I just wrote a long blog venting in the vaguest of terms about a situation at a place where I go during the day. But then I deleted it.
The thing that bothers me is parent’s opinions of teachers. Or anyone weighing in who is not a teacher. Until you have spent 6 hours a day with 60 teenagers and tried to get them to learn stuff they don’t want to……shut the hell up. Parents complain how they have a teenager, or even TWO teenagers and what a pain it is to get them to do stuff. Well try having 60 a day, and no real power to discipline them. Now I am lucky, I don’t have to deal with many problems with students, and if I did, you wouldn’t know about it on here. I am pretty lucky to be teaching where I am. Other than being overworked I am not going to complain.
I am not sure if I have ever mentioned where I work on here. I make a real attempt to not. On my Facebook account I don’t have any work info. I filled out that info like this…

No mention of employer or what I do.
