i work in a school that has had me for 5 years. I started like gangabusters
and have been watching Feathers settle ever since.
I was wondering why we presure that teachers and PTA's would be any different
thatn anyone anywhere else in the world.
They are not.

We are "support faculty"
We are relief for a planning period away from the class
We have it easy, walking out after 45 minutes.

There are always those who look at your job as too easy or too worthless in
comparison to theirs.
But after absorbing all or this, I realized that nothing I could ever
do will change much of any of this.
So if I cannot change it, I must focus on something I CANchange.
Although I cannot live in an ivory tower, I have no classroom and My supplies
come n only 6 or seven months late all the time..
The kids are expressing themselves in ways we might have only dreamed of
when my generation was in elementary school.
May it ever be so.
