Teacher's viral Facebook post brings to light the abuse she faces at the hands of students


Teaching is one of the most important professions. Without good teachers, children everywhere wouldn't have the tools they need to succeed in the world. Teachers are consistently undervalued and underpaid for the immense impact they have. And there is another side to teaching that we rarely hear about, which was brought to our attention by teacher Annie Demczak in a now-viral Facebook post.

In her post, Annie explains that she loves teaching but that teachers are constantly told to suck it up when it comes to experiencing violence at the hands of their students. Not only are teachers responsible for educating our kids, but it also seems they are responsible for absorbing the brunt of their bad behavior and letting it slide, no matter the physical or emotional toll it has on them. And that's not OK.
