What the hell is wrong with some parents? I mean seriously, do they really have to pass their racist bullshit down to their kids? Stephanie's going to miss a week of recess for calling poor little Maria a wetback but it's Stephanie's parents I really wish I could punish.

Well, damn it, one of my kids got himself suspended today. I shouldn't be surprised I suppose. It was pretty clear Evan had issues controlling his temper but I never thought he'd take a swing at Jeff. They've been close friends ever since the first day. Evan insists that he did it because Jeff said something rude about his mother but I was standing right there and all Jeff said is that he hoped Evan would be able to stay over at his place this weekend.

Got to school bright and early to get everything set up for the kids. Stacked their books on top of their desks ready for when they got there and quickly took a picture of my classroom before they arrived.
Today went well for a first day I think.

Hello to everyone reading my blog. Not sure how you got here since I didn't tell anyone I was starting this blog but thanks for reading anyway. I'm sure you want to know a little about me so here goes. I'm 34, I live in west Michigan and I teach third grade at a local public school. No I'm not going to tell you which one. One of the reasons I didn't tell anyone about this blog is because I intend to use it to gripe about students, parents, and the administration. That's a good way to get fired hence the secrecy. If I refer to any of the kids in my class on here I won't be using their real name, although to make it easier on my memory the name I use for them will start with the same letter. Tomorrow is the first day of school, I'll be teaching a class of twenty eight year olds. Wish me luck.
Oh, I almost forgot. Check out something I bought for them to play with when we need to have recess indoors.
I found him at a local flea market and bought him because he reminds me of a show I used to watch when I was a kid. Even though he doesn't look much like the puppet from the show I think I'm going to name him Percy.
