I worked in an after school program for about a year or so. I was pretty good at it and I liked it. Then we moved into a new location. I got a new boss. We did not see eye to eye.
For example, we had this one student who disrupted every class, picked fights, and would steal laptops. It was so bad that other students refused to show up because they didn't want to spend time with him. The kid was eventually expelled, but the situation was a huge headache. I left the next month, and never looked back.
But in truth, my experience was nothing compared to these teachers who quit:
In the kid's defense, he didn't actually kill anyone.
Money isn't everything, but it still matters.
This is like the opposite of what a good boss does.
No one had your back.
The system ruins everything.
Maybe you needed to teach him about percentages.
Please, parents, do the right the thing.
The kid won.
Think about how low the turnover rate would be if we paid teachers more.
This makes me question everything about testing.
Everything became meaningless.
This is a pre-quitting story.
Grown-ups are the worst.
So it wasn't just one reason.
What do you think your job is?
I'm honestly impressed.
I believe you.
This checks out.
Students aren't the only one who hate tests.
It's always someone else's fault.
