    I Will Be Fired In June

    Hi everyone, If you're not familiar with my story, search "Confessions" for "Fired and Suicidal." I finished grad school in 2008, became a teacher, and this is the second time since then that I've ended up working for some jerky principals who didn't see my value to their...

    My Ex-Boss Is Badmouthing Me

    I was let go from my teaching job in June 2012. Since then, many teachers have been fired from that school district for made-up reasons, as I was. Yesterday, I *finally* got a job offer, but it was *thousands* less than I was looking for, because the administrator offering it...

    I'Ve Been Fired 4 Times In My Entire Life

    You probably think I'm insane. If you've read my profile, you'll see that I am kind of crazy. But who isn't? The first time I was fired, I was accused of having a bad attitude. Damn right I had a bad attitude... They forced me to work overtime without paying me for 6 months...

    Today I raised my voice to someone at work.

    I was so mad. A very important gate on campus was supposed to be unlocked and someone locked it again. So I went to the office and really got in some faces about why it was locked again. I feel bad because the woman is very nice, but at the same time, I feel like why do I...
