I am so very tired of some of this crap going on in public education.

Join the club! I feel just like you do. I have not job to return to in Sept. so I really am think of leaving K-12 ed. I have a library degree so I can work in any type of library. The only thing is there are NO library jobs out there either. So while I feel your pain, make sure you have some place to go before you up and quit. The economy is terrible and I think the job market is bad for everyone.

I can relate! Every day my job seems to get harder. Add on to that unruly teenagers, and I daydream about peaceful desk jobs, neat offices, polite coworkers...

I am probably teaching next year unless I find a better job before the school year starts. After that, SO and I will hopefully be having a baby (TTC in a few months!) so I can take a nice long break from education and really think about my options.
