I wanted to tell my principal, but he's out this week on professional development. So someone needs to know about my unprofessionalism -- it's the least I deserve. I gave up on my 8th period class today. Totally just had them sit there. Didn't teach them anything. I can't keep them under control, and I can't justify me blowing hot air up anymore. So, they'll take the quiz tomorrow and fail it because I didn't prepare them. Same 'ol same ol'. Speaking of not teaching, I didn't do much better with my other classes either. I just really suck at this profession and am beginning to think there's not really any getting better. Matter of fact, I've just been getting worse. (Sorry for all the wasted AtoZ hours on me -- many of you gave me hours/weeks/months of your own work, and I've been too inadequate to even make that get me better.) Too bad this isn't like a normal profession where you realize you're not a good fit and go somewhere else to use your talents. It's crazy that if I quit, I quit on 90 other different lives and become a huge burder on the entire high school faculty. No pressure.
