Children are very different today. It is a challenge for them and for the teachers especially substitute teachers. Children do not like change all the time, but given the rate of teachers' absences, it happens. Our children are hurting inside the walls of most schools and they do not know what to do with the hurt so they come to school and use it for a place to act out.
Over all most schools have the nicest staff, but a lot of the children are out of control. I just wish there was a way to bring prayer back in schools and some type of discipline.
The hardest part of the job is trying to get the children to see that you are here to help them.
The most enjoyable part of the job is meeting so many different children, being able to listen to their concerns and being able to talk with them knowing that they just need love as much as a good learning environment; someplace they can come to and feel safe.
