I like kids!

"eh" and "psych" = inside jokes

I teach high school. People are always, like, “Oh, how could you ever do that? Those kids are so ______.” Fill in the blank with whatever negative adjective you want. I’ve heard it all. The thing is, though, that my job does stink sometimes. I do get frustrated. I do see irresponsibility, bitterness, immaturity, and a general attitude of apathy. The problem is, I see it in adults. I see it in so many adults inside and outside of the school building. That’s what makes my job tough. The kids? Give me the kids any day!
