Don’t Date a Girl Who Teaches

I stumbled across this sweet, darling blog post by another blogger entitled “Date a Girl Who Teaches”.  It lists examples of traits common to teachers and explains why they would be desirable to men. Here’s one:

It is easy enough to date a girl who teaches. She won’t want expensive gifts; you can buy storybook for her birthday, flowers for Teacher’s day, craft punchers for Christmas. You can buy her anything but please spare her with coffee mugs; she has lots from her students.

Positively saccharine.

I read the post, then immediately began writing my own version. Friends, I give you:

Don’t Date a Girl Who Teaches

Let’s say you meet a girl.  She’s cute, fun, and when you ask her what she does for a living, she replies, smiling, “I’m a teacher.” You probably jump to some positive conclusions about this girl.  She must be extremely patient and have the kindness of a Mother Theresa/lamb hybrid. You might even picture stock images of teachers, laughing as they point to vowels in a workbook, or smiling triumphantly as little Johnny correctly identifies Macedonia on a map of the world. You think about movies and TV shows you’ve seen where teachers like Hilary Swank, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Zooey Deschanel charm the socks off their students, overcome seemingly insurmountable odds, and manage to do it all while looking awesome. 
Well, I’m here to tell you to snap out of it. Here’s what you’re really in for.
She will speak to you as if you’re a student when you’re wrong in an argument (and probably if you’re right, too).
She’s highly trained in the art of keeping her cool in an argument, and one of those ways of keeping cool is delivering some of the most mind-blowingly annoying one-liners on the planet.  For example:
“Let me know when you’re ready to take responsibility for your actions.”
“Use your words.”
“Was that a good choice?”
These statements and questions, disguised as innocuous, even gentle hints, are designed specifically to make you want to set yourself on fire.
She will go hours without responding to your telecommunication attempts, often without explanation.
If you’re one of those people who expects to hear back when you text or call someone, you should probably steer clear of teachers. I know that personally, from about 10:30 PM to 5:30 PM the next day, it’s a complete crapshoot whether I will reply at all, let alone promptly.  
She has a near-perfect BS detector.
You will get away with nothing. 
You thought PMS was bad? Try PEGPS.
PEGPS stands for Pre End-of-Grading-Period Syndrome, the period of time before grades are due for report cards. Like PMS, PEGPS is characterized by extreme irritability, poor nutritional choices, and zombie-like fatigue. However, unlike PMS, PEGPS lasts for 2-3 WEEKS and happens four to six times per YEAR. 
And when PEGPS overlaps with PMS, you’d better get the hell out of Dodge, my friend.

She will bring home every strain of every airborne disease within a 25-mile radius.
Hope your immune system’s perfect.

She will compare all your problems/accomplishments to the papers she has to grade.
“Honey, I just qualified for the Boston Marathon!”
“Oh, please. I just graded 180 persuasive essays in one weekend.”
“That was my mom on the phone. They just put my childhood dog down.”
“You think that’s depressing? Look at these literary analyses they turned in. Five weeks on this unit and they still can’t come up with a decent thesis!”
She won’t be able to see you ever, especially during DEVOLSON.
And if she is available, she will only want to watch a mindless movie at home in perfect silence.
If you decide to take her anywhere directly after work, just know that it will seem to others as if you are escorting around a cardigan-wearing, homeless witch with unexplainable stray marker/pen marks from wrist to elbow.
Fellas, let me save you some trouble. If you’re in a bar and you see a woman in flats and a cardigan with an oversized shoulder tote asking about discounts, stay away.
Stay very far away.
Love,
Teach

P.S. I was kidding about everything.  You should totally date a teacher.  They’re pretty faboosh.

I told and explained everything to him and he assured me that he will help me and that i should not worry too much. I believed him and i did all that he asked me to do which i did and it work perfectly and my husband came back to me begging for forgiveness. I am so happy and excited now.

    8. Mr Win

      It’s no secret that a man’s ego has a powerful pull on him.

      In fact this hardwired need to impress and to WIN is so deeply embedded into the male mind…

      That nearly everything a man truly desires is based around this biological “drive” to prove, succeed and to win.

      It’s why so many men become workaholics, gym junkies or become obsessed with their hobbies.

      But what most women don’t know…

      …is how deeply this “drive” is connected to his love, desire, and attraction for the woman in his life.

      And I’m about to show you how you can “tap into” a man’s ege to refocus that same drive and gut level obsession…

      …on pleasing you, romancing you, and proving his love for you like you’re his sole purpose in life.

      Here’s how: ==> The “Go Ahead” Signal That Makes Him Obsessed With Winning Your Love

      Mr Gix

      P.S. When you tap into a man’s ego this way, you can cause him to literally become obsessed with proving his love for you. So please don’t use this on a man unless you are ready for something serious.

      Thanks again.

      This is why music teachers have trouble finding jobs. Why dies it "STILL" ring true? Do you see yourself as a lesser teacher because you teach music? I teach music and I'm pretty sure my job is even more stressful than what is described here. Be proud. You teach music!

    2. Morgan Soja

      False. Music teachers have way more JUSTIFICATION they need to do for their grades because most people don't understand that we actually teach content, not just "pretty singing/playing" If we're any good at our jobs, we're constantly grading. . . it just doesn't always take the form of graded papers (although it can, and often does, especially nowadays).

    3. Joel

      Why it still rings true? Because we generally don't have papers to grade.

      Why do we have trouble finding jobs? Because a school might have 25 classroom teachers for every one music teacher. Add to that the fact that administrators often see "well, she has played piano before" as the job requirement for the music teacher gig, and the competition goes up. After all, who wouldn't want a teaching job where all you do is have the kids sing and don't grade papers anyway?

      The issue is that many schools and teachers don't treat music teachers as real teachers. I have been in one district where the elementary level called art, music, and PE classes "the specials" and the teachers were obviously "the special teachers" where in fact, they are the specialists.

      It's easy to forget that music teachers (regardless of grade level):
      * Create our own curriculum every year
      * Are expected to do more than have the kids sing
      * Teach a variety of grade levels, often in the same class period
      * Are expected to take care of the sound system whenever there is an assembly
      * Prepare multiple lessons when we absent, expecting that the sub will not know anything about teach music
      * Present public performances throughout the year, often as entertainment while the "real teachers" get yet another break from teaching

      And we often do all of the above with only one class per week (less than 40 hours per year), as a result, much of the time is spent reteaching or catching up those who were absent or pulled out for tutorials because 150 hours of classtime instruction and after school a year plus after school tutorials just isn't enough.

      Why would music teachers feel like they are unappreciated? There are some possibilities…

      No worries, my football team is still in playoffs and since the band program exists solely to support the football team…I guess focusing on that Christmas concert in three weeks wasn't all that important anyway. One more round of Land of 1,000 Dances!

      Further, a 3 month break for summer? Break? Bahahahaha! 3 months? Bahahahaha! No. Teachers spend summers attending conventions, conferences, workshops, professional developments, training seminars, curriculum planning meetings, teaching summer school, taking college courses, and other time-consuming things. When it is all said and done, most teachers get about two weeks off, just like the rest of the world who works, too. Ya know?

    7. C Gunter

      In reply to Joel, the funny thing is that teachers dread assemblies and do not look at it as "free time"…as we watch the performance, we are thinking of how far behind we already were in covering the content required to pass benchmarks and state tests. It is weird to me when certain teachers start belittiing other teachers. I stay after school (unpaid) to help my students, but I don't complain about doing it. It sounds like your district has different standards than ours for teaching music. Our students go daily, and the classroom teacher assigns the grades, so that DOES stink that you have to do your own grade on the report cards.

      Teachers do love to complain. They deserve to do some complaining, but lets do some analysis:

      How many hours does a teacher work per year?

      The school year is about 180 days. Lets say the typical work day is about 10 hours.
      Plus 6 hours every Sunday.
      A week before the students start and a week after they leave.

      180*10+36*6+40*2=2096 hours per year

      How many hours does another professional work?
      52 weeks per year
      3 weeks vacation
      40 hours a week

      (52-3)*40=1960 hours

      The hours per year are roughly comparable.

      I know it is tough to be a lawyer, but you wouldn't be a lawyer if you never had a teacher there to support you and encourage you to be successful. Teachers are important because they are supposed to inspire their students to follow their dreams. There would be no lawyers if there were no teachers.

      Would-be-lawyers are completely capable of inspiring themselves. I may have had one inspiring teacher in my entire life. I'm not saying being a good teacher is easy, but there are a hell of a lot of useless teachers.

      Wow. "But you have the summers off" is the worst thing to say to a teacher. If you are complaining about how much better someone else's job is, why not give it a try.

    16. Melanie Henson

      Every work environment has it's major stressors: working in retail (having to work Holidays, low pay, working with the general public, etc) Higher profile jobs (ie, lawyers, doctors-much better pay, but stress of others lives in their hands in one way or another…) Obviously being under constant scrutiny of your every move has got to be stressful! So we ALL have certain major stresses in our professions!
      But on the subject of Teachers, I am very appreciative for every teacher no matter ehat they teach because I know the profound effect they can have on our children and just hope every child gets the opportunity to experience at least one that they connect with; it's an incredibly important relationship!
      I owe who I am today to a few teachers; onevof whom I still speak to almost every month since I had her in class…26 years ago!
      So to all of the teachers here: thank you & please remember that your job is VERY important & you are appreciated by many (even some that may never be able to find a way to tell you!

      y'all complainin about stress at work, try defendind this fucked up country. You act like a "group" of individuals is better than another "group". thats like tryin to argue about who's dad is "cooler". I Give respect to anyone who works hard. Teachers who work hard and enjoy what their doing can really make an impact on someones life, so they do deserve respect and a lot of it. If someone works at mcdonalds and has a smile on their face everytime you see them and does their job right, they deserve just as much respect because they're making the best of their situation and are putting forth effort.

      I am a teacher and I love my job. I work 2-4 additional hours a day + weekends writing reports and developing Individual Education Plans AFTER I spend 8 hours teaching. I have only 6 weeks off for summer because my district has an academic calendar with 2 & 3 week breaks during the year . While this may sound like an ideal schedule for some, I counted on working for the3 months in summer for the past decade to be able to pay for my medical bills that my crappy school district insurance does not cover.

      So many different and equally valid, yet completely biased and conflicting viewpoints have been expressed here.

      It's quite simple in how complex it is. Part of it is stress, and everyone deals with different stresses differently. Some of you have talked about the people they work with being more conniving than children, but I can guarantee you that there are those who just shut down around the constant high energy of children. And others of you are talking about how teachers have so much time off, but I work a consulting job that's both tied to the stock market (I'm working when it is open) and tax season (I work at least 80 hours a week between January 1st and March 15th), and yes it's a ton of work, but I enjoy what I do and it isn't too overbearing because of that fact.

      If you think teachers are being paid too much or too little, the way I see it is you have two options:

      1. You believe in the free market, so you know they are underpaid because so much of their market is government controlled, which is the antithesis of free market.
      2. You believe that government control is the most effective/efficient, so obviously those teachers for private schools are being over paid, and thus on average teachers are paid too much.

      Either way, that comes down to belief on capitalist systems which no one here is discussing.

      However, the larger point is that certain things come easier to some people, than other things come to other people. If you all want to keep speaking in generalities and then only providing anecdotal evidence… Have fun. If you want to have a viable discussion, my opinion is that, based on the current situation, the type of people that choose teaching as a career, are either more suited to it on average, than those that enter other professions, so on average it is less stressful/less difficult. Alternatively, we have a systemic/societal discountenance of education in general.

      I can provide my one piece of anecdotal evidence, that I don't remember a single teacher I had before college (I graduated last year with my undergrad), and I'm already making more than any teacher responding on this post (I was careful to write making and not earning.)

      I think this all has to do, more with the larger topic of how we've created such an emphasis on education that we require more education than is necessary for most positions, and there is such a cost premium on education, that the lower levels of education have lost their distinction.

      I will leave you all with my final thought. I believe we have lost the distinction between education and cognitive development. By that I mean, a fry cook at McDonald's, only really needs a middle school level of education, but they don't (these days) seem to develop the work ethic and responsibility to maintain a full-time job at that level until after high-school age. I don't think that that should be an indication that high-school is required to be a fry cook, but either that we've stop teaching our children responsibility at the rate that they can handle it (though we all recognize it as having been horrible, girls use to start raising large families at the age of twelve, with the 'boy' of the household was 16, we don't expect as much out of our kids, as quickly as, we use to.) Or that we keep telling our children that they're all special and that they can all do whatever they want, because that is simply not true. Moreover, as politically incorrect as it is, not everyone can be the best, half of people will below average. When we stop trying to convince the bottom (don't take this as class warfare, when I say bottom I mean the bottom intelligence-wise, not sub class based on parental success. Studies have shown that intelligence is cyclical, as in, the most intelligent, tend to come from the least intelligent parents (Forrest Gump for a fictional example)), that they can be above their station, our lower level education, and thus educators, will be more properly valued. Until the large number of different systemic issues are addressed, all this back and forth is purely academic, and not very useful academic at that.

      I'm a teacher in my 9th year. I have thought seriously about leaving the profession this year due to the stress of my job (more & higher expectations being placed on me, but less time available to complete them) all the while trying to be a good Mother and Wife. I love my family and they deserve a good mother and wife, not a stressed, exhausted, on-the-verge-of a mental breakdown, cardigan wearing, homeless-looking witch! But everytime I start to fantasize about driving to a work place in the morning where I would sit behind a desk, sip coffee, chat casually with coworkers, complete paperwork, stare at a computer monitor, attend meetings with adults (not screaming, cussing, fighting, disrespecting kids)… I get pulled back to the reason I chose this crazy path- I really enjoy teaching kids. I really enjoy watching them achieve new goals. I love when they finally learn to work together in small groups and create something really great! I get to have some kids for 3 years. It's quite amazing how much they grow up from 6th to 8th grade. They come in like little kids and leave me as mini-people with mature ideas, expanded vocabulary. I also worry that if I left teaching, it would be one less teacher that really cares about the kids yet at the same time who doesn't give a f*** about the Department of Education or their latest update on curriculum or their stupid f****** test. I hate testing and I hate what it's doing to our kids. So, I teach because I am passionate about teaching. I just try not to forget about my own family from time to time. I don't think teachers have a "harder" job than everyone else, but I do think that we have a pretty incredible job. By the time I retire I will have taught thousands and thousands of kids. I see former students in the store and they're all grown up and so excited to see me! Kids I barely remember are excited to see me and tell me that they loved my class and learned so much.I kind of feel sorry for anyone that has never had the opportunity to even volunteer with kids. They are really missing out. Especially that fry cook guy above me. He cant remember his teachers before college?! Did he have a brain injury in high school? How will he remember what he learned in college?! I remember all my teachers, they inspired me to do so many great things. Even to this day, I think to myself, "What would Mr. ______ think if I…" My best teachers shaped who I AM! Poor fry cook guy. I'm sorry you had mediocre teachers before college and I'm sorry about your brain injury that won't allow you to remember your teachers. They would be a little sad if they knew that, especially after the hours they spent grading your papers, teaching you how to form sentences into long passages like your "fry cook" story above. You should thank your 2nd and 3rd grade teachers (whomever they were) for teaching you to write so that you could fully communicate your fry cook story. Seriously.

      What's distressing is the lack of respect shown here for each others' work and work places. Each person deals with a high level of stress in their work place. Parents, students, principals, co-workers, bosses, customers… In the end, all the careers mentioned in this post are necessary to the overall success of our society; so I will not begrudge anyone their right to complain about what they have to go through. However, I would expect that adults could have a discussion with each other without stooping to insults, profanity, and "my job is harder than your job" kinds of comments. It's the state of this country, I guess; with such hard divisions, why would we not create divisions of our own?

      So very disheartening…

      Wow, what a bitter little person you are. Did the teacher give you a detention because you assed around and wouldn't pay attention?? Grow up and show a little respect. Everybody is a spoke in the wheel and nobody is bashing your line of work. I just hope you don't pass your cynicism on to your kids. You're a sad unit.

      bottom line… I could have easily gotten the same teaching job that any of you (who are complaining) have whereas, 0-5% chance any of you could have even interviewed for mine… quit whining, your job is hard only because your peers are in puberty, have any sort of wit and you will have to problems

      My fiance is a teacher. I know lots of them (her colleagues.) Many of them are outstanding. Some of them are mediocre and some are terrible. The good ones are grossly underpaid for the effort they put in and the positive impact they have. The mediocre to bad ones are grossly overpaid. Thank union pay scales for that.

      I agree that people should not attack others about how "hard" their job is. If you have not done it, you have no idea. Besides, people choose what they do in life. If you wanted the "perks" of someone elses job, you should have chosen that job. I am a music teacher, and I work very hard. I also work throughout the summer at another job (let's face it… none of us are rich) AND prepare for the next school year. With that being said, I enjoy my job, and that is why I chose to do it. I I become unhappy with it, I will choose something else. It's MY choice, so enough with the "I work harder than you" stuff.

      I respect the teaching profession, I know for a fact I couldn't do it. I would not have the tolerance or the patients for incongruous children. I am a Student Nurse (Mental Health) and have to deal with challenging situations every day, as well as long shifts and a fair bit of abuse. I take that over teaching any day as I am very passionate about my chosen career and enjoy myself while I work. As I said though, not tolerance for for incongruity in that setting.

      I haveworked on an assembly line as a machinist. I have been a power plant chemist. I have loaded sewing machine trucks, I have been an AC repair assistant. I have taught field biology, invertebrate biology laboratories and physiology labs. I have spent 20 years as a medical technician doing radioactive immunoassay and cancer testing. I have also taught 5th and 6th grade science for the last14 years. It is the hardest, most exhausting and stressful job I have ever had. It is also the best most rewarding job(not monetarily but in satisfaction) I've ever done. I love teaching. I wish I had come to it many years earlier but it took me a while to find my niche. I will retire this year with the feeling that I have accomplished more positive effects on the world than I did in all my earlier careers.

      Play nice children. Everyone's job/career can be stressful, and difficult at times. We all feel underappreciated for the work we do a majority of the time, and yes, I am a teacher. Most every career path has people/ groups who demonize it for one reason or another. Many teachers who do have Master's degrees are underpaid if you look at the average someone is supposed to make with that degree. However, we all choose our careers for a reason. If you want to make a lot of money, then don't choose to be a teacher. We're supposed to be in it for the kids; to inspire them to be the best they can be. I've always understood that I'd be underpaid. Is it ok? Not really, but that's life, and life sucks, and isn't fair sometimes. We just really need to start respecting each other's professions as a whole. We choose what we choose, because despite all of the stress, and political bs, we love it. If you don't love your job or career path, then change it or you may never be happy. You only live once; make it count! 🙂

      Since you can all write and you can all read, you need to thank a teacher. I may be a teacher, but I am incredibly grateful to my teachers who guided me into my adulthood and gave me the confidence to go after what I wanted in the world. What do I make? I make a difference. I make a difference to the tough boy who comes to school everyday without having the love of a mother, I make a difference to the child who doesn't get a hello, good morning, I make a difference to the child I cheer and push forward because nobody else in the world notices, I make a difference to the child who has a loving home because I validate that the world is good, I make a difference to the child who needs to cry because losing a parent or a sibling at this age is not right, I make a difference because intelligence comes in many forms and I understand that… what do you make? How does your career choice impact our youth and help them become living, caring members of our society? You may have a wonderful paying job, you may not, you may not want to pay taxes to our politicians/counties/states for 'school taxes', but know the differences we make could never be calculated into a sum. I choose to teach, not to be rich (with my years of schooling I could be a doctor or a lawyer), but to make a difference and to give back to a community that had so much love and faith in me when I was just a poor little child looking for direction.

      I'm a preschool teacher, and let me tell you…..after a 10 hour day with a classroom full of children who are disrespectful, not all of them are potty trained, some poop in their pants just because they think it's funny when we have to change them, who get into fist fights, bust their heads open on the jungle gym, throw food all over the place, sneeze and cough all over me and only getting paid 7.50 an hour with no benefits, it doesn't take much to set me off! LOL

      Now what saddens me, is the lack of general respect people around this country and on this board seem to have for teachers. It's pitiful, it really is. btw, most school districts don't even give teachers a decent allowance for supplies and tools in their classroom – it comes out of OUR OWN pockets. ONE complaint from a parent, for the stupidest thing, can cost us our career that we have worked so long and hard for. And yes, teaching is a profession. It is not just a 'job'. There IS a difference between a profession, and a job. Try looking it up. And those of us who have to take out student loans to pay for our education to be able to teach YOUR children what they need to be able to function in society most of the time never come out from under that debt. NEVER.

      During my student teaching, I helped coach a long distance running program. Since we ran in the neighborhood the school was located, sometimes we encountered other students, too. One time, we passed by a couple of high school students playing in a nearby basketball court, and the one boy was cursing like a sailor (while the others just kept playing), as soon as I heard it, I panted out (while running), "Watch your language!" Since I look young (and even less so when in workout attire) he responded, "Girl, you can't tell me what to do!" I didn't realize one of my students was running behind me and said, "That's my teacher! You can't talk to her like that!" It was great.

      I'm a math teacher. I can spell, and I know the difference between their, there, and they're. If someone teaches math, that does not mean that they can't spell or use correct grammar. I'm pretty sure we all took the same basic classes in college. English was required; therefore, we all should know how to use grammar properly. Regardless of whether they know how to use the correct grammar or simply made a mistake, which is entirely possible, math teachers don't teach math because they can't spell or do grammar well. I actually wanted to become an English teacher, but I realized that finding a job in the math department would be much easier. I did well in both subjects and am able to explain the math well, so I chose that subject. Have a grand day!

      This is the work my own half grown children do for me-my husband has helped me build puppet theatres,lecterns and bookshelves, decorate for proms, and load and unload boxes at the end and beginning of every year for twenty-five years now. It's family affair!!

    Loved this article. It is quite accurate. I also have teacher ears as I hear everything whether I was supposed to or not. I retired three years ago after teaching English for 30 years. I loved it and I do miss it, especially the interaction with my juniors. Teachers share a special bond. I am still amazed when I am in a group of people and the teachers always find each other.

    As a male teacher the other issue with dating a teacher, if you want to have kids with that teacher and like certain names you may not have the ability to use them if we've had a student we couldn't stand with that name. There are certain names that my kids will never have because I had an annoying student with that name.

      This! So much! I've told my husband if we don't have kids soon we'll have to make up some kind of weird name, because I'll be out of choices that don't make me cringe. He does not understand how serious I am about this.

    Guys, avoid school teachers like the plague. Here's just a few more reasons:

    1) Teachers are always on the lookout for guys who make lots of money and it is all they want.
    2) You clock-out and leave work at the office or factory, they can't leave the classroom at school.
    3) You'll tire of hearing the last question they have before you go anywhere or do anything: "Do you need to go to the restroom?"
    4) Bossy and manipulative… because that is how they must behave in the classroom.
    5) Never-ending complaints regarding how little they are paid and all the work they must do.
    6) You're constantly being graded on the assignments they bestow upon you.
    7) The "God complex"

      Oh, please. You know not of what you speak, sir. I am a teacher and the only one that applies is #2. I'd rather not have to bring home things for planning and such, but it's part of the job. Just as you may have stories to tell from the office, we have stories-of our kids (students-but always my kids) and colleagues. And then there are always those students you worry about and try to think of ways to help them. But you'd better believe I make time for my life.

I've been teaching for 14 years and married equally as long, so my hubby knows there are occupational hazards associated with being a teacher (and with being married to one), but now he's got it even worse as I am now the school librarian, so he has to tolerate constantly being "shooshed" and getting scolded for not keeping things in alphabetical order…lol 🙂

    I was laughing… that is until I read the comments. Coming from a teacher, there is nothing more annoying than watching fellow teachers try to justify themselves using the typical "my job is so hard" argument. Again, I am a teacher, so hear me out. I have done other things prior to becoming a teacher, and it is true… teaching is the hardest thing I have ever done. It is physically, mentally, and emotionally exhausting. The general public has no idea how hard we work. From the outside looking in, it does seem like a pretty sweet gig. I think what annoys me about the endless teacher griping is that we forget that we should LOVE what we do. If you are a teacher who hates the pay, the stress, the constant to-do lists, and the way we are perceived by the public, I highly suggest you find a new job. As far as the pay goes, I am not rich, but I certainly couldn't find any other job that would satisfy me the way this one does. I also could never find a job that would give me 14 weeks off a year. Please spare me the, "I work 12 weeks out of those 14!" argument. We do spend that time planning for the upcoming year and honing our craft, but I love that part of my job. I also know that we do not work near as hard during that time off as we do when students are around. Moving on to the perception from the public. Unless these people quit their current profession and walk a year in our shoes, they will never get it. Suck it up and move on. No amount of complaining or explaining is going to change that perception. I think we need to look at our own words and really look at how we are fueling the fires between teachers and non-teachers. I know how difficult it is to be a teacher, but I also know how joyous it truly is. Let us focus on the positive and remember why we do what we do.

      Thank you. I taught for several years and had a career before teaching and after. I get so frustrated by the sense of entitlement some teachers have. I loved teaching and hope to go back to it. The pay, the benefits and the time off are three things I won't find in most jobs. I think it takes a teacher leaving education to see what it's like for everyone else. My friend is saving $1000 per month in benefits by leaving the business world and going into education. He will work less and make more, all things considered. Plus he is in a fulfilling career, unlike before. Grass is greener for some…

      I love my job, too. Teaching is extremely difficult and stressful, but it is my calling from God. I can't imagine me in any other vocation. I love my summers off. I still love that summer has never lost its childhood magic for me. But people need to remember that it is not a VACATION in its true sense, because we are not paid for it. We only get paid for 10 months of work.

    unless you work teaching children, you will never understand the joys and hardships. as a teacher you sometimes you feel more like a referee, nurse, judge, investigator, baby sitter, mother and other jobs as the children attending public schools are becoming more and more needy.

Soooooo many have to take a good hearted joke and twist it into yet another debate of who works harder and who has bigger balls. Whats this world coming too. Great joke.

I want a husband, not another student! 🙂

    I taught middle school, high school and college PE. The pay sucked at all 3! But hell it was PE and a blast. One of my college friends and I got hired for our first ever teaching jobs at the same middle school. She always complained about all the work she took home. I just laughed and told her she should have been a PE teacher. I had little extra work. Then she visited my class of 43 7th graders playing street hockey. She said she would stop complaining haha! Every teacher fits a different role. Some of us can command 40-50 students and that's where our work is done others deal with 20-30 and have homework. Everyone's different. On a side note, I was laid off in 2010. I started my own business and make my teaching salary every 10 weeks. Teaching was easy by comparison and way more time off.

Teachers – educators – we have to have a sense of humour to make it through this thing we call a career. And yes to all the grammar police lurking about, I know I misspelled "humour" – I am married to a Canadian. 🙂

    I'm currently a learning and support teacher and it is easier than having a class of 30. I love my job but find that by Friday afternoon I'm so exhausted that I can barely stay awake. We are seen as the problem solvers so between team teaching, having a caseload of students that we need to write IEP's for, testing, reporting, co-ordinating national testing at our school, organising disability provisions for state exams, monitoring out of home care students and managing students who are having a melt down, need a pen or a tissue we also support class teachers who have students mucking up, assist casuals who don't know the students, fix technology issues and solve class placement and ESL dilemmas just to name a few of the things that we do.

    I'm just thankful for holidays and for a principal who tells us to go home and not think about school for awhile (that I get paid for in Australia) as they allow me recuperate mentally and physically, spend quality time with my husband and children and to sort all the things that simply don't fit into the term time schedule! By the end of my holidays I'm usually well and truly ready to go back to work with enthusiasm and to see 'my' kids.

    The article is great!! I am not a teacher, but I currently date a Kindergarten teacher. Although the constant struggle of listening to somebody complain as though they are the only industry/field in the Milky Way that works full time, the benefits of dating a teacher are great. Specifically during this time of year, the holidays, when parents send all kinds of goodies in to the teacher. Since she doesn't want to eat ALL of the sugary goodness that parents send in, I live high of the holiday hog with cookies, candies and other delicious treats. I LOVE IT! Teachers work very hard, have to deal with overly sensitive and stubborn parents that refuse to believe Sally/Johnny is anything but a Rhodes Scholar and any professional that says otherwise is just proof that the education system is flawed. I love my teacher! But seriously, you teachers do get three months off. Please spare the rest of us 12-monthers the, "We work on our classrooms, go to conferences, prepare for the next year, etc" sob story. I'm sure that "preparation" is sitting by the pool sipping lemonade and scrolling through Pintrest for clever classroom ideas.

    As somebody who has had other jobs before becoming a teacher, I can say that different jobs have different stresses. This does not mean I think being a teacher is more stressful, but that maybe is a type of stress that someone else feels. Not only is it stressful because you have to make sure you are trying to get all the paperwork done. Teaching also involves being stressed about 25-30 children making progress academically, socially and emotionally, whilst dealing with the continuous "Miss he hit me", " Miss she was nasty to me."
    Also when you're talking about holidays, this is not just for the teachers. This is also for the children too. For anybody who has trained in a job. Imagine training continuously for 13 years as an adult always learning new skills with only 4 weeks holidays. The children need their school holidays for a rest. My school is almost at the end of a 9 and a half week half-term and our children are exhausted.
    I am luckily enough to enjoy my job, no matter how stressful it can be, it can also be extremely rewarding. I hope others as are as lucky as me to enjoy ttheir work no matter what it is and that I can inspire the children I teach to do the same.

    I love the article, made me laugh-but then I began reading the posts, and they made me well-upset. As a teacher, some days are difficult, but I love every minute of it-and the comments about summer, sure, we get a break from our students, but not from our careers…you don't want dumb people teaching your kids-so we continue to learn! And for the person who mentioned that they have to worry about "backstabbing," you chose your profession. Just as teachers chose theirs, where we are in danger of school shootings, violence, and are trained to defend not just ourselves, but our students from those who are committed to harming our kids…we (teachers) are not self centered as you would like to believe…and would lay down our lives to protect your kids, and too many teachers have done just that! Please-next time you want to criticize a profession-remember we do more than you think, just as I am sure you do more that we think…

      I know many teachers. I don't know any who spend their summers learning. They spend their summers playing video games, or hanging out with their kids, or catching up on hobbies, or asking me why I can't get off work to go on vacation with them. 😉 Teachers work hard, but I'm seriously raising my eyebrow at this claim that summer vacay isn't vacation, when it IS for every single teacher I know.

      You know a select few that must not need to work in the summer to supplement their income.

    Great article! I just wanted to throw in my opinion on the "teachers are hardworking" versus "they have it easy" argument. I used to think that it was ridiculous for teachers to complain about their jobs – I mean, they get paid relatively well, they get summers off, and they get a lot of benefits, right?

    That was until I became a teacher in Taiwan. Granted I was an ESL Teacher, which is different, but it's hard as HELL to teach. I love kids, but you have to be at a 100% energy level all of the time. If you aren't, or if you don't have classroom management skills, or if you don't have a lesson planned to occupy the students' attention at all time (and contingency plans), then the students will realize and take advantage of you or become bored. I would say that one hour of teaching is the equivalent to three hours of working an office job, in terms of output.

    Also, compared to the hours that teachers put in planning lessons, grading homework, and preparing tests, I would say that they are not paid well. It might be as much as the government can give them, but it's probably not fair. There are many rewarding things about teaching, but I don't think lax schedules or high wages are among those things.

    Props to all teachers! I value your work and energy, and I'm impressed with how hard you work and how much you care!

      Also, the three months off would be great, but I don't think they get paid for it. They can just choose to stretch out their 9 month salary to 12 months.

    Myths About Teaching:
    "Three Months Off"–I get about 6 weeks if I'm lucky, and it's full of graduate classes and professional development and curriculum creation.

    "Tenure" and "Union Protection"–in many states, including Arizona, teachers have lost tenure under state law and the union is a joke.

    "Music Doesn't Count"–in my state, there are music standards that must be taught and tested via a computer based pre- and post-test.

    "The Average Teacher Makes $60,000 a Year"–I have no idea where these people are getting their numbers, but out of the 500 or so teachers I know very very well, only 2 or 3 are at that level, and they've been teaching for 30 years. The rest of us hover between 30k and 40k for about 180 hours of work per week.

    So From the Daughter of a Teacher:
    Mom started every day with us kids getting us off to school and herself there in time to meet the bus which some days was just a fun ride. Then she had class with all the rest of your kids. She would drive herself trying to reach little Joe or maybe Sue would do better with this. And then she'd stay after school to do the set up for the next day, after school meetings, tutoring or who knows what else. Then she came home but she wasn't ours yet as she was still tired from dealing with other people's children's drama. So she might not be out of that stressed mindset yet. But to quote others "…but there were mouths to feed" so after a quick meal would she be ours yet? No. Now there were after school meetings, the school play, and the endless correcting. The first thing a child of a teacher learns is how to correct, because it is parent time and it might mean getting the damn pile of your parent's paperwork finished for once in time for you to have some time with them. So while all of you gripe about how much a teacher is paid, what days they have off, what your child learns or doesn't let me tell you what I saw over my mother's career: 1) a woman who studied hard to figure out new ways to reach your kids 2) a woman who spent her summer using her kids as guinea pigs to test classroom content for your kids 3) a person who brought your kids into our home: their work , their troubles, and their families issues and tried to wade through it all and make it work. 4) a person who taught extra lessons on the side to help our family make our bills 5) So how many of you professionals have to bring in your kids to help set up classrooms, before school year prep, end of year tear down, it all passed in a blur each year of stapling, filing, taping, running errands (oh wait you have paid aids the same ones cut from last years school budget) 6) shall I go on …and before you think I hate teachers I followed the family tradition and taught Special Needs until the recent changes drove me to reassess America's commitment to education. If you all in John Q Public all think teaching is so easy and teachers are so well paid for this job take my place as I have quit. If parents won't read to their kids ( I don't care if they are special), if they won't teach them public manners (no its not cute its rude), or if parents won't respect the education processes make your kids responsible for their education reading,homework and learning (yes learning not goofing off) then they can take my place and teach in a school. f the elected officials think it's so easy take my place, with less and less budget , with more and more education, with children less prepared to enter school, with kids needing more accommodations and no funds, and yet another politician talking endlessly when if he really wanted to help he (or she ) would leave their office and be the aide a classroom needs , or the extra hand in a school system with too many kids per teacher. If you have the solution take my place because I can't do it anymore when in the past three years I have stood between fighting kid, kids out to hurt each others. I been kicked, punched, scratched, hit, to the point of permanent damage and still I'd have stayed and tried to make it work had I made my bills but when I found out I can make more working and the job description does not include "handle being assaulted weekly" yeah I quit. When they asked me in my interview how will you handle the stress of a deadline I did not ask them how do you handle the stress of two fighting teens both twice your size but answered politely.

    Hey, buddy…as a teacher "with a near perfect bs meter", let me say that neither I nor any other intelligent reader is going to be fooled into thinking that a "just kidding" at the end undoes all of the degredation in your actual piece of writing. Being a teacher is awesome…sorry you didn't make the cut…you apparently can't even get one to date you. In the event that you once again set your sights high and try, here are a few tips…if you don't want her to speak to you like you are her student, don't act like one of her students. Teachers who plan well rarely have metldowns, but a little support during a stressful time would be both unselfish and helpful, if you can manage it. We don't use our phones during the school day because our students can't use them and we are supposed to be modelling the kind of behavior we expect from them. We talk about our jobs and compare them to your significant life events because, to us, they are just as important. Teaching isn't something you do, it's a way of life. We do not mean to diminish your accomplishments/ hardships, we are just forever trying to find points of comparison to explain to people what we do and how important it is to us. We appreciate silence at home because, during work hours, students are calling our names constantly (usually more than one student at a time!)…however, being appreciated and needed while we're at work is very rewarding and we wouldn't trade it for the world. Sorry you can't experience it in whatever job you have. I hope you get past this insecure phase in your life where you feel like you have to put down women who are teachers to feel better about not being good enough to date them…and I hope the next time you choose to air negative feelings online, you do so in a less passive-aggressive way. This post would have been offensive no matter what, but the "just kidding" at the end, as if anyone will excuse what you wrote because of that one line, is ridiculous. You are no better than a person who chooses to confront someone via text rather than in person, and then places a smiley face after insults, as if that makes everything ok. To all of the female teachers out there, you are FABULOUS. The only importan piece of information to take from all of this is, when you're looking for a date, is steer clear of this guy.

    Article was funny but comments were sad. So much frustration with jobs. I'm not a teacher but my friend is and I know how much work it is. However, someone always has it worse. I'm a veteran and I thought it was rough when I was deployed, then I got out and became a mom to 2 boys with special needs and I think that's even harder. Then I see the homeless on the street and I think they have it the worst. Just my perspective.

    So this is a very intriguing and amusing article! I'd like to see if there's one for women about why not to date a male teacher, or maybe why they should. I say this as a man having taught for 5 years and on top of that, having taught k-12 for 2 of those years (it was only 2 years I taught k-12 and no, I wasn't a PE/gym or art teacher).

    I have however learned that while I do admire and like various qualities in women that teach, ultimately it's REALLY hard to date them because they often have the schedule of a grandma where they're in bed at 8:30 or 9 and up at the crack of dawn, only to come home exhausted and not want to do much. Granted I can relate to this in ways, though I never was in bed at 8:30 (that'd take a miracle to happen, and another miracle for me to sleep through the night if asleep that early!!) or up at 5am.

    So I don't know, women teachers are great women, but hard to date!

    After 36 years teaching primary grades I have retired. Your post made me laugh at so many points that are so true. When I remarried 11 years ago my husband came to realize that there were 3 times in the year he had to fend for himself – wish I could have given that term -PEGPS! Yes we work hard, yes our work never is ever finished – there's always something to be done. But I can not imagine any other job I would have loved as much. And I miss it. even the grading and reports and the parents. Just not the politics. Fabulous post.

    I think that one thing that sucks about teaching is that an administrator can force a bunch of pedagogical bullshit on you that conflicts with your style of teaching. At least in business, if a boss decides a company needs to run differently, success or failure in the market will prove if that decision works. Whereas in education, the standards of evaluating success are so skewed that an administrator can get away with doing anything as long as it is "innovative." This leads to a lot of novelty for its own sake. This leads to two types of teachers: those who are gullible enough to try anything with enthusiasm, and those cynical enough to simply go through the motions and not care.
    It also seems like the teachers I know have trouble realizing that there is a world outside of their classroom, and that most adults don't want to hear about what children did all day.

    I am proud to say that I'm dating a teacher or should I say an "e-learning trainer" a future public school teacher. 🙂 She gets irritated easily, mood swings, and if you want to talk with her (if irritated) she will just reply with, NO, YES, I DON'T KNOW, MAYBE, OK, HMMM, NOTHING, FINE, and worse after you ask a long question she will just say YUP. But I love her and maybe that's girl's nature. That is what matter most. 🙂

    Holy cow, it's FUNNY, not OFFENSIVE! Geez, don't take it so personal. Ps, I'm a teacher and I bust my booty all year long so I may enjoy my wonderful, work-free summer. If you're in the profession, you understand the stressors. If not, such as myself looking at every other job on earth, you can't know first hand so please don't make ignorant assumptions or hurtful comments based upon said assumptions.

    I was told once. "Those that can… do. Those that can't… teach." I understand this statement now as an adult. And it mostly holds true. However, I also know first-hand how a good teacher of a subject can make all the difference in the world in you understanding it the first time it's introduced to you.

    I am a teacher. I think the reason that many teachers complain about their jobs is because we care so much. We are unable to let the frustrations go at the end of the day because we genuinely want the best for our students. Our hearts go to work with us and they come home with us. Teaching is in the heart. There is nothing more frustrating than being unable to do what is in a child's best interest because of political agendas at the district/county/state/federal level.

    A few addendums:
    *You will be asked to help with grading (and other odds-and-ends of teaching.)
    *If he/she spends any social time with colleagues, they will not talk about anything except work, and by work I mean students. If you ever go to a teacher party, be prepared to spend hours listening to people talk about other people's children.
    *The job is like a meat-grinder on the soul. However, suggestions that they find another career will not be given a moment's consideration. Best to have other means of helping prepared.

    I have a reason that has less to do with me personally and more to do with the over all problem of (public school, at least) teachers in general: they are part of the worst, most evil union in America. And that's saying something. They care squat about the kids and everything about their own selfish interests, and protecting the most incompetent, criminal and stupid members of their union. They abhor any solution to the terrible state of public schools that jeopardizes their own selfish self-interest (vouchers, charter schools etc.). The kids would be better served by firing them all and contracting with private industry to run schools, which they do more efficiently and with greater service to the kids. An honest person would have to point this out to the union hacks we have running our schools these days, which would probably cause friction in the relationship. I wouldn't date a drug pusher, pedophile or a pimp either, they are also harmful to kids' welfare. It all goes together.

    I am married to a teacher, and this is spot on. After 15 years, I have learned to just accept these things as the status quo. I would not change a thing.

    Some people I know claimed the original post was supposed to be satire. I don't think so. I really think it was a straight up article about why teachers are awesome.

    I've been a teacher – I loved teaching – but now I'm in Corporate America and I gotta say – teaching was not 'the hardest job in the world' to me – I'd go back to teaching in a second if I could….

    A few points –
    1) Did I bring home work as a teacher? ALL THE TIME. Do I bring work home now as a paper pusher? ALL THE TIME. No difference.
    2) 'It's more work to stay home sick as a teacher than it is to go to work sick."…..same is true for paper pushers…only difference? As a paper pusher – I STILL get phone calls from work on my sick days….I don't think a sub ever called my cell phone to complain about a student when I was a teacher…
    3) 'Three months vacation as a teacher' – yes, granted — it wasn't a real 'three months' — more like 2 or even 1 1/2 — but I didn't spend the majority of my summers at conventions, etc….why? Well – it wasn't because I wasn't a good teacher – but I didn't have the $$ it took to go to said conventions nor did the district allow it….you can't squeeze blood from a stone….so what did I do instead? Well….summer vacation! —- vacation in Corporate America — there really is no such thing. Each day I have had 'vacation' this year — I've still fielded phone calls, emails, via a smartphone…the only time I've escaped the constant push is by declaring 'I don't have cell service'….then spent the next days off biting my nails, afraid of what hell awaits when I go back in to work.
    4) The salary, of course! Teachers get paid peanuts compared to big business workers, right?! Hahaha…yeah….I'm being paid less now than what I would have been paid as a teacher — only with more debt from a Master's degree that's gotten me nowhere….(yes — I was very wrong to have quit teaching to go back for an MBA that I was in the middle of when our markets crashed in '08)….further — those bonuses and promotions big business gets each year? Yeah, no. No scheduled pay increase like teachers…if the company doesn't 'perform', I get nothing….

    I still thought this was a funny blog and still think like a teacher in many ways but don't want teachers to get this 'grass is always greener, woe is me for the job I took' mentality — you have a good job, you do a great service — but it's not like everyone else is living the life of Riley and you are the martyrs of society….

    I told folks when I quit teaching — 'I don't want the majority of my conversations to take place between myself and a 7 year old for the rest of my career.'……now I tell folks, — 'I don't want the majority of my conversations to take place between myself and a grown adult who ACTS like a 7 year old for the rest of my career." 🙂

    Absolutely hilarious! Although not married to a teacher, I was raised by two parents who both taught. The first one, YES! I cannot even begin to count the times that happened!…and still does, even after they have been retired for over 10 years!

    I can't believe that there is a hater in the comments. The amazing thing is that he feels so justified. Apparently he's never heard about the greener grass syndrome. With very little effort, I can deduce three things about him: 1) He's not very good at whatever it is he does. 2) He is not well liked by anyone including himself and 3) He is a paper tiger that needs to say such things to inflate his already abysmal self esteem. I fire people like him all the time (no, I'm not a teacher…I'm married to one) and do it with a perverse sense of enjoyment.

    Teachers work 9-3 with an hour for lunch and another hour break, for 38 weeks per year. Add in Professional Development (whatever the hell that is) Days, Sick Days, and Snow Days and they're barely doing 1/3 of a full-time job. And for this they get 3X the median income when you factor in their generous benefits package. And after doing this for 12 years, they graduate their students off into the world completely illiterate. They are incompetent with an appalling sense of entitlement for still more. And after a year-long "Master's Degree" steeped in Derrida & Foucault, they are also bat-shit crazy, which is why they keep having relationships with their underage students since adult males have learned through experience to give them a wide-berth. That's why you don't date a teacher.

      You have your facts wrong – I am a teacher and work 6:30 to 3:30 with no lunch break. I have students from 7 am until 2:45. I don't get a planning period during the time I have students. I am a special education teacher and don't get a break at all until my kids go home for the day. Occasionally I can talk someone into watching them while I go to the bathroom. My planning and research time is spent at home. My heart is wrapped up in these children and I have a hard time letting the job go during evenings and breaks. I am not complaining, just stating the way it is. Are there benefits to teaching – yes, and they are considerable. Are there downfalls? Yes, and they are also considerable. Some days I think it would be nice to have a low stress job that would let me come home each day and leave work at work. Then again, it may be in my personality to bring home work no matter where I am. My most enjoyable job was a summer job (at the age of 41) in retail. It was fun while I was there and I could let it go when I went home. Unfortunately it didn't pay much at all. As to teacher's pay – it varies greatly depending on where you are located. I am in a state where the pay starts at around $30,000. $32,000 if you have your Master's degree. Plus, we have no unions – not that I want one, I despise unions. We do have increases each year, but they are minimal. Regarding the few cases of relations with underage students over the years – that is absolutely unforgivable and I can't imagine what kind of person would do that. It is disgusting. The few have gotten the publicity and that makes the rest of us look bad. I believe that most teachers would be revolted by the thought of having a relationship with one of their students. BTW, you are partially right – most of us are bat-shit crazy – but in a good way -it comes with the territory.

    But all I want to is art. I like to draw, think and create. Well okay, do you need to know how to read? What about history and the purpose and or meaning for creating art? How does the art reflect a culture, the people’s value system, their trade, market or a society? Does geography and natural resources have anything to do with what is created? Will your ideas be influenced by the government you live in or the policies and law of the land that is enforced? Are you a good speaker? Can you sell an idea? Are there other skills you will need to acquire? Can defend your ideas? Is philosophy, religion important? Will you paint, sculpt, weave, print, or take on all the new technology? Think about the Picasso’s Guernica, Michelangelo’s David, the Asian dynasties or Mayan ruins and rituals. Will you serve a cause that is a reflection of man’s best and worst times in history? Why create? Hmmmm, I think I will teach art! Then I may know better how to create. Now let’s talk about the responsibility of serving and leading others. Is there anything better than to teach, I think not?

    I've been a teacher for over 20 years. Teaching is not the same profession as it used to be. Part of the enjoyment of teaching was being abke to create curriculum for students and use creativity and fun while doing it. Now the curriculum is so scripted and tests are so important that teachers and students often feel like they are only a score on a paper. As a Language Arts teacher I can tell you I leave my house daily at 6:30 am and came home about 4:30. Then I do the chores, cleaning and taking care of kids until they go o bed. But then there is usually at least 1-2 hours of grading per night and creating rigorous lesson plans. I have worked the last 5 years in a state that has not offered any raises and my pay is laughable for what a 20 year veteran teacher should be making. Teaching is hard work like many jobs. I don't ask that peopke think it's harder than their own job. I just ask that people show teachers respect. If people would respect teachers, then students woukd respect teachers.

    It's all true. Pretty much count out doing anything spontaneous during the school year. Teachers are swamped the entire time and their vacation is totally inflexible. You have to arrange yours to meet theirs. They bring everything home with them, including all the office politics. If you want a girl with good work/life balance, stay away.

    My best friend is a teacher, I work in finance. We both envy each other.

    I typically start work at 7am, when I am expected to start picking up emails on my commute. I will spend 2 hours trying to deal with urgent errors that have cropped up, recalculating complex cases, and explaining to my client either why they are wrong (and they hate to be wrong) or why they have lost a penny (because of the rounding order they agreed on).

    On arriving at the office I have about 5 minutes before my phone starts ringing. It could be a client yelling at me, or a scheme member calling to tell me I know jack shit because I am a woman and verbally abusing me. Or somebody in another department expecting me to tell them how to do their job. The phone will ring at least 3 times an hour all day.

    I will receive up to 70 emails in a day, and as we have a one day turn around time every enquiry must be dealt with today! Regardless of the fact that this alone would take me a full working day of digging around in scheme rules and legislation or rehashing 30 page long algebraic calculations.

    I spend the first hour trying to deal with the 9am flood of emails/calls, whilst also fixing my colleague's petty disputes as I am the only calm person on the team.

    I will then spend an hour trying to fix other people's fuck ups to make sure my schemes get paid on time and correctly, before I can maybe do some work.

    But no, because by now our first complaint has arrived. I will spend a further hour trying to find out what we did wrong, whether we are legally screwed, how to fix it, recalculating the lot and issuing a 6 page legal essay to the complainant politely telling him to fuck off before reporting the breach to our client. If I'm lucky I'll be only moderately patronised by a bulimic crack addict power tripping woman.

    It should be lunch time, but I'm not finished with this unscheduled interruption to my day so I will work through – if it's a good day, somebody will bring me a sandwich when they go get their own lunch.

    By now, it's 1pm and my trainee has interrupted me a hundred times already so I've promised to sit with him at some point. Now I get to go and sit with this 19 year old IDIOT who they employed because he lied about his grades but refuse to sack, and deal with his inane questions. I try to teach him basic maths, while he asks me whether he snivels about his girlfriend telling him what a lazy, useless, tosser he is and try so hard not to agree with her – even when he spells his own name wrong.

    2pm, oh right I had a meeting scheduled. I go to freeze my backside off in a tiny room while somebody goes on for an hour about how shit we are at our jobs and all I'm thinking about is how much I need to get done.

    3pm I get back to my desk, after calming down my enraged colleague who is prone to flared tempers. Project manager has been round and left me a note – that change I requested has been made to the system and I need to test it before our systems consultant goes home. For the next hour I become a programmer, testing every possible scenario through the system and guess what? The pivot tables are set up wrong and none of it works.

    4pm and I finally start addressing some of those 70 emails as they really need dealing with, people are calling ne asking why I haven't answered yet because they badly need X before they leave the office.

    5pm – sick of the constant interruptions and mindless abuse from other people, I pack up every single piece of work I was supposed to do today, I head home, and for the first time today I start doing my job.

    I work through until about 10pm before realising I'm so tired that I'm doing calculations all wrong and going to bed unfed, unwashed and exhausted ready to be up in 7 hours' time and do it again.

    Of course, my friend who's a teacher thinks I have the easiest job on the planet and can't understand why I am so run down all the time. To me, it feels like she is forever calling me asking if I want to meet at the pub later so how busy can she really be? To her I am a flake and can never be bothered to go out as no job can be THAT time consuming!

    She earns more than me, she gets more time off than me… Why is she complaining? She only even became a teacher because when we graduated she couldn't find a job so she went back to uni to do her PGCE just to fill time… But then I often have to comfort her when she calls me in tears because her week was so tough.

    I think all we can conclude is that nobody's job is easy! If it were, it wouldn't be called 'work'

    So I'm in school right now, studying to become a teacher. I can guarantee you one thing: I will enjoy it and not complain as much as the teachers that are commenting on this. This blogger is joking around, so have a sense of humor. Also, it seems that most of you hate your job. Why are you a teacher in the first place if you are so hell-bent on convincing everyone that it is the most unappreciated, unrewarding job around? Shame on you for whining about something you are passionate about. If you aren't passionate about it, maybe it's time you look into doing something else.

    I am a teacher, I work from 8 till 3 pm, sounds easy right? I then come home, have half an hour to read a book (which has already taken me three weeks to start!) and eat a banana (i may not have had lunch due to vomiting child, unscheduled meetings, detentions, marking, scenery making for christmas play etc) and then work at home till about half nine/ten every evening. I do not get paid for thos extra 6 hours. Finally i crawl into bed, and suddenly after what feels like no sleep at all, the alarm goes off to get back up at 7am. While all this is going on, I am playing nurse, doctor, mother, teacher and negotiator to children, i am planning lessons, mid terms, christmas plays, harvest, easter assemblies, marking, assessing, trying to listen to readers, welcoming new children, selling to prospective parents, talking to parents, parents evening, meeting, reports, buying out of my own pitiless wage pencils, paper etc. I am doing all this while full of a cold which hasnt gone in 6 months, or while having to pop to the toilet every half an hour for a jippy tummy, while ive lost my voice and feeling faint. I use my 'long' holiday to recover, to catch up, to start planning for the next year. I love my job, wouldnt change it for the world, but unless you teach, dont for one minute think my job is easy!

    I'm glad you added the 'kidding' part at the end there. My girlfriend is a teacher, a hard-working one at that, and even though she's completely exhausted by the time she gets home (10 minutes before th kids go to bed), she only has love to give.
    I will say this though; no matter how much of a bad day you are having, it will never be any worse than a teacher's day, so never EVER complain.

    This is fantastic and soooo true. I am a teacher, all my close friends are from uni and therefore teachers as well. I find that we understand each other through these times and many teachers are misunderstood due to these stock standard character traits.

    Even in Australia there is the stigma that teachers get great holidays for relatively easy money but I get the feeling that as a career, we are much more valued by parents as opposed to America yet still undervalued by society. Yes I deserve a pay rise but I'm not going to quit because of it. And I feel like a lot of people posting here are under the impression that our pay conditions are rightly justified. But there does definitely need to be more appreciation shown towards this as a career.

    I didn't get into teaching because I wanted good holidays. I didn't get into teaching to become rich. I also didn't get into teaching because I simply didn't get the marks to be anything better. I became a teacher because I am excited to teach, I love the look on a students face when they want to know more about something. I feel a great sense of achievement and satisfaction in my work. I feel like I am planting seeds that will one day grow into something powerful.

    Yes teachers whinge a lot, but a lot of people whinge back. There is no where near as many complaints and remarks made about any other field with the exception of maybe nursing. But regardless of what field you work in, if you chose it because of money, holidays or your school results, you will not enjoy it. If you work hard but feel enjoyment and satisfaction at the end of the day, then you have nothing to whinge about. Those who complain about the difficulty of their work, whatever it may be, need to consider a career change. And you can thank your teachers for the fact that you have the ability to change your career or even whinge about your current one.

    In 2000 the United Nations released its Millennium Goals outlining goals to break poverty worldwide by 2015. Education was one of the key areas on this list. If the United Nations are able to acknowledge the key role played by teachers to the growth and development of a country, why is society so quick to judge their downfalls. If it wasn't for education, current areas of employment would not exist.

    Moral of the story:
    Don't bite the hand that feeds you.

    First let me say that I am not a teacher. I am a retired police officer and currently working in a second profession in a related field. That being said, I think the blog is funny, accurate and should be taken as intended. One of my dearest friends teaches at a Title 1 elementary school and what you described sounds like a typical day for her.
    Second, to all those who felt it necessary to comment about how hard your job is, don't read this blog. Seriously, go to your own website. I'm sure, as you are so important, you have your 'bankers r us' website to post on or your 'look at me I'm an attorney' blogs. Feel free to post your whines/gripes/complaints there. Better yet, take a clue from this author and post something humorous about your job to make others feel better instead of bringing people down.
    Lastly, a teacher is one of those professions where, if you are calling out sick, the world pretty much comes to a stand still. You must have plans already in place and a substitute MUST be called in. When I took a sick day the city did not stop, crime continued and so did the other officers. We just ran short. You can't do that.
    So thank you for the post and to my friend who sent it to me, you are truly appreciated.

    The comments above only highlight the ignorance other people have regarding teachers. I have taught for 20+ years. The work load has doubled and tripled in that time with all the expectations placed upon teachers and the CYA paperwork mountains to "prove" it. I am a fairly intelligent person with an extremely high IQ who had many career options, but I chose the job because I love children and want to make a difference. I loved my job for many years, but these days I never sit down at work, stay for several hours after students leave each day, and spend the evening grading or looking for materials or information to help students achieve the ridiculous testing goals that determine every aspect of our career now. I have almost no time for my family or for myself and my house looks like a disaster area. In fact, today is a rare "snow day" and I have been working on curriculum and looking at educational websites for ideas of how to help my struggling students jump three levels in one year to meet our new standards. instead of playing with my kids in the snow or even getting my Christmas cards out. I am mentally and physically drained trying to educate 140 + middle-schoolers who are more concerned about their social life than academics and prepare them for an extremely rigourous test, often without their cooperation. I have worked in other fields, and I have owned a business. Nothing has ever been as hard as what I do today. Why do I still do it? Because every now and then, a student comes back and thanks me and tells me that I really did make a difference to them. That is the reward. It is certainly not the pay that will keep me workiing long after retirement age and taking additional jobs as I can. And as for the lawyers and investment bankers with their snarky comments: you may work long and hard at your jobs, but your compensation matches your work. I have to pick up additional jobs during any time I am not working just to stay afloat. We are not paid for that "three month vacation" everyone likes to spout off about (and I don't know where they get three months. Our break never is. We only get three paid "personal days" for our paid vacation or anything else we need them for yearly.) I work almost harder then than I do during the school year. Oh, and "Professional Development" for us means getting up before the crack of dawn and driving a long distance for an all day work session that is not fun, often doing this daily for several weeks of our own time, without reimbursement. In fact, sometimes we pay to attend. We don't get to jet away on an expense account to some exotic locale for a "convention" or a "professional meeting". (I can't even afford to jet off to an exotic locale on my "vacation", nor have I ever been on a cruise.) I am too old now to change professions, but I wonder how my profession wll sustain itself. Already there are more openings than there are teachers to fill them and the number of students entering the profession has dropped markedly. I grieves me to see what coroporate greed and political ignorance is doing to my profession. All of that nonsense has taken away from true education and the students are showing the effects of it. As in every profession, there are incompetent teachers. But there are also incompetent bankers, lawyers, doctors, and every other profession you could name. Our country's condition is evidence of that. It is very easy to spout and scoff when you have never walked a mile in the shoes of a real teacher.

    Regarding summers off: teachers do not have summers off. We are unemployed during the summer. We are actually paid only for the instructional year. It used to be we chose whether we wanted our pay spread out over 12 months or over ten, but the former is now common practice.
    I know other tradespeople and government workers who are paid roughly the same salary we are, and work more days per year, but do not take work home, are not subject to the same pubic scrutiny and legislative interference, and don't have postgraduate degrees.
    I challenge any investment banker to pass the teacher qualification exams in my state, prerequisite to acquiring even a temporary credential. Go home right now, sit down, and without falling back on Google, write a two page essay on the Missouri Compromise, design a detailed lesson plan demonstrating how you would teach a left-handed 8 year old to throw a baseball correctly, then explain in words and pictures how Eratosthenes calculated the earth's diameter. List the most prominent representatives of the American Transcendentalist movement, briefly discuss the contributions and relative merits of Piaget & Skinner as they pertain to modern pedagogical theory, and list seven scientific discoveries of Ancient China and their modern applications. Name three European languages that do not belong to the Proto-European language groups and outline a cogent theory of population migration that explains them. Go ahead. The average kindergarten teacher could kick an investment banker's ass in any variation of Trivial Pursuit you can devise.

    I'm a teacher and my husband thought this was funny and true… but he still respects what I do, just like I respect what he does. He works a very high paying job from home but still takes time to monitor the teenager in my house. That is a job by itself. However, the hours of a teacher listed in the post above are clearly true……… However, if you are a true professional and want to better yourself in the field then you are not taking the summer off… 3 weeks of the summer I am in training learning new techniques on teaching reading and math. 2 of the weeks I am training other teachers. 1 week I am writing new and revised curriculum for the county. School begins after labor day but I am in the classroom setting up by the 2nd week of August getting ready for the fall and pre assessments of the children coming to school for the first time. My mind may sometimes be at home but it is thinking about planning what I need to do for preparation. Do I take a vacation? Yes…. but the hours I spend on my job does not include 3 months off.

    I love to teach. It is what I was made for, though I had another career before this one. It is both the most exhausting the most wonderful thing I have ever known. I work my tail off for a relatively low amount of pay because I love my kids and I love to see them learn. I love the relationships I build with kids and parents. It is often physically painful at this point in my life due to arthritis, but I am just not ready to put it away. I do work at least a seventy hour week, but the great majority of it is worth the effort because it is done for some kid that I love.
    I wanted to add to the original post, though. My husband of 34 years also never, ever throws anything away without checking with me first. Toilet paper rolls, random pieces of plastic, plastic jars, whatever, might need to be kept because anything can turn into something! I have a closet full of trash in my room and kids go through there when they need something and end up with all sorts of crazy creations.
    And it is true, being the child of a teacher is hard work! My son is grown and living in another state, and I miss that strong back every August and every June! But I think they learn a lot of compassion and empathy from their exposure, especially when it occurs in a low SES school.

    I dated a high school English teacher.
    I married her. During a debate she would correct my grammar and diction.
    Your post is completely true, except for the ending. If you're in a bar and you see a woman in flats and a cardigan with an oversized shoulder tote asking about discounts, Introduce yourself, buy her a drink, and if she turns out to be a teacher, propose on the spot.

    Marry her. It will be totally worth it.
    I promise.

    I really liked this article, I read it in good humour and although i don't think it all applies to me, I sent it to my boyfriend to see what he thought. He sent back a 'directed at the original post answer'. It tickled me so much I thought I would share it………

    I have a friend who is dating a teacher and he said the following:

    "The best thing about going out with a teacher is the fact that one can pretend to be supportive at all the times she needs to spend doing work at home when really its great to be free to do stuff all on one's own and then at the end of the day get a shag for being an understanding boyfriend."

    I once dated a guy whose mother was a teacher and he said to me as I was going into the teaching profession, " those who cannot do, teach ". Maybe so, but it still does not diminish the importance of those ( teachers) who can instill importance in their students lives.This guy obviously had no respect for his mother. I respected all my teachers for all different reasons. They all had an impact on who I am today. And I don't feel I am that bad at all.

    To whom it may concern;,
    Yes… I know I'm using poor grammar, poor punctuation and add far too many commas, and um… actually employ run-on sentence structure in an effort to belabor a point. The thing is, I don't care. I can still get my point across without being perfect. Usually.
    I am old enough not to be burdened with the "No Pass No Play" rule. Thank God for that. Seriously, thank you God. I'm old enough to know the words to, the meaning of and have a story that relates to the wonderful prose of Van Halen's "Hot for Teacher" song. If you haven't heard it, you're not a teacher. Or at most, you're a substitute with grand ideas of one day leading the crew you see before you and the proud owner of the apple you'd never get near your mouth.
    In high school, I did my share of skipping. I'm not proud of that… actually I am. I'm really proud of that. Sure, I missed the day's assignment but going to the lake in a two-seat MG Spyder with two girls, (one having to ride on the trunk near the riding compartment) compared to boning up on the war of 1812, taking part in a literary analysis of Charles Dickens "A Tale of Two Cities", dealing with an over zealous algebra instructor who seems to be teetering on the precipice of complete bliss whilst discussing his deep erotic theory of what the multiplicative properties of negative one are and how the concept would absolutely serve me well in life moving forward….. well… the choice between the two ideologies should be clear. Given this group, perhaps not. This is what brings me to my point(lessness).
    All life's lessons growing up are not taught in the classroom. As teachers, you facilitate the building blocks of a child's mind. You build from when they are young enough to listen and wonder to old enough when they no longer care what you're trying to tell them. While you get frustrated with students like me, know that we still listen to you. We cared even though we didn't seem to. It was an act, a means to fit in, a way to fit in to everything and with everyone but somehow be perceived as an original thinker. It makes no sense. That's what being a teenager is. Don't judge too harshly those that do not fit the mold you cast for us. Sometimes, things happen the way they do for a reason. After all the skipping, fighting, not doing my homework as well as I could have, I ended up being the first to graduate college in my family with an advanced degree, I'm a director for a DoD IT firm and I do a pretty good job of providing for those I care about. (And for some I don't even know.)
    I felt compelled to write something on this site after reading how I should not date a teacher. Much like high school, I heard the noise but I'm not going to pay attention. I've actually met a teacher and am looking forward to going out with her. I hope she skirted the fringes of conformity just as I did. Maybe we'll team up and be non-conformists together. That would be awesome. She can return to structured patterns during class hours. I get the need for that. Doesn't mean I won't make fun of her. But I can dig it.
    Thank you for what you do, thank you for reading this and as far as my sentence structure and poor grammar goes… too bad. Deal with it.

    Mike

    P.S. Mrs. Mick… I hated your english class but I would have totally done you.

    If you are a teacher, dating someone who thinks that teaching is not a "real job", run the other way, because it never gets any better. Also, if you ever have to move, forget teaching again in the same system, or perhaps ever, because you will have "too much experience" to be hired again anywhere as anything other than a substitute. These are sad, but true facts. I am living proof.

    OMG. People are awful. All judgey and superior. On both sides. Errbody needs to settle down. Teachers are amazing humans,and so are other folks who don't have teaching jobs.

    I love this post, and I love your haiku, limerick, and free form poetry. (I also love parenthesis). Some people are unaware of the trials that come with courting those in education, so I'm glad for this post to share with the unschooled. Haha.

    Thanks for your work, Love Teach! This post was wonderful.

  99. Kim

    Let's be honest here. Teachers do work ridiculous number of hours with a lot of emotional stress and pressure added in working with children or teenagers. HOWEVER, we work in a system that allows (and maybe even encourages because of its so little accountability and oversight) teachers to get away ay with the least amount of work as possible. I work with most English teachers who don't assign essays because they don't want to spend time required in grading them. I work with teachers who pass kids at 55% because they don't want to deal with the parents and admin phone calls. I work with teachers who believe that 30+% plagiarism is ok because they don't want to bother to have the talk with students. I work with teachers who assign packets so they can sit on their asses reading and writing Facebook posts. I work with teachers who shout "status quo all the way" and those who tell the young teachers to not do anything beyond their job requirements. I see teachers regularly come late and leave early. Do I think those teachers on my campus are the anomalies? No. Do most teachers work anything close to 10 hours like many suggested. No. I know teachers deserve praise and respect and I welcome any that come my way, but my daily personal experiences on my campus teaches me it's the bad teachers who complain that we are overworked and underpaid. That's not to say we're not because teachers are. Sad reality though is that less than half of the teachers really work all that hard as they say they do and should.

    I'm now retired after 35 years of teaching high school English. On a weekend about 6 months after I'd retired, I caught myself thinking, "Oh, darn! I have to grade papers this afternoon."

    Then I caught myself. No, I don't have to grade papers any more.

    I'd been doing it so long that it was just part of the fabric of my mind.

    As to the summers off…that's a laugh. I taught summer school several times. I needed the money. I took summer school courses, mainly in literature, but also in the teaching of writing, because I wanted to be better prepared. I don't know how many times I did that. I also took 7 summer programs in German. I did a month-long program at UC Davis on the teaching of writing.

    I was a very active member of California Association of Teachers of English, and the Capitol Council of Teachers of English where I attended numerous weekend conferences in order to learn techniques to improve my teaching and to Inspire my kids to do better.

    Not all teachers are bad to date. I am studying to be a special education teacher, so my boyfriend won't have to worry about grading he'll have to worry about IEPs, and parent / teacher conferences, and workshops more likely.

    Teacher's don't actually get paid for their summers off. We only get paid for instructional days. Many teachers would complain less if people stopped undermining our jobs and what we actually do. So many people think they know what a teacher does because most have sat in a classroom as students. Trust me, there is a lot of work that teachers do behind the scenes. I believe it is never fair to assume you know what someone's job is like unless you have actually done it yourself.

    It's a great joy for me that i can also write out my testimony for others to read and be happy with me.
    Most people do contact AZIBA for different kinds of problem but i have a specific reason of contacting him for help,i am a married woman of forty five(45) years of age and since Five(5)years now i have been single my husband left me because i was unable to get him a child, on one faithful day i was in the office so a friend came to me and we were discussing some issues related to my problem and she made mention of a name PRIEST AZIBA and she said something that drew my attention to the name on how the PRIEST helped a lady of 55years in GERMANY in getting a child and she said the man can also help me. i doubted it but she forced me in giving it a try which i did, i contacted AZIBA and lay my complains about my husband and why he left me, but i still don't believe he can help me because i thought all hope was lost. believe me or not after taking orders from the priest and he assured me that in the next(5)days my husband will come back asking for forgiveness.
    my brother's and sister's it's a miracle,words are not enough to express my happiness, there is nothing GOD can't do he has used this man to give me the happiness of my life, as am typing my husband is right behind me and am six(6) months pregnant. most people may not believe in my testimony but i would advice you give a try just as i did. contact him on his Mail:PRIESTAZIBASOLUTIONCENTER@OUTLOOK.COM

    After being in relationship with him for 3 years, he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that never believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I mailed the spell caster, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the other ones out there.

    How do i express my gratitude to Dr Kareem for his kindness and help in my life?. Years ago i broke up with my husband and we both went separate ways without hearing from each other. I love my husband so much that i couldn't stay a day without him. However, i was searching for a help on how to get him back when my friend told me about Dr Kareem how he casts love spells to re-unite broken relationship and marriages .Although i was skeptical at first but due to the love i have for my husband i decided to contacted him for a help and he assured me that my husband would come back to me. He also told me he could do so many things such as: MARITAL PROBLEMS,DEPRESSION,SICKNESSES BEYOND MEDICATIONS,BREAK UP,LOVE SPELL,INSTANT DEATH REVENGE ,INFERTILITY PROBLEM, EX. REMOVAL, BAD LUCK,ATTRACTION,WIN A LOTTO,CONTRACT,PROMOTION AT WORK, RECOVERING BACK LOST FUNDS OR DEBT…You never know until you break down the walls and give something a chance Though i know it sounds too desperate but i love my husband and wanted him back and i did all he told me to do and everything happened just as he said. My husband came back to me after 12 hours of preparing the love spell and we have been living for some years now without any problem. People call Doctor Kareem as nice man but i call him a God sent! and i am totally convinced that he is actually a God on earth. Here is my phone number +15309038029 text me for any information. Do you need help then contact Doctor

    When my boyfriend and I broke up I was completely lost. A good friend of mine recommended that I have a love spell cast to bring him back by http://ancientfathersandmothers.com I thought that idea of a love spell was strange, but was willing to give it a shot. When I contacted Dr. Lee for the first time I was scared because I was not sure if what they did went against my religion. He assured me that they only use Ancient traditional magic spell which is safe and has no side effects. I felt a little better and decided to do the return lover spell. I did not think that it would work considering my ex and his whole family hated me and told me never to contact them again. Within a week he showed up at my job and brought flowers to me. He said that he missed me more than he could describe and decided that the good out weighed the bad. We got back together and our relationship has been better the second time around. For more details you can also contact him via his mobile number: +1408-359-6554. I have to give http://ancientfathersandmothers.com all of the credit in the world for helping us get back to a better place than where we began. The new found love that he has for me is incredible and I can’t wait to see what the future holds! For more details you can also contact him via his mobile number: +1408-359-6554

    How to Get Your Ex Back After a Breakup or Divorce.! Am giving this testimony cos am so happy, I want to thank Dr Frank Ojo for the great thing he has done in my life , he brought happiness to my life .! A very big problem occurred in my Marriage seven months ago,between me and my husband .so terrible that he took the case to court for a divorce. he said that he never wanted to stay with me again,and that he didn't love me anymore.So he packed out of the house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get him back,after much begging,but all to no avail.and he confirmed it that he has made his decision,and he never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my husband .So i explained every thing to him,so he told me that the only way i can get my husband back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for him too.So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow his advice. Then he gave me the email address of the spell caster whom he visited. TEMPLEOFLOVEANDPROSPERITY@GMAIL.COM.

    Teacher's don't get summers off? Tell that to my friends who spend the entire summer at their famliy shore house. Their life consists of spending all day at the beach and getting drunk at night. There are no seminars, papers, lesson plans.. They love that argument but it's never available when you ask to see it after hearing then complain for 2 hours straight. And they still whine more than anyone I know.. Even more than friends who fought in Afghanistan. Not saying there aren't challenges, but every job has them and most teachers give no respect to any other profession. If it's so bad then GET A DIFFERENT JOB. One summer spent in a cubicle or one Christmas "break" (1 day off in the real world, not 2 weeks!) And then whine about how bad it was to teach.

    Hello everyone I’m here to share a testimony on how my HIV was cure by a herbal doctor with the help of herbal medicine and herbal soap, As we all know medically, there is no solution or cure for HIV and the cost for Medication is very expensive. Someone introduced me to a man (Native Medical Practitioner) I showed the man all my Tests and Results and I told him i have already diagnosed with HIV and have spent thousands of dollars on medication. I said I will like to try him cause someone introduced me to him. He asked me sorts of questions and I answered him correctly. To cut the story short, He gave me some medicinal soaps and some herbs(have forgot the name he called them) and he thought me how am going to use them all. At first I was skeptical but I just gave it a try. I was on his Medication for 2 weeks and I used all the soaps and herbs according to his prescription. That he will finish the rest himself. And I called him 3 days after, I arrived and I told him what is the next thing he said, he has been expecting my call. He told me to visit my doctor for another test. Honestly speaking, i never believe all he was saying until after the test when my doctor mention the statement that am, HIV negative and the doctor started asking me how come about the cure, And I make a promise to dr osas that if I’m heal I will testify his good work in my life, if there is anyone out there who may need the help of dr osas you can email him via his email address drosasherbalhome@gmail.com For any type of sickness he can cure any disease WhatSAPP OR CALL him via his number +2349035428122 he also has herbal oil for Penis Enlargement HE CAN AS WELL CURE THE FOLLOWING DISEASE:1.

    My boyfriend is back after he left me. My ex and I were friends for 8 years before we finally started dating. We really had a lot of fun together and I truly believe we can be great for eachother. Yet the timing just wasn't right. We dated for almost 2 years and during that time we both were in university and working so it was difficult to see eachother. And due to that we started fighting and eventually it led to him cheating on me because he was drunk at a party. We tried to move past it but in the end the distrust was too hard for us to keep moving forward and my anxiety caused him to break up with me. It has now been 3 months and we just started talking. He said he misses me and I told him I still have feelings for him but he said he isn't ready. What should I do? I needed help. As i was browsing through the internet i came across a website that suggested Dr.Unity can help get ex lover back fast and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and told him my problems and he told me what to do and i did it and he did a spell for me. 11 hours later, my boyfriend came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my boyfriend are living together happily again. Dr.Unity is the best online spell caster that is powerful and genuine. If you have any problem contact him and i guarantee you that he will help you.

    I remember a chick from high school who was a rude nasty bitch to me. Fast forward 9 yrs later & she's teaching in high school. All I can say is I feel real sorry for any kid who has to endure her attitude
