Secretly Bad Teacher
Being a 4th-5th grade teacher nowadays is a pain in the ass. Not only are the students thick-headed, they're little perverts. They sexually harass me and each other. I get pinched, groped, and get vulgar notes and e-mails. The administration is useless because they care more for avoiding scandal and bad press than they do for educational standards.
We finally had a teacher-student s** scandal a few months ago, and the teachers were warned not to speak to reporters. The official word was that it was an isolated incident.
After that some of the other teachers quit. I couldn't because I need the medical coverage and the paycheck. I began ignoring them, no mater what. This led to an escalation in the harassment.
I think I'm beginning to crack. I'm having erotic dreams of my students. I caught myself responding to their e-mails and even replying to their vulgar flirting in class.
I need to drink. Or stop drinking.
