So today we were supposed to go on an Easter picnic. It was cancelled because of weather and I couldn't be happier. I always get really stressed before we go on a a trip. Almost to the point of an anxiety attack. I hate the stress. I hate the parents being there and in general they are NOT fun for me. When I say the I hate the parents I really don't but I always feel like I am under a microscope on a field trip. For the most part have a great relationships with my parents. ( always at least one you can't make happy) I have only ever had one problem on a field trip. A few years ago a parent threw me under the bus to another parent whose child did not get to go and told a huge lie about how I treated that child. I have never been so mad a parent in my life. This feeling of stressful field trips started from the beginning of my teaching career not just in the last few years. Anyway I am just super glad we didn't go on this picnic.
