Teachers Leaving Profession

Although I’m not a teacher, I felt compelled to share this article on why teachers are leaving the profession.  After all, the blog is a “solace for the overworked” and that isn’t just limited to just one profession but all of them.  The article mentions the four reasons as being salary, student behavior, lack of support and testing.  If you are a teacher I would love to hear your feedback concerning this article.  Do you feel the author nailed it or are there other things to consider? If teachers are leaving, where does that leave the younger generation? YIKES.

Another rough day at the office

Let me start off by saying that since I woke up today, I have had a splitting headache that won’t quit.  Reason why……..job stress.  I was hoping today would be a quiet peaceful kind of day especially since it’s the weekend; however, I have been putting out fires and on my phone for most of the day.  I think to myself, is this really worth the aggravation?  The simple answer is no.  I drive myself crazy for an organization where I’m not appreciated or properly compensated for the amount of time I put in. Entrepreneurship looks better and better as time goes on.  Don’t get me wrong, entrepreneurship is far from easy, but if you are going to be stressed out and aggravated about something, it might as well be something that you are passionate about.  That being said, check out this article about how to build a business why you are still working on your job.  Good read.

Learn to take the Good with the Bad

Today was one of those days where, I actually had a good day.  Maybe the stars were aligned just right or maybe I had had so many bad days, I was naturally due for a good day.  To be honest, on most days, I just want to walk into my boss’ office and tell her that I quit, but today my glass was half full rather than half empty.  I guess I just have to learn to take the good, with  the bad.  I could use a lot more good days moving forward but for now I guess I just have to take it one day at a time.

I have attached an article to this post that has tips on turning your bad day in the workplace around.  Enjoy and let me know if it was helpful.

Sincerely,

Big Girl

Welcome

Welcome to my blog entitled: Working Woes

I created this website to be an outlet and a resource for those of you who experience grief in the work place.  As many of you already know, the workplace can be a pretty tumultuous/treacherous place.  You don’t know who you can trust or if you are about to step on a land mine.  The person whom you vent to can be the very person that is running into your boss’ office telling him/her all of your business/ “spilling all of your tea”.  This forum is a safe haven to vent your frustration without it getting back to your boss and or co-workers, and the articles will seek to help you get a better grip on the woes you experience in the office and how to overcome them.

Sincerely,

Big Girl
