    Too much paperwork, too many kids out of control with no parental support, too much paperwork, no time to teach it seems, standardized testing and pay tied to the test scores.

    Administration and teacher support. Everything else that teachers have to deal with has become far more important than the actual teaching.

    Just got off the phone with my cousin after having a similar conversation. She was just telling me how happy I sounded and was glad I quit because I am sounding like the cousin she knew before teaching. Everyone, including myself, missed that girl. The kids deserve that girl.It's the adults in education that tamper with that.
