At the beginning of the week, I was despondent. One of my student's parent
Being judged without having the chance to "prove" myself as a concerned, rigorous, and imaginative teacher really caused me to wonder what else was I qualified to do...If they don't change the guidelines, I have 6 more years until I can retire; if I'm going to make parents miserable, I need to make a career change.
This is what I found I can do
- radar-gun tester (Hey, I do speed
sometimesmost of the time, so perhaps I could find employment with the police, where I race along the highway, and they see if their radar guns are calibrated correctly...)
- unrhythmic, anti-stripper (I have no dancing ability, but I could be paid to put clothes back on...)
- earplug tester (If the sounds of my snoring do not penetrate the earplugs, they are highly effective.)
- Nutella spokesperson (It's heaven on a spoon. Or, if you want to eat it in a more socially acceptable way, put some on a croissant.)
