Wars and Rumors of Wars

I heard a rumor today.

About me.

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?

  1. Soooooooo, what you're saying is, you don't hate your job? I'm still a little confused. Honestly, does anyone think anyone is in education for the money?
    I mean, really.
