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.

I have a friend who for two days in a row has walked out of the classroom for lunch without his lunchbox. I had a friend today who cried three times. I had a friend who farted in class. I had a friend last week who sneezed and farted at the same time. I had a friend last week who just discovered that holding your tongue while saying "ship" sounds just like the s-word. Really?
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.
