Is there anything more soul sucking than filling out an on-line application for a large corporation?

First, you need to register for the site.  One that I looked at today required a 12 character password.

Then, even if you import your shit in from Linkedin, you need to go through every box and reformat it.

If they are using it as weed-out, I think they are weeding out people who value their time.


ARRRGGGG!

Aaalllright, the rant thread ~! Good for the sou~l!

I feel like I need to bitch about something, but the only thing I can spit out atm is I don't want to teach my 2nd graders today. It's rainy, and they're going to be moody.

If it makes you feel slightly better, December has exams so chances are very high that some classes will be cancelled.

Heck, I only have classes one day next week due to midterms.  Basically another holiday for me, albeit deskwarming but 'ey.

My school made students take their mid-terms right before Chuseok. xD

Was it distracting?

I mean, if none of your students made a comment, I can understand your rant/vent.  However, I can only imagine if I or others were to do the same the kids would be screaming/whining about wanting hot chocolate, which detracts from the lesson.

Regardless, it IS poor form.

Water is OK...not constantly sipping it, like a bad habit/tick, but a couple times at opportune moments would be OK, especially if you had a sore throat.

That said, your vp is right.

i drink coffee during class sometimes. the conversation always goes like this

student: teacher, coffee?
me: yes. do you like coffee?
student: yes
me: ok

no doubt in a 35 degree room without aircon, because the principal is too cheap to turn it on outside of 3-4 weeks a year.

I drink tea and coffee during my classes all the time. I even offer some to my coTs.

Never heard a word about it. I admit I'd get miffed if I did because wtf.

I was told not to drink coffee in front of the kids. Like, WTF. Teachers around the world, for centuries, have been doing this. It's part of being a teacher.
