I teach Geometry. The high school I teach at is in a poor area and all the students lack basic skills. The behavior problems are through the roof. I'm told my classes are the best by the administration. Most of my students love me but it is a living hell trying to teach them to state standards. They talk and don't pay attention. This year the state is going to give me a grade based on the students' test scores. I'm stressed. I was getting students to construct a perpendicular bisector and asked two students what is half of 5. One said "1.5" and the other said ".5". I work so hard. I can't believe I am going to lose my job.
