Default Teachers / School Admin Rant

It's not all teachers but the majority so don't get your panties in a bunch.

The place I work at is the lockbox for Scripps Spelling Bee (yes, the one on ESPN) and we process all the incoming payments to join the compitition.

I know that teachers aren't responsible for the children and it should be the parents but at the same time I hold teachers to a higher standard then most smucks and I think teacher in the most part hold themselves to a higher standard as well for the greater good of the children.

So why when you have something that means a lot to children with a cut off date of Oct15 you would think they would get it in on time . . . or so I would have thought untill the massive amount of idiot teachers that sent their paperwork in after the freekin deadline.

I wish Scripps didn't want their money so I could send them back with a big sorry but you're an irresponsible ass who missed the deadline and you're poor kids are going to suffer. . . good luck explaining to your superiors why you can't read the section that says mail the paperwork before Oct.15t


So anywhoo . . . no wonder our school suck with some teachers out there that can't even mail a check on time. If they can't follow that simple task why would I think that they are doing a good job teaching our young Americans??



Thoughts?? GO!!

Your place posted that deadline knowing that people will be late. That is why they are still accepting payments and apps. The real deadline is next friday. didnt you get the memo?

Nope, I didn't see a TPS report with it so I just throw those away.

Why is it necessarily the teachers fault? Have you ever had to do a check requisition thru a public entity such as a school? School administators run on their own clock/calendar.

Because most is signed and dated by Ms _____________ Grade what ever teacher.

I understand your point but Gzzzz . . . you wouldn't believe the amount of bitching by my staff because we are still recieving a butt load of LATE ENROLLMENTS

The majority did come on time but I'm shocked by the amount that have come and were postmarked after the oct. 15th

Edit: Just in case you haven't looked at a calender recently it's the 23rd of October!

being a teacher in a public school I know getting a check is not as easy as it sounds. There are several times when I have all my paper work in on time then it sits on an admin's desk for two weeks. It happens all the time, now I am sure there are teachers that are not doing the right thing as well. But a lot of times the paper work is sitting on someones desk waiting to be oked.
