The Teacher Applicant

After being interviewed by  the school administration,

The teaching prospect said, “Let me see if I’ve got this right:

You want me to… Go into that room with all those kids,

1. Correct their disruptive behavior,
2. observe  them for signs of abuse,
3. monitor their dress habits,
4. censor their  T-shirt messages,
5. and instill in them a love for learning.

You want me to..

6 – check their backpacks for weapons,
7 – wage war on  drugs and sexually transmitted diseases, and
8 – raise their sense of self  esteem and personal pride.

You want me to….

 9 – teach them  patriotism and good citizenship, sportsmanship and
      fair play, and
10 – how to register to vote,
11 – balance a checkbook, and
12 – apply for a job.

You want me to:

13 – check their heads for lice,
14 – recognize signs of anti-social behavior, and
15 – make sure that they all pass the state exams.

You also want me to:

16 – provide them with an equal education regardless of their
       handicaps, and
17 – communicate  regularly with their parents in English and Spanish
       by letter, telephone,  conferences, email, homework hotline, web
       page, midterm newsletters, and  report card.

You want me to do all this with a piece of chalk, a  blackboard, a
bulletin board, a few books, a big smile, and a starting  salary that
qualifies me for food stamps.

You want me to do all this and then you tell me…….


Are you nuts!

(Goes to show as a nation we are also morally bankrupt)
