lines (like with songs lyrics)...Well... that didn't work out too well. My app decided not to accept my enter button presses, and now, everywhere I pressed enter, my words are touching eachother...sorry To restate what I said... He was quoting a song... "My bum is on your lips, my bum is on your lips", And if I'm lucky, you might give it a little kiss And that's the lesson that we deliver to little kids And expect them not to know what a woman't clitoris is By the time they hit fourth grade They got the Discovery Channel, don't they? "We ain't nothing but mammals..." well some of us cannibals ...etc
