ENOUGH is ENOUGH!

No photo today...no work today...just a sad and scary realization.  Today I was shoved into a door by a student who told me he was leaving early.  This 6'5" young man pushed me when I asked him to wait for the bell.  I don't know if I have ever told you all that I'm all of 5' tall. I went to find a principal to discuss the event...I was told they were busy so to e-mail them for a meeting tomorrow...I took my soar back out of there... So, enough is enough...no more subbing, no more public school system for this tired and disillusioned teacher!

The rainbow is I am now back at my real first job of creating, inventing, experimenting, posting happy (mostly) blogs and working at finding venues for workshops for...hopefully...happy and safe adults!

Wish me luck!  HAPPY CREATING TO YOU ALL!!

I am so glad you are out of there, my friend. Enough was indeed enough. Take at least a day for you to just relax and regroup!

From one ex teacher to a teacher you should have stood your ground with the principal this was a health and safety matter. When I left teaching I decided never to do supply because no matter what the school the students know you will not be there forever. I like your blog it is indeed a happy blog.

Good for you. As you said, "enough is enough." No one should have to put up with that kind of behavior.

Hey its Savannah. Im sorry you left, and im sorry so many kids treated you so poorly, you dont deserve that, no one does. When I found out you left this morning in class I was really upset. I actually stormed out of the art room and started crying when I was driving home. It hurt me so much to see you go, but I understand your reasons for leaving us. If it means anything I thought you were a great teacher, I probably learned more from you in the short time you were here then in the 4 years I had our regular teacher. I really enjoyed learning from you and you helped me a lot.
Im very sorry for how your time with us went, Im really uspset with how rude and disrespectful we were as a whole. But I hope you and the people who read your blog know that there are some kids who liked you and appreciated you. I know I did. Again I will say that im very sorry for what happened and I wish there was something I could do.
I will miss you!
