No one said you have to do this job. Teaching is a calling NOT a job. You hate it? QUIT! There are plenty of people who WANT to teach. They like even LOVE kids. It’s NOT required but it helps if you don’t loathe kids and talk down to them.
Please, I love my job. I want to continue loving it but you’re making it really really hard.

"I am uncomfortable with my student having any accounts like this. My kids are not even allowed to use the computer at home."

It will help you sort actual fact from biased misinformation. I wrote this for Bubblews - a website that pays writers by the page click.
