My students are beautiful and great. Of course, some of them are challenging, but that's the point of this job and I love it.
The adults, however, are slowly (or quickly, in some cases) driving me insane. Without going into too many specifics (I'm a weird combination of egotistical and paranoid enough to suspect that I have readers at my school -- spies are everywhere!) I can just say that I am tired of the power plays, illogical decisions, and general lack of spiny-ness of my administrators. This school is a ball of dysfunction, and the most dysfunctional are at the helm!
I'm growing weary, ladies and gentlemen. And it's only the third day. Either they're going to have to change, or I'm going to explode in a blaze of fury (and by that I mean be passive aggressive for the rest of the year and then transfer to some other dysfunctional DC school where I like the administration). Only time will tell.
