ROCKWALL, TX (WCMH) — A fed up teacher’s post about disrespectful students and their parents is going viral.
On March 28, Julie Marburger, a teacher in Texas, had had enough.
She posted several photos on Facebook, including a lengthy post describing an experience with a parent who criticized her for disciplining a student child.
“Teachers are some of the most kind and giving people I have ever met, yet they get treated so disrespectfully from all sides. Most parents can’t stand to spend more than a couple hours a day with their kid, but we spend 8 with yours and 140 others just like him. Is it too much to ask for a little common courtesy and civil conversation?” Marburger wrote in the post.
Marburger says she has always dreamed of being a teacher, but just after two years in the profession, she’s already looking for a career change.
“This is almost all I hear from other teachers as well, and they are leaving the profession in droves. There is going to be a teacher crisis in this country before too many more years has passed unless the abuse of teachers stops,” she wrote on the post.
