What I can say...


What I can say is that I'm frustrated when I'm not trusted to do my job.

What I can say is that my profession requires me first to prove my own competence, then argues against it daily.

What I can say is that I don't owe anyone an explanation about what makes me uncomfortable.

What I can say is that teaching can be a parasitic drain on "normal life."

What I can say is that in order to survive in this job, you have to harden your heart. I can say that I see it change people by the time they retire.

What I can say is that I know I can't do this forever.

What I can say is that I wanted to make a difference. I can say I know now that it won't really happen, or it won't happen enough.

What I can say is that thinking you can do a job better than someone doesn't mean you should.

What I can say is that my job breaks my heart way more often than it makes me proud.

What I can say is that I know myself and what I can't handle.

What I can say is that I'm glad this week is over.



Since my tongue is tied by self-imposed boundaries of the specifics of my job, here's a wonderful blog post about teacher evaluation, the BS bureaucracy surrounding education, and someone else's view of what's wrong with our system. (Thanks, Dunn.)

Peace out, nerds.
