Worst Part of Teaching

Hands down, the worst part of teaching is knowing that you cannot protect your students from everything in life. Whether you witness the abuse, the marks of abuse, it’s confided in you, or you hear it third-hand, knowing that your student is in danger, reporting to CPS, and worrying about their non-school life is the absolute worst. Days like this almost make me wish I worked a job where all I worried about was impersonal data and faceless corporate bigwigs.
