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.

She had another tantrum this week when her boss told her that I was going to be taking on some ADMINISTRATIVE TASKS. ADMINISTRATIVE TASKS. Who doesn't want to give up administrative tasks?!

My boss told me this is untenable - I said, I was going to use that word as well.

Short story - I'm job hunting... again. I hope I can find something internally but also a former boss of mine should be posting a position soon and she said I'm her first choice. I'm jumping at whatever opportunity presents itself first because this is bananas.

.... I work at a well known university with a prestigious reputation.

Oh, the joy of (formerly) holding a job in the political sector. EVERYONE you work with has their job because of their political connections. No Need to have ANYONE rub your face in that fact; we're all here due to the same lucky accident of Who We Know...

....unless one is a Boss/Supervisor. THEN throwing tantrums is The Way to show You're In Charge. I quit my job due to a bosswoman of ill-mannered temper. God love her, a year later she died of a brain tumor. ABSOLUTELY explains her bossy on-the-job demeanor.

I understand all the reasons, but I hate that I donít get to go to IEP meetings for my students, especially my blind student. Iím with him 5 of the 7 hours of our day. Iím in charge of implementing everything with him, Iím the one that trains him for his work based learning internship, Iím his job coach, I teach his career prep and life skills, etc. I see all of his struggles and wins up close and personal, and I hear/witness every fear that stands between him and independence. Iím am their best source of information and have the clearest picture of what he can actually do.
