Dear Ms Manner,
I, too, teach four double periods per day with no
break... opps, I forgot my relaxing 20 minute duty free
lunch picking up scraps with one hand while chomping an
apple with the other. I like my situation because it is
so awful that only the bold, brave and committed ever
bid on positions at our alternative high school and I
have wide latitude in what I teach and how I teach.
Lehrer-freiheit is hard to find these days.
Sorry to hear about your colleague's picque. You, of

word 'bitch' is appropriately applied to some human
Enjoy your kids, ignore the dog dirt on the pathway
of life (your Science Chair-weight), and thank you for
posting your experiences. I feel better already!
