To those who have stumbled upon my writing: Welcome!
I started this web log to let off work-related steam without burdening my family or friends, or getting myself canned. Having a private place where I could safely tell true, ugly stories about my students and coworkers made teaching less painful. Of course, I left out the many lovely stories I also could have shared.
As the school year progressed there were more bad days, and more good ones. But spring got hectic (as it usually does), so I focused on handling the work rather than complaining about it.
I recommend scrolling down to the last entry and working your way up.

Your "war stories" are so familiar! Ive been teaching 7th, 8th, & 9th grade English for 347 years (I'm sure that's right) in Baltimore, West Virginia, and now Roanoke VA. Regular people don't understand AT ALL how it really is.
I hope your next year is better than last -- Tell some of your 'lovely stories' as well.
