Why Teachers Retire Early

I put my back out last week, so I took Friday off school.

I left a test to be done by both classes, only to find a note in my inbox this morning telling me that, in class A, two of my 'sweethearts' had a fist fight in class while the horrified substitute teacher was trying to organise them.

This morning, I had meetings with TWO vice-principals... and, bitch that I am, I handed out a total of 10 detentions (and I'm not done) and one kid (the swinger) has been suspended for three days.


I hate playing bitch with a sore back. My performance was certainly not up to par. The kids were back to their usual normal fidgety selves within 35 minutes. I can usually get 50 out of them when I let fly.

I deal with the CLass B tomorrow. More detentions to hand out. Kids misbehaving during a test, etc.

Shit, they KNOW better.

I expect, as does the sub, that they will try a few things, but their behaviour Friday was totally unacceptable.

This is why we have trouble getting subs to come to the school, and this is why young teachers are 'retiring' so five years after they begin.
