Look, I would turn in my paperwork and retire in June if I could. But, I can't. I can't afford to pay a mortgage, my bills, taxes, and board for 5 horses, AND health care insurance. If I could, I would be OUTTA THERE June 13th. ...sigh...
So, I'll have to work until I'm 65 (2 more years). That's just the reality of the situation. I looked up my health care insurance under Obama care and it would cost $600 a month. Nope. Can't do that.
After yesterday, however, I was ready to quit. The kids were HORRIBLE. Talking, throwing crayons, crawling on the floor, leaning back in chairs. Honestly, I spend 99% of my time on discipline and 1% on teaching. I mean, don't kids today know how to BEHAVE????????
There are about 5 of us who are totally FED UP and want to retire. Kids today just aren't the same as those we had 20 years ago. They want EVERYTHING instantly. They want to "play" on their ipads. Play? Excuse me?
It's getting harder and harder to drag myself to school each and every day. I'm REALLY looking forward to spring break in April, and then the summer.
