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.

There is a smattering of students in my grade level still testing. The grade next to us are testing until Thursday. Do you know how hard it is to keep my group of hooligans quiet on a testing day when they are no longer testing???? Threats, evil looks, walking next to them, taking future events away from are just jibber jabber to my crew. I just want it to be over so I don't have to be worried about my class getting me in trouble. Yes, I know its boring. Yes, I know you are bored. But, you still have to be quiet!!!
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.
