Not Happy

Need to win the lottery. Want a job closer to home. Sick of driving 25 minutes each way to work. Kids have places to go. Could have had a great job just around the corner.....but nooooo....current principal needs me to stay to support the two teachers she hired with no special ed experience. Hmmm probably not getting paid extra to "coach" the new kids.....Special ed director WAS more than happy to transfer me recognizing that this is something I have been hoping for the last two years..... Really does the crappy pay and summer off make teaching worth it???? (Gaaaw and please don't tell me the "kids" make it worth it.....I am not in the mood)

Ugh. Sorry. Glad I'm not the only one who feels I get the shaft in this field.

I remind myself - nearly every school day - that my job is a 'charity job'. I work for the benefit of others (making less than I need) to support my family. Looking at it that way, I'm a little less angry about it. I'm not sure why.

Thank GOD for good coffee, planning periods, & nutty co-workers.
