On my summer vacation I watched a lot of Law & Order: SVU, cross-stitched, and was the oldest counselor at a summer camp, making $10/hour while little rich kids complain about their free pizza and elaborate field trips. I am a teacher.
Yesterday I spent about 2 hours working on 1 lesson plan— not even a particularly involved one— and I’m still not done because I need to make all of my ELL modifications. I’m just sayin’ this teacher shit takes time. Even after 5 years.
Man, remember when Todd Akin said that a woman’s body can stop it’s self from being impregnated if “legitimately” raped? People joke about that now but it’s a real thing that a real person really said and that’s bananas. I just remembered it and felt that people needed to remember that that was a real thing that really happened.
I like how all of these 11-17 year olds are just going to school with vampires and werewolves and giant spiders and vicious three-headed dogs in their backyard, yet they need a permission slip with an iron-clad parent/guardian signature to go have a harmless butterbeer at the nearby wizarding village.
