How about a genuine psychiatric condition brought on by teaching?


For instance, I am very paranoid that most, if not all, administrators are sociopathic boogymen that will get me if I'm not hypervigilant.

Yes Beth, one of the many acceptable answers. Who else, come on, cause you know you have it.


Why did I post this?? Well because I was helping the teacher in the room I'm working in. She told me and someone else to just clean up the room and put some things up on the wall.


SHE CHANGED IT ALL. hahahahahahahahahahahhahahaahahaha! And why because as teachers we have our rooms setup in our minds and we know exactly where every little tiny pieces goes and what we want to see. So telling someone to show initiative and then changing it, a symptom of what

My daughter took my granddaughter to the bus stop yesterday. While waiting, one of the kids, about 6 or 7, who was there without supervision, climbed up to the top of the rock formation at the entrance to their subdivision, was dancing, yelling, and trying to jump from rock to rock.

***Here's another one for the list. You plan enough for two days when you're only going to be absent for one because you're afraid that if they don't keep them really busy they will get in trouble and make the sub think you have a horrible class.***

LOL! Yep! That one works more than one way!


You could also say you plan two days of work to keep them busy so they won't eat the sub alive!

I think this one crosses the line over to paranoia, but I can't say for sure whether it was paranoid or true. In the school that I just left (in which the administration is being sued by the teachers' union for bullying and intimidation practices) the teachers are convinced that the principal listens in on their classrooms through the telephones on their desks.
