Top 10 Reasons Teaching Sucks

Ladies and Gentlemen-

I may have just distilled the entire teaching universe down to 10 talking points. See what you think. Let me know.

TOP TEN REASONS YOU MAY NOT WANT TO BE A TEACHER

10) Become object of widespread public scorn;

9) Dignity offered as sacrifice to unholy lovechild of Bill Gates and Michelle Rhee;

8) Lazy, whiny, stupid, absent and/or unprepared students (which studies have shown to be the fault of teachers);

7) Need to use the bathroom? Great!! Your planning period is in two hours;

6) Lazy, whiny, stupid, absent and/or unprepared parents (are the responsibility of teachers);

5) 28-year old vice principals;

4) Rampant rubric fetishism and the glory of low-quality data;

3) In ironic twist, higher order thinking no longer needed;

2) Compulsory attendance at most ridiculous, unnecessary meetings on planet (no joke);

1) Work with children and be treated like one, too!

I hope you had a great Thanksgiving.

Hugs,

Mr. Teachbad
