I work in a local high school in special education. I have a student that threatens my life with regularity. The rest of my job is a dream, and most of the time I can’t believe they pay me for this. Today I am hardcore believing it and believing they should pay me WAY. MORE.

My late MIL had the same problem. Her arms and legs were broken several times, not on purpose (we hope!). There's a special place in heaven for those who work in Special Ed!

Working from home — deadlines.

Teaching — getting students to think outside the box.

The woman I work with is a NIGHTMARE; a pure drama queen who literally threw a whole tantrum last week. A GROWN WOMAN THREW A TANTRUM AT WORK. And, she's in a "leadership" position. Praise be that she isn't my boss.

My husband taught very emotionally disturbed teens for 5 years. I think the only way he got through it was that he and his aide were big men; their bosses were no help in that horrible job. Women and smaller men would leave after a few months because the kids would attack them viciously and they weren't removed from the program, as they were supposed to be.

Four of his students ended up in the jail where I was teaching (I was so thrilled to see their names on my roster) but they acted so badly right off that they were soon moved to higher-security CIs.

I never have been able to understand how people like that keep their jobs. Iíve always felt that HR has never done enough to force people like that out of their positions and/or jobs. Itís people that make or break a job. People cause stress, not the job itself. People like her shouldnít be employed.

It's definitely been.....interesting and it's gotten to the point that I regularly consider if it's worth upsetting her before making a decision about how to handle something. At the end of the day, it's just a job for me; it's not my life. I am going to do my work and go home.
