Teachers definitely do not get paid enough to deal with all the BS that they have to deal with on a day to day basis. The average salary for a teacher is less than $50,000 a year. Dealing will Terrible Timmy is certainly not worth that kind of cash.
Teachers are like soccer moms times 10. They are always lugging around games, homework, supplies and papers that need to be graded. I hope they have good health insurance so they will be covered when their back goes out from carrying all that crap.
Teachers have to deal with whatever fad is popular at the moment. Fads distract students and make things so much harder and so much more annoying for the teachers. Whether it be some new stupid dance move or fidget spinners, teachers hate fads and rightfully so.
Whenever a new Disney movie comes out, teacher hunker down and brace themselves. They know that they will forever have to hear the songs and will never ever be able to get them out of their head for the rest of their lives. Talk about an ear worm.
In order to deal with children so early in the am, teachers need to pass out extremely early. Like right after they get home from school. Believe it or not, they don't want school to start that early either.
They get paid less than $50,000 a year to be a teacher, but they are so much more than that. They are a babysitter, therapist, nurse, best friend, parent, drill sergeant and more. Are you starting to see why they need to raise? They have 15 different jobs disguised as one.
The year is over and you think that you never have to see Terrible Timmy and his horrible parents ever again. That is until you get his brother, Terrible Tommy the year after. If you thought Timmy was bad, you haven't seen anything yet.
There should be a separate salary just for making lesson plans! Teachers wind up being just like that procrastinating student you can't stand because it's too much work. Teaching is hard enough and now they are given homework? No thank you!
They start the new year off fresh and new. They end it looking like the Junk Lady from Labyrinth. Their voice it shot, their back hurts and they would be happy to never ever see another child again. But they will in like 2 months.
If kids spent the amount of time that they spend figuring out new ways to cheat on studying, they would all be getting straight A's. From writing answers on water bottles or inside calculators to typing notes on their phone, students have really gotten creative over the years.
If a teacher makes one mistake, they will never hear the end of it. Like when they called Peter "Penis." It was like the world ended and everyone's brain exploded. Too bad they don't know that you did it on purpose. Jerks.
Putting out fires, breaking up fights, helping a girl with her boy problems, nursing a kid with a scraped knee, cleaning a bad spill, dealing with girl drama. There is so much a teacher does in one day. They are doing so much in fact, they don't even have to do what they are getting paid to do....
