This will probably be my last post. I'm closing down.

I turned in my resignation letter to Dr. Chee today. I just can't take it anymore. My last day will be next Wednesday.

It is all rather pointless, this thing called education. The raw materials we have to work with just get more inferior as the years go by. You always hope that eventually you'll hit the bottom in the well of stoopid, but nope, it always gets worse.

The kids we deal with are amazingly moronic, to the point of being painful. There is no hope for them, and yet, we are to make them 'career or college ready'! WTF? It ain't gonna happen.

I'm tired of the constant profanity spewing from the mouths of 14-year-old girls.

I'm tired of having to monitor teenage cleavage.

I'm tired of being expected to break up potential teenage breeding pairs hiding in the bushes.

I'm tired of the endless testing that doesn't measure anything valid.

I'm tired of the mindless 'professional development days' which don't have any value.

I'm tired of the lazy kids who constantly need to be 'motivated' to work.

I'm tired of these lazy kids expecting a decent grade just because "I turned in all of my work!"

I'm tired . . . . .

Not sure what I'm going to do yet. I have some money saved up. Might be enough to last a year or so. I'm hoping that sales position at PayLess Shoes comes through. At least I'll be doing something that I could be proud of, you know, making people happy with a new pair of shoes on their feet.
