Another View on Why Teachers are Leaving the Profession

As most of you know, we started the school year at The School, with two unfilled teaching positions.  We are nearly finished with our first nine weeks grading period and we just, finally, filled one of the positions (a special education slot dealing with our kids with emotional and behavior issues) but the seventh grade science position is still open.  Rumor has it there may be a candidate for it, but nothing concrete at this point.

So, I got to wondering if it was just my district (my building isn't the only one with open teaching positions) or the State, or what.  So I started cruising some of the educational blogs and websites I read and stumbled across this gem.

You must read these.


I basically want to find this woman and hug her and scream, "Yes!  What she said!" because she freaking NAILED IT.

Read these.  Read them now.

Great post! It outlines the issue and I understand the inner life of teachers. Still, students' life might be complicated too, especially when it comes to essay and other college papers writing. I deal with it usually with the help of essay writing service. Some of my group mates attend workshops and courses as writing skills are crucial for some of their lives. I am not going to become a writer, so I prefer applying to professional essay writers.

On this question, in fact, there may be many options for an answer. For example, as for me, one of them is that these days students are very lazy and they very often, instead of writing themselves, they simply order them from writing services. Of course I also do my term paper using it, but it happens not very often.
