I love that I spent five minutes of class arguing with two students over which requiem is superior: Faure’s or Brahms’.
Sometimes I forget how cool my job is.
Oh, and while I have you here:
For the record, the district’s position that they offered us a 4.5% increase in our contract is misleading and erroneous. I didn’t get into teaching for the money, that’s for sure, but the continued lack of respect for what I do (reflected not only in salary and benefits, but also in comments to the press) is infuriating.
