I apologize if anyone is offended by this, but it is not meant in bad taste, but rather as my own frustration with the issue. I will attempt to be as rational and polite as possible.
Recently, a woman was fired for badmouthing her students and wishing death upon them via a Facebook status update. I don't think I need to go in depth on why this is wrong on so many levels, so I shall refrain.
However, what I will launch on a tirade about is that people like this are the ones instructing children we may know or care deeply about, let alone the next generation of children that we don't who will never deserve to have death wished upon them by another human. I honestly could care less if it was a bad/long/stressful/unpleasant/terrible day. If you are in a position of the public educator, you had better be there for a reason. Honestly, if you have gone through the education path solely because you want to have summer or major holiday vacations off then I don't want you teaching my future children. I want someone who is in it for their passion and drive to work with students, growing humans- children.
It is so frustrating to me that a position aimed toward shaping someone's life and belief of reality would either be in it for selfish gains or was unable to handle the stress that we all should know accompanies the job. I absolutely adore all of the children that I have ever worked with, no matter how difficult it may have been. Granted, we all have our moments where we reach our limits. When we do, for the love of all things please take it out in a non-destructive, non-violent, non-public way. Find a small amount of enjoyment in something and return to how things should be. If teaching is a miserable job then you may want to consider either not continuing down that path or reanalyzing life in a hurry.
I apologize for the rant, but I just thought I should get my voice out there, and I know others are thinking the same thing so I suppose I should be one to make it known to others.
