As a teacher, I am part social worker, counselor and teacher. Why the fuck don’t we get paid for this shit?

I am worn out mentally, emotionally and physically! We have to listen, guide, counsel, assist, teach, scaffold balance, dictate, model, assess, evaluate, increase, decrease, and on and on. These negative attitudes are exhausting and frustrating and ridiculous.

I will never forget the day my dad told me not to become a teacher. “They don’t amke any money”

I will never forget the day my mom told me to become a techer. “You would be a great teacher.”

Both are so true! Both are so frustrating.

The emotional satisfaction sometimes never occurs and is certainly not enough.
