I joined this site a while ago but this is the first time im replying to a persons post, that isnt workout related. Your a Teacher, what you have to be there by 8:00 or 9:00 am and your done at around 3:00 or 3:30. and you cant be on time for work?
Thank god I work in a professional enviroment ( you belong to a union, your not a professional) where we are expected to be adults and have our work finished not matter how long it takes, I would just love to take a teacher to work with me for a week and let them see what work is like without a union, meeting deadlines, working 10 to 12 hours a day to get something done that has to be out the next day, working through lunch and dinner.
You complain that your superior is ratting you out? is it her fault she puts in more hours then what her contract says and she busts her ass? nope. I guess its true “those who can do, those you screwed around in university and had fun and didnt know what they wanted to do, and ended up with some degree, and decided to go to teachers college so they could get summers off and work 200 days a year…teach”
Read the post, it was a co-worker not a superior. As for this person putting in more hours than the other in a job where most of your work and planning is done at home(my wife is a teacher), who gives a shit. All that tells me is that this person has no life, is not married or engaged and doesnt care how much time they spend away from home. You sound bitter about teachers only working 180 days a year and having summers off.[/quote]
Thanks for clearing that up, i didnt realize it was a co-worker and not a superior…As for working at home versus being in at work most if not everyone works at home as well as at work, hell i work on Saturday mornings in the office just to be responsible and get more work done.
My father, sister, and girlfriend are teachers so I think I am familiar with what there work entails. Bitter about only having to work half a year, yeah you could say that I feel they have it pretty easy and should be responsible enough to arrive at work as per their contract which their union negotiated for them.
I would love to go on strike and for more money, better hours, more benefits, but then if I did my boss would just fire me. Amazing, how Doctors, Lawyers, Engineers, Accountants, Dentists all do not belong to unions. Yet after all of this I would still just tell the person that hey, be a adult, do your job, be on time. I know my father has been on time for 35 years.
