Unpopular Opinion: Teaching IS NOT a difficult job
If you use your time wisely and efficiently, you can basically have 6 hour work days through the week, free weekends, and 3 months vacation along with eventual tenure.

Use scantron tests and other forms where grading tests & homework are computerized. You can make your entire learning curriculum digital & reusable.

If kids don’t step up, fail them. If they do, pass them. Easy.

Next.

It is a difficult job, teachers are risking their lives going back to teach in person, we have kids coast to coast getting COVID in class and passing it onto teachers/administrators/staff and overwhelming hospitals nationwide. This is why we need online learning.

That part is easy. Try wading through beaurocratic red tape and crazy women all day long. Not to mention little shits and terrible parents who have nothing to do with their kids but also don’t think their kids do any wrong.

You obviously don't know any teachers.

What? Lol, no

Yep

In high school, maybe, but you would be a super shitty teacher

Doesn’t really work like that and you have be in line with the other teachers at your school teaching the same subject

No child left behind, buddy

All of this is based on you teaching a high school class. Good luck dealing with those shitheads with terrible parents who you now have to deal with but can’t punish thanks to those same helicopter parents threatening to sue the school

Know how I know you didn’t have to home school during COVID?

Hospitals in states where schools have opened up are beyond capacity. The healthcare workers in those hospitals are fighting on the front lines and risking their own health to save the endless number of kids, teachers and school staff that are flooding those hospitals.

Kids nationwide are being intubated and on the brink of death. Same with teachers. All so we could have in person learning during a pandemic.

In person learning is unsafe.

I wouldn't put up with that. And if that's the case, I bite my tongue until I get tenure. Then, I have power to kick a knucklehead kid out of my class.

Once I get tenure, I have power to not put up with any of that BS. Hell, with the current teacher shortage, I have leverage to make ultimatum with the school administration board.

I would win and I would win bigly, folks.

Edgy.

This take has definitely never been made here.

My job is to provide the education to the kid.

What they do with that education is up to them.

You get back what you put in, in life. Could be a great early lesson for some of these shitheads.

You definitely don’t have any teaching experience. All of your ideas wouldn’t work in elementary school. You have to take them and stay with them at lunch and there are curriculum meetings during planning periods. You can’t use scantrons either as they have to practice writing. You can’t grade science fair or group projects on a computer. Out of school suspension and failing students doesn’t happen anymore.

No you are doing the literal bare minimum. What you just described isn’t engaging at all

I would feel very sorry for any kid that was learning anything from someone like you.
