ABCs of Teachers Left Behind

 

students Absent 4 out of 5 days

Budget cuts send many teachers home

overcrowding in Classrooms is not a joke

Deadlines that require after 8pm and

to do lists are Endless and regenerative

Faculty favorites do little work

Teaching = exhaustive, Grueling hours because of

Hostile, disrespectful students

Piles of paper – Immense and monotonous

Juggling meetings and grading papers

Fear of being stabbed with everything and a Knife

Lack of security

stress induced headaches; Major aches and pains

Necessary – most of it is not   

unattainable Objectives

Preparing students for tests they don’t care to pass

lunch breaks too short to even be called Quick

Resting a moment – unthinkable

limited Supplies

Tennis shoes for hundred dollars, but they can’t buy pens and paper

Furloughs, Unpaid, making a small take home even smaller

Vain administrators ignore teacher needs

June and July is all We wait for

X-rays sometimes needed

Parents don’t talk; they Yell 

Zero tolerance for teachers who speak out

 

 

No Teachers Left Behind

Sounds like the rant of a very frustrated teacher indeed. It's too bad that not enough emphasis is placed on our educators. They are preparing the future and yet their job seems thankless. Well done.
