Long holidays.
Work till 3.30

Anyone care to join in? Seeing as it's the current theme at the moment.

Thanks kim147. Needed to read a thread like this.

Ooh yes - why can't teachers train in their holidays - they get so many days off they should give up some of those.

they are childcare obviously too.

Clever teachers have Y6, thick teachers have reception and Y1

They're all paedos who only work with children cos they fancy them

(This has really been said to my dh)

when you have more experience, can you work in secondary?

BatmanLovesIckyBarry Mon 30-Sep-13 20:36:19

They force children to wear uniform even though they don't.

They have no idea about the 'real world', probably because they spend their massive pensions in Harrods after they clock off at 3.30.

and those who can't teach, teach teachers grin
(moves it to the next level)

Never left school.

It was my Grandad who told my Mum teaching was so easy anyone could do it. She never forgot, and she was a teacher. sad. He could not have taught his way out of a paper bag, mind.

All the teachers at my child's school leave at 3:30pm and I know for a fact that every single one of them is just sitting on their arse drinking gin from that point onwards.

My uncle's wife's cousin twice removed is a teacher and he barely does any marking in the evening.

Don't teachers realise that there are other professions with long working hours, too?

Orangeanddemons Mon 30-Sep-13 20:38:10

Why can't they do their training days in the holidays

It's their fault that I'm being fined for taking my kids on holiday

Teachers shouldn't be allowed to strike, because of the kids [read free child care here]

Shallishanti Mon 30-Sep-13 20:39:35

such a nice job for a girl!
and you don't even need to bother going to university
(OK a bit old but genuinelky said to me...by a teacher)

Primary school teachers wouldn't last a day in a secondary school.

Catsnotrats Mon 30-Sep-13 20:41:54

You can never sack a teacher, but every single person working in the private sector can be sacked at the drop of the hat.

which is why dp spends months and thousands of pounds of legal advice to deal with each individual competency case in his private sector firm

Snow days. And all the red biros they can lay their hands on.

Anniegetyourgun Mon 30-Sep-13 20:43:13

My DIL is a teacher on maternity leave. I can't believe she's selfishly having her own baby when she had a whole load of taxpayers' money spent on her to be trained to look after other people's. Not, of course, that the training is worth... er... I think I tripped over my own argument there.

They set too much homework.

They don't set enough homework.

Preach about 'healthy lunches' then fill up on biscuits and chocolate in the staff room .

SilverApples Mon 30-Sep-13 20:49:49

They never do anything to stop the naughty children doing what hey want
They use threats and take away playtimes without a second thought
They shout all the time
They are too frightened to stand up to challenging children
They want all the children to be the same

Catsnotrats Mon 30-Sep-13 20:49:55

Teachers have no accountability for their performance.

motherinferior Mon 30-Sep-13 20:52:37

They dare to teach MY children when they are NQTs.

And/or they jobshare which will clearly endanger my children's entire future.

They give reading books at the WRONG LEVEL.

Spikeytree Mon 30-Sep-13 20:52:45

Trips are jollies.

motherinferior Mon 30-Sep-13 20:54:27

They don't challenge G&T children

They are all women which is why boys don't do well at school

candycoatedwaterdrops Mon 30-Sep-13 20:58:22

They are no entry requirements to university to be a teacher. Anyone can be a teacher, even with no GCSEs.

SilverApples Mon 30-Sep-13 21:01:10

been a SAHM for a decade? Fancy a nice little job that fits round the children?
Why not be a primary teacher

Littlefish Mon 30-Sep-13 21:03:05

They dare to get pregnant and go on maternity leave part of the way through the year. Why can't every teacher get pregnant in January, so they all start maternity leave in August.
