I teach, which is the main part of my job, but I am also the programmer at my school, which means that I make the teachers' schedules, the students' schedules, examine data, process report card grades and transcripts, etc. And, well, I hate it. I started doing it because no one was doing it, and we needed someone, and I was good at it, and the principal, who was in charge of the schedule then, was not. But I've got a new principal, and she does not value my opinion or the position at all. And if I'm not going to be listening to about the things I am an expert in (such as what sort of schedules we can have), then I don't know why we should do it. --- "To truly live, one must first be born." ~ Evan [aX] Paper Mario Social: The Safe Haven of GameFAQs.

Are you sure this is even your job? I mean, I haven't heard of people being hired as both a teacher and a system administrator at a middle school.

Can you just say "I took this on because we needed a stopgap, and that was X years ago. I am burning out with both of these positions"? --- Willis, it seems like every other time you post, I need to look up a word that's in the OED or Urban Dictionary but not both. -Mimir

Well, I mean, the problem of "if I don't do it, no one will," is still relevant. As a school we don't have the money to hire someone separate to do it. At least, not without firing one of my fellow teachers. --- "To truly live, one must first be born." ~ Evan [aX] Paper Mario Social: The Safe Haven of GameFAQs. (Board 2000083)
