Thread Name: How many mudcatters are teachers?
Subject: RE: BS: How many mudcatters are teachers?
No Liz that's a preacher! I would love to be an ex teacher. If I never saw another classroom again it would be too soon but unfortunately it is my occupation and when the recent census asked how many hours a week I worked I was tempted to say all of them but settled for 50! I do more paper work now than ever I did in an office and it all has to be done outside of the school day . I arrive each day at 8.15 and rarely leave much before five. Then its a couple of hours most evenings just to keep up and I probably ought to do more! Geoff qualified as a tertiary science teacher last year but has not managed to find work yet. I know so many people who have left or taken early retirement because of stress related illnesses I do wonder why I do it!
