It was bound to happen. It came out of nowhere, completely unexpected, but it did have to happen.
Today I was doing my 2nd lunch duty in a row (I know, I know, I don't mind doing lunch duty). The third grade was in the cafeteria and there was about 2-3 minutes left.
As the students were cleaning up and getting ready for their teachers a 3rd grade teacher, for whose class I covered for prep the other day, walked by me and complimented me on my classroom management. Out of curiosity I inquired as to why he was saying that.
"Oh, we get lots of subs in here that just can't control their classes and have the kids running all over the classroom," he said.
I looked at him and replied, "I'm not a sub, I'm an ATR." I said this with pride.
He apologized and told me that the previous ATR was at the school for a few months and then "disappeared."
"Anyway," he continued, "What do I know? I have only been teaching 5 months." A NOOB!!!!!
What was he talking about Willis?
Yes, it is always nice to receive a compliment, but, come on. From a noob?
I so wanted to say so much more. I held my tongue. Not worth it. I want too as well on this post but I shan't.
I just can't write about this anymore.
