So if you could believe it, this year, the state of Illinois issued me an education license in my trade. That’s right, I am a teacher. I’m a role model. I’m also a fantasy. (Get it, teacher/student? haha). Actually, I worked pretty hard for this and really love what I do.
Obviously, in this country that we call free, is a dumb law prohibiting you from repeating information about another student to anyone. Makes sense, I will admit it. It’s called FERPA (Family Education Right to Privacy Act). I just don’t like it.
The problem is that it’s a law! I hear so much crazy shit that it eats my soul that I cannot tell someone the gossip. I live for the moments when a situation concerns two or more teachers because then we can talk about it! The law doesn’t say I can’t talk shit, just that I can’t give information to another party. If other people were involved in the incident, I’m golden!
Thankfully I have an amazing man at home to share all these crazy stories with or I would explode, and be fired. In fact, if there is ever going to be a reason that I would be fired from my job, I think this will be it. I catch myself at least 5 times a day talking about things that I shouldn’t. It’s in my nature to gossip. It makes the day go so much quicker. 🙂
