Das ist da

The time has come. We have worked for free for too long. The economical crisis is molding our society and the leftists in power are screwing with us all. Companies and stores are closing down and too many people are jobless. Economists predict worse crisis for the next years.

Down at my job, I have been censored, disrespected, judged by my political view, or my teaching methods which have been designed by me because it is my own business. Anyhow, people think just because they pay the school tuition, they can come in and determine our price, the grades, the school plan, the setting, dismiss teachers who they hate... as they owned the place.

I am definitely not a happy teacher in Brazil due to the lack of appreciation in my profession and in my professional skills. I am not sure whether I can put up with it any longer.😓😫😖

Besides making little money, being a teacher or a professor in Brazil can bring us all really down.

For some mysterious reason, authorities are not respected figures down here. The Police are not respected down here. Years of dictatorship (64~85) helped  build a negative image of our Brazilian military.  Brazilian teachers, for instance, have zero respect from students, their parents, and even from the faculty itself.

I am Brazilian. I come from a line of teachers. I grew up listening to horrible stories of back talks, classroom disrespectful scenes, harassments, name calling, real "slaps on the face" as Brazilian would put it.

I've been an English teacher interruptedly  for 21 years. I've gone through much... sometimes more than I can take. I wish I were well treated by having the most beautiful occupation ever.
