{Witty Wacky Wednesday} My Working Life in a Nutshell

February 2, 2011

Please watch this.  Sadly, I can relate to virtually everything this woman says in this video.  I’ve had this type of conversation so many times.  I wish I could respond the way this prof responds.  It cracks me up so much that it’s just sad.

  1. As someone who works in higher ed, I have to agree: that was sadly hilarious and accurate.

  2. This is hilarious! The only thing I can’t relate to is the huge office.

    Humorously sad. Hang in there. A few students are like you were/are – serious, considerate, dedicated and loving of excellence.

    • I try to remember to teach to those students so the bad ones don’t ruin it for everyone, but there are definitely tough days.

  4. Oh my god, that’s my life! I don’t have an office since I teach public high school, but that is my last week in a complete nutshell!

    • Are you teaching in Lowell, MA or close? We must talk if so.

      • No, but one of my best friends does! She actually grew up in Lowell! I teach in Western Maine and did a year in Providence. It’s pretty darn similar all the way around. What would you like to compare notes on? 😉

  5. HYSTERICAL! I have to admit this video is one of the reasons why I didn’t consider academia. I don’t think I have the patience to be an educator whether it be on the elementary or university level. You are are a saint. 🙂
