Not all of them ,of course, but the ones who like to either put us down, act like they know it all, blame us for stuff we have no control over, etc. What is their deal? I get so tired of hearing how easy we have it compared to them or how much more money we make (which we sure don't in the school system!). I don't see them treating the speech therapists or guidance counselors this way so why is it ok to treat us with a lack of respect? Most of the teachers are nice and supportive but every school as some of "those" ones. I just wondered why they are that way. And why does it not bother them to bring a kid into us from the playground with a very minor scraped knee as we're obviously eating lunch and feel perfectly justified in just walking away stating here comes some more like we're being lazy taking a few minutes to eat a bite of food. Can the school not function if the nurse isn't constantly available? Why does everyone think it's perfectly fine to tell us what to do or how to do it? When did this ever become ok? What are ways you have tried to deal with these certain ones and what has worked? I find my claws start coming out when this happens and getting angry does NOT make the situation better! I can handle the clueless teachers that truly believe every one of their students could be ill and need to see the nurse every day (in case it's something life-threatening) better than these mean ones!!
