And other duties as assigned....

Teacher contracts are a little vague...  because there is no way to include all of the things that we really do within a day, and the general public has no idea how weird our job can get.   Today was full of "other duties".   I am not going to go into what happened,  but I will just say that teaching sometimes is really gross.   Kids are sweet and funny and sometimes really disgusting.   As I was having a very strange conversation with a student today,  one of my very favorite teachers overheard me.   She just looked at me and smiled and said, "and other duties - as assigned".   Some days are just like that. 

Pin It!

  2. Even in Australia! Those "other duties" are the things that the general public doesn't realize or forget about our jobs. We're so much more than "teachers"!
