Take for instance this....
On Thursday, tucked away in our weekly memo from administration, was the notice that next Tuesday is McTeacher night. This is fundraiser that McDonald's hosts for local schools. It is a win-win situation for them. Neighborhood schools promote a night out at McDonald's, customers tell the server what school they want to support, and McDonald's gives a percentage of the receipts to the schools.
The memo went on to say that each grade level should organize a schedule to cover the 4pm - 8pm evening. Teachers are expected to meet, greet, and wipe tables off. Oh yeah--they can also
This is my frustration:
- It is Thursday and I am expected to do this on Tuesday. Anyone ever hear of notice? My calendar fills up pretty quickly and I already have a full evening on Tuesday.
- How is it fair that one grade-level might have 3 sections while another has 4 --not to mention student teachers.
- What other profession requires you to work all day and then spend hours being available to wipe tables without compensation.
