Hopefully that will allow my BN presence to increase since I will need time to clear my head after a hectic day- that and there is always glorious, glorious BEER.

I taught at a school like yours for a year and hated it, so much entitlement and parents never believe their kid is misbehaving or not turning in work. I just can't stand the "my shit don't stink" families. My last few jobs I've loved and I think I've had about 15 families above the poverty line. I love working with students the system expects to fail because when they succeed it is so sweet. My only frustration is how we expect everyone to be at the same level educationally and then punish schools that don't. My students don't have the same opportunities as most students yet I get in trouble when a 10th grader that lives in a car or shelter can't perform at the same level as richy rich. That the biggest benefit of this new job we are not responsible for NCLB (the dumbest fucking legislation EVER).
Dude MG, the school I teach at is only 15-20 percent low income, with 10-15 percent rich kids, and the rest middle to upper middle and it kicks my ass every year...actually the parents are the worst part, maybe you won't have much of that in your new job, especially if said incarcerated student killed them(sorry...dark humor)...God Bless and good luck, the last week(first week of summer) has been awesome for me...couldn't do it without the break...between the ass kicking I take from coaching, the lack of adminstrative leadership and crazy parents the end of May is combustible....
Yeah so basically teacher is fucking hard and few people understand that or could do it. Keep it up, nice to know I'm not the only teacher that feels his ass getting kicked each year.

Thumbs to eyes always works. Of course, so does running and crying for help.
Next week I got to a police academy and learn "therapeutic holds and takedowns" and a couple of classes in how deal with aggressive individuals. I'm going to be a teacher ninja!
