Re: My New Attitude

I quit my job today. Yep. Got into a rather unprofessional (I'm so ashamed and embarrassed about that part) shouting match with Queen Bee. I won't hide my knowledge. I won't kowtow to someone just because. I do know what I'm talking about. I do know how to treat children and how to be developmentally appropriate with them. I will not deal with drama in the work place. I am a professional, for heaven's sake. Not a jr. high girl with nothing better to do. So if you think I have an attitude with you, bring it to me. Don't go muttering about me behind my back. Because I WILL call you out on it. I will tell you to talk to me directly. I will challenge you. Don't assume that just because I am 4'11" and 130 lbs, that I am a lightweight. I'm a whiz with verbal sparring. And I'm qualified for a lot more than what I do. I choose to teach in a private Christian daycare setting because I have a passion for teaching... and because I don't like the paperwork of the public school system... :) So don't give me crap and expect me to roll over and take it. I have options. And I will exercise them. So bleh!

So, tomorrow Hethan and I will sleep in. Then we will do some laundry. And then we'll get started in on our summer! YAY summer! I was just helping the director out by working in the daycare this summer anyhow! I'm not even supposed to work summers, since I am a Pre School teacher, and the Pre School class ended last week. So meh!

Oh Lord. I lost my temper. Oh my. Oh dear. Should I go back to swallowing those emotions? Oh dear. Well, the only thing to do now is to pray and ask for forgiveness for my hot headedness, and to enjoy my summer! :):):):) Freckles, UNITE!! A tan I will have!

well, except for doin the shouting ( you are right, tsk, tsk, shame, being very quiet and deliberate makes a loud statement also, and makes the other person look childish),you stand up for yourself daughter! I think it is not good to hold things in and get rolled over and stabbed in the back, but y'know, i used to weep and wail over the fact that I could never come out with a quick witted come-back,(I was kinda like that commercial where there is time lag)? well, I guess the good thing about that is I don't have to apologize for my tongue quite as often...know what i mean? I am quite excited that ya'll are coming home for a bit. be careful driving.... forever and always my daughter you'll be....

I had a similar situation at my job once. Unfortunately, I too acted unprofessionally. Unlike you though, I didn't get the chance to walk away proudly with my head held high and on my own terms. So I applaud your courage!

I am really impressed at how you make decisions and follow them thru. even if it didn't turn out quite as you expected.
sounds like you are having fun running.
and I am really jealous that you have a whole summer off...maybe i should have been a teacher ;)
