A teacher came to me on Friday and said:
"I’m not saying anything against what you do, but I miss my art planning next week."
I kinda smiled.
She then said, “No one, but a teacher could understand the disappointment of that.”
I didn’t respond.
She goes on to say, ” Someone once said to me, but you get the whole day off.” She then says, “Yes, I get the whole day off, but some people get the whole day of and their hour planning this week.”
I responded by saying, “Well, I miss my planning too and I don’t even have an hour block of planning this year. Actually, none of the specialists do!”
What I really wanted to say was…”Are you fucking kidding me?!! You get computer lab, recess, science lab and field trips!! None of which I get. The only down time I get IS my planning, lunch and crazy ass office duty!! Maybe you should find a new job, you fucking idiot!! Secondly, is there some sort of alarm or buzzer that sounds when I come around cause I am so tired of hearing about people’s planning woes!! STFU…I don’t care!!
