Education must change now!

This what I believe is so wrong with how we are learning and teaching the next generation. Come on people can we not fix this problem? Let's at least start with letting me teach enrichment math to children of all different ages who need it. I am good at it and not allowed to do it. There is something very wrong with this picture. It is enough to make you sick and sick it has made me. I am in the hospital and nobody can tell me what is wrong with me. I will tell you what I think. 

My heart is broken and my brain is bleeding in response.

Home sick

I feel nearly delirious. I do not want to eat until I get my old job back. I am good at teaching sixth grade math. I am good at teaching enrichment math. I am not so good at planning ahead or understanding what people say when they say something I am not expecting. I have to pause and think and process and maybe even think again about it later.

This is my 3 ring girl who works in Dr. Theo's office. Write to me if you think I have any reason not to feel totally humiliated that my job is now being done by the woman who took ever for me while I had surgery and a woman who was my assistant for a year? Neither one ever asks me what I did or what to do when...

I am dust to sweep under the carpet. Hide me away!

I'm a little lamb that's lost in the woods

Someone to watch over me. I feel so pathetic. I wish I were a positive person who could always see the bright side of things. I am too sick to go to work. I feel like I have been run over by a truck. I want some sheep to look after. Maybe if I had a flock, I would feel better. Not zombie Lamb Chop though. He might eat what little brains I have left.

I am good at seeing the best in children.
I am good at brainstorming. I am good at drumming up excitement and enthusiasm for math.
I am good at making up ways to make learning fun.
I am great at teaching the advanced math students because their pace and interest determines the route.
I am good at learning ideas from books to try in my classroom.
I am good at advocating for students and parents.
I am good at writing, this list format blog entry not being a prime example.
