McCarthy's Law #41

I can't get over how we can work in schools half a country apart, but when I read these comics I feel like we're in the same hallway!

That's such a true observation. I'm sure part of that is because the nature of all the respective jobs in education attract people with specific personality quirks, but I think that nationwide we are all feeling the same anxiety about the future of our profession. I would have to imagine that anyone who cares about teaching is feeling the same conflict I'm feeling right now: On one hand, this feels like a calling that must do; on the other, this feels like a sinking ship that must find a way off of. Leaves me conflicted and a bit angry at the powers that be.
