I heard a rumor today.
Someone Googled my name and apparently found a piece of writing in which I disparaged students and made it clear that I hate my job.
So I Googled myself to see if I could find the incriminating piece of writing.
I can’t find it. Really, I’ve tried looking, and I can’t find it!
(If you do, please let me know. But privately, because I don’t want other people to know where to find it!)
Was it my essay I wrote five years ago about how hard it is to be single? Or my blog post I wrote last year about how hard it is to be single?
Was it the essay I wrote about working in a broken education system? Or was it the blog post I wrote about how hard I work and how exhausted it’s making me?
Was it my thesis?
Was it the State of Utah Special Education reform document that my name is on as a collaborator?
This very blog doesn’t even appear in Google searches.
But just to set the record straight: I have really great kids this year, and I most definitely do not hate my job.
When I worked at Taco Bell? I hated that job. The one day I worked at Shopko at 5 AM? Hated that job too. But this job? No way.
Are we clear?
