Actually, you still can't blame your students for all that. You really, really can't. They get saddled with a shitty new teacher who doesn't understand their culture, their background, or how to teach EVERY SINGLE YEAR. You were only one in a depressingly long line of terrible teachers, who will pass the students along because the administration tells them to, and then the next year, they will be even more resentful and angry and violently inclined. But don't worry! A lot of them will end up in prison if they're boys!

If you're being exploited, never try to change things. It will only make the people in power mad at you, and that's your fault.

My first post-college interview was for a retail position (ball so hard) and at one point my interviewer and I had a long, painful exchange about my thesis, which only made sense to me later when I realized that I was talking about the Renaissance epic poem The Faerie Queene and he was talking about Dairy Queen. Incredibly I got the job!
@NoReally Are you Logan's mom? If not, it's super obnoxious to call people honey. If so, I apologize.
