Dance like no one is watching; dance duty like no one is paying you...

Here's a question for ya:

Why don't we get paid for dance duty? They don't occur during our contracted hours of Monday through Friday, but on Saturday nights. Saturday nights are my time. I need a stipend. Why not? I'm there to babysit, right? Then give me five bucks an hour. That's five dollars multiplied by twelve hundred students. I'd split that with the five other teachers. If they don't want to do that, then have the parents up there with their kids. I'm sorry to sound so harsh, but hobo teachers have lives too. Saturday nights are big dump nights for restaurants.

Would there be anything worse than grading 150 essays one weekend and then going back up to the school that night and watching all your students dancing it up? You would begin to despise them as they would morph into their grades.

"Ooh look, 'D-' is dancing with 'C+'. I thought she was dating 'Incomplete'--scandalous!"
