I'm a parent.

I'm a teacher.

I'm a person with BP2.

If you were my kid's teacher, and I came across almost anything you've said here about your marital issues and given how you react to people, I'd be in the principal's office pulling my kid from your class, if not the school completely.

If you were my colleague, I'd be very concerned and keeping a close eye on you.

At the moment, you do not seem stable enough to be in the classroom.



That is your opinion. My therapist, my shrink and my principals (I teach at two different schools) all disagree with you.

It is somewhat common for people to write things that they would never say in person.

One country singer even wrote a song about this. It is called, "So much Cooler Online". Basically he says a bunch of stuff about himself that is NOTHING like he is in real life . . . people love the song because most can relate to it.

I don't foam at the mouth. I don't yell and scream at school. I get at least 50 hugs a day from kids at school. I get along well with both my peers and my students. Everything is fine at school. I recently got evaluated by my main principal and passed with 'flying colors'.

She has observed me teaching at least 5 times this year and has never left me anything but positive feedback.

It is not uncommon for a person to do fine at work, yet have a hard time at home.

Thank you for the concern, but at this time, it is unwarranted.
