I quit teaching - TheCancer - 03-05-2011 02:04 AM

My last post here was, I guess, about a year ago. I became defensive about people bragging about being rude to teachers and was asked to quit posting here. At least, that's how I remember it. Anyway, I feel inclined to let anyone here who cares know I quit teaching. I was saying that I thought I wasn't going to be rehired but I was. But this year the negativity in the public school environment made me just feel awful about the students being forced to be there and I felt sorry for myself being there as well. As low pay as my salary was, I'm now living on a lot less. I just want to say that public school in America, at least the parts of it that I've seen as a teacher, is absolutely terrible and depressing. I'm sorry that any of you have to waste your precious youth in those monsters of oppression. That's from the bottom of my heart and 100% true.

Welcome back.

Hey Cancer.

I somewhat remember you but not much.


Re: I quit teaching - The Desert Fox - 03-05-2011 06:57 AM

I remember you as well.

Well you can chill here man. Usually when someone tells you to stop posting on here you tell them to fuck off

This oh so much.

Just a bunch of self righteous elitist faggots here.

I remember you... welcome back. Biggrin

You are happier now, I hope?

Much happier but seriously worried about my future.

Thanks for being friendly everyone.

I wish we had a Classified forum so we could help you find a job. You're sorry we have to waste our youth in those places, we're sorry you, one of the few people who actually cared about youth, had to waste your life in one of them.

Hope you can get back on your feet making a decent wage soon, Cancer. You're always welcome here.

Damn. Well, welcome back, Cancer, and here's hoping you can find yourself a decent job. If you need help, we're all here.


Re: I quit teaching - LOON_ATTIC - 03-05-2011 02:59 PM

Welcome back, it's pretty... inspiring that you've done that rather than just go along like everyone else. Wish you luck finding a good source of income.

Hi there! I don't think I've seen/remember you, but good luck with everything!


Re: I quit teaching - SoulRiser - 03-07-2011 01:36 AM

Could you try getting a job at some kind of decent alternative/private school maybe? Like one of those democratic schools.

I could try but I doubt I will. I'm (hopefully) done with teaching. Screw it. It sucks. I'm determined to be the best damn dishwasher I can be.

BTW, can you link me to something about a 'democratic school'? Because everything I've been exposed to, from top to bottom, is complete crap.

Actually I Googled it myself. Thanks for the suggestion. Who knows?


Re: I quit teaching - SoulRiser - 03-07-2011 03:49 AM

Would be awesome if you can find one that's hiring. It wouldn't really involve any "teaching" in the normal sense.

It might not offer any decent pay in the normal sense either.

What now?


I quit teaching - TheCancer - 05-26-2017 07:54 PM

I've been unhappy for a long time. I'm going to work on that this summer.
