Another Monday


It’s another Monday, and I just wish I could stay in bed. Back to another week of school and spoiled kids who don’t care about learning, and rotten parents who think teachers are there to pass their kids. Not all of my students are that bad. In fact my first three classes of the day are pretty good; however, my other three classes are mostly rotten. They just don’t want to learn. I will whip them into shape, or they can choose to take my class again next year. I have no illusion that people are going to like history and English, but they don’t have a choice. All of the classes I teach are required, and if the students don’t pass, they don’t move on to the next grade. It makes it difficult at times, but I do my best to make it as interesting as possible.


About Joe

I began my life in the South and for five years lived as a closeted teacher, but am now making a new life for myself as an oral historian in New England. I think my life will work out the way it was always meant to be. That doesn't mean there won't be ups and downs; that's all part of life. It means I just have to be patient. I feel like October 7, 2015 is my new birthday. It's a beginning filled with great hope. It's a second chance to live my life…not anyone else's. My profile picture is "David and Me," 2001 painting by artist Steve Walker. It happens to be one of my favorite modern gay art pieces. View all posts by Joe
