Just Venting

Tuesday, February 10, 2015

OK so I need a three minute vent!!!

I teach Adult students, they are just starting the program and there are some Debbie downers that just want to do the bare minimum. I just don't understand! They chose to take this course, no one says they have to be here. They are paying for this but yet it is just so much work!! It's to hard.. I was up so late, complain, complain, complain.

No complaining allowed, if there is an honest problem or concern lets find a solution that makes it better for everyone. But some people just want to complain for the sake of having something to say!

This is such a great career and an exciting time, the negative people bring down the people that want to be excited and it is sad to watch. emoticon

    I was on the other end of education - teaching the little ones - on occasion it was the adults (co-teachers & parents), in that most wonderful world, who were the complainers.

    I am going to be praying for the students in your classes, to have a change of heart & see the opportunity that is before them. And for you to have have what you need to reign them in until they change their ways.

    God bless!

    What kind of class are you teaching? You might want to keep in mind that for at least some of your students just getting to the class is a big accomplishment. Maybe you could start the class with a minute of meditation, asking everyone to think of something positive in their life.
