    Little Neuro wears a hospital gown? I think this is the first time I’ve actually seen Petey’s favorite character.

    If you’re going to quote Randall from Clerks II, at least identify the source — you don’t want to be claiming credit. Somebody on the discussion board will call you on it.

    B.C. should probably rethink the vegan intention; I’m not sure that dousing oneself in brussels sprout and cauliflower urine before the harvest is much more palatable.

    Good grief, so was mine! He worked at Red Owl market in Aurora, CO. My history teacher drove us to the airport on a family vacation — he worked for Yellow Cab during the summer. We would also bump into Mr. D., a very popular math teacher, during the summer break — he was the attendant at the local Putt-Putt miniature golf course.

    It’s one reason I don’t put too much credence on those who claim teachers are overpaid.

    Nicely done, Nabby. Much as I appreciate the work the vast majority of teachers do, I do have to admit your post proved your point that the education system does indeed produce its share of failed products.

    Ah…. so you’re changing up the old saying. Based on your input to the discussion today, it should actually be:
    .
    Those who can, do. Those who can’t, ignorantly criticize the ones who are willing to do it.

    … and then management complains about how overcompensated the workers are. They don’t realize that what they’re actually complaining about is their own poor negotiating skills. Nobody holds a gun to their heads to agree to contract terms. If it’s a bad contract, they have only themselves to blame.

    If it’s such an effortless, lavishly compensated boondoggle, why don’t you go teach for your local junior high?
    .
    You’ll only report to the classroom about 6:45 each morning, supervise 30 or 40 tweens who didn’t have breakfast and are more interested in their cell phones than in your activities, maybe have 10 minutes to grab a bite of sandwich before you have lunchroom monitor duty, then at 3:30 spend half an hour cleaning your classroom because the janitorial staff has been cut, then go to the mandatory staff meeting and inservice until 5:30.
    .
    Assuming you’re not the sponsor of the year book, or the chess club, or the photo club, or coaching the wrestlers or the cheerleaders for the handful of kids who participate in extracurricular activities, you might be able to leave for a few minutes before your evening duties start.
    .
    You might get home at 6, spend half an hour with your own kids, then go back to school for an evening of parent-teacher conferences… or gym chaperone for a dance…. or gym police for a basketball game… or any one of the dozens of evening activities that teachers do an average of 12-15 times per month.
    .
    You’ll then get home at 9:30 or 10:00, then spend 2 hours grading tests and term papers and planning the next day’s activities. Go to bed at midnight, ready to get up at 5:30 to do it all over again.
    .
    When you finally have 20 minutes to yourself on Sunday, you can spend some time reading politicians in the newspaper describing how lazy and uncaring you are, and how you’re sucking at the public trough without contributing to society.
    .
    A full-time equivalent is considered to be 2080 hours per week. The average junior high teach spends 2200 to 2250 hours per school year working directly on school related tasks — and they do that in 10 months so that they can have scorn heaped upon them for “taking the summer off.”
    .
    Go teach. Just ONE semester. Assuming you even qualify for consideration. Then come back here and share your experiences.
