We have been meeting with several families to do some subjects together and all I can say is that I don’t know how teachers do it. Why do they go before a class of 20 or 30 students, most of whom don’t want to be there, many who don’t have paper or pencil much less homework with them, and try to teach to those remaining who may not be willing participants but are at least not disruptive? And then people want to evaluate you on your student’s achievement. I simply can’t imagine that seeing the “light bulb” going off in a couple of students is worth it all. Needless to say, I’m having some serious doubts about continuing our co-op next year.

I don’t think I would survive as a teacher
