    I actually support the teachers here, and also the theory that it was more likely 2 tv shows, rather than movies (kids are easily confused)

    I'm not judging anyone but the fact is that she watched two movies during learning time because teachers had to work on their reports. No matter where I work and when and whichever sector is, I will not put on movies for kids just because I need to finish my reports. Never ever.
    I have friends who are teachers and I know how hard they work. It's a couple of teachers who give the profession a bad name.

    A whole different thread but as a primary teacher we cover all KLA's but only for a class of one which still works out to quite a workload. Plus when I was teaching high school I had waaaaay more NCT time and less duties than as a primary. Could have just been the school though??

    Thank you for that

    I've seen my three boys through a lot of years of school 23, 19 and Mr 16 still in year 11, I have known so many beautiful teachers along the way, been friends with a few as well, met a lot of parents along the way too, some are just never satisfied, must be gutting when your a good teacher doing your very best.

    Very glad some of you ladies have defended yourselves, it's been an eye opener.

Why can't they do it during school hours without interrupting kids' learning or at home? Even if it was during the Music period, how responsible is it to let kids watch movies as they are lagging behind in finishing their reports?
    Would be interested to know the movies and how long the session between recess and lunch is.

    As others have pointed out, between recess and lunch is 2 hours max, in my school it is 1hr 45 mins.

    I am so sad reading this thread as it really shows how poorly teachers can be treated. I absolutely adore my sons teacher this year, its his first year in formal schooling and I couldnt of picked a better teacher for him. She is such a lovely lady it makes me sad to think she might be treated poorly! Such wonderful things she has done for my son!

    Im def not meaning to take away from what work load any teacher does . They all need to put in the hard yards outside of school. And it sucks balls. Not many people realise! Class time essentially should be class time tho?

    You don't understand why kids are tired in November?Really? And you've just completed a teaching degree? Sorry OP, I was prepared to give you the benefit of the doubt, but now two things strike me from your posts a) completely over the top and a complete overreaction on your part, and b) you just don't know kids at all do you? Your child may be fine, but lots of kids are totally over school at this time of year. You will no doubt find out the hard way when you start working.

I'm totally okay with end of the year movie, concert, dance, etc. but at this time of the year giving report writing as the reason? Totally irresponsible...not only in teaching but any other profession.

    I think you *are* judging others! It's great that you feel that way about yourself. Chances are though that you will do something in your teaching life you pledged never to do. I have. We don't know the circumstances that led to the events of the OP's situation, but I can think of half a dozen just off the top of my head.

    I hope when you end up doing something in your job that you pledged you wouldn't that you are more forgiving of yourself. And that others are more forgiving of you.
