A blog from a thirty-something year old broke teacher trying to figure out why her fridge doesn't have food in it and why her life isn't fabulous like the Kardashian girls.

Just entered grades into the online gradebook and I can't believe the amounts of F's I see in it. Not just high F's, low one's like in the twenties. Why are the grades this miserable? Well, my friends apparently think I am joking when I say that they have to do assignments. Maybe they think I will forget about the work. I hope parents see the grades and have a fit. I hope they get mad. Then I hope they talk to their children. I am tired of being the only one in my class concerned about grades. The apathy this class has is sickening.
This is a place where I can rant about my life as a third grade teacher who continues to try to get her act together years after graduating college.
It is hard to find teaching blogs where the writer is not all rainbows and unicorns. Teaching is hard work and at times the kids are not fun and you don't feel like anything inspiring is happening in the classroom. It isn't that I don't love teaching, I can't imagine not doing it but I can't handle blogs where the writer never writes about the frustrations of teaching...or of the small paychecks that one receives on a monthly basis.
