I'm so tired of paperwork....I feel like all I do in public school is paperwork....I must have killed 5-10 trees already this year with the paperwork I have to fill out....this is not including the worksheets and other materials I use to teach health. I'm talking about random forms, county standards, etc. that public teachers are required to almost fill out on a daily basis....
Well I'm pretty anal and uptight when it comes to paperwork so I usually work on things weeks in advance so they are turned in ahead of time. But it seems like every time I finish one pack of paperwork to turn comes another pile creeping up and mysteriously hopping on my desk....I guess the county office and administrators do think we have enough to do during our planning period and we must not be busy teaching!! I guess they don't think it takes a lot of time to plan a lesson for 104 students or to educate/keep the interest of high school students for each hour and a half long class????
I guess they think I can just throw an informative/productive lesson together right before the kids arrive. Since that is the case, please keep piling on the random paperwork that no one looks at and kill more trees!!! :(

What would happen if you boycotted the paperwork?? Tell them THEY lost it.

I think the county probably is under the impression that you have LOTS of time on your hands in between teaching, grading papers, attending meetings, PTA, and oh yea, your own life responsibilities! Paperwork smaperwork. Maybe they should start doing it all digitally through email so they could have a HUGE pile of emails in their inboxes every day. lol

LOL I had to crack up at how many trees you think you killed this year :)

At least you stay on top of all the paperwork,that's one good thing.
