Teacher is a part of the "Self-Centered" collection. This image was created as a direct response to the stresses and frustrations of being a teacher.
Education is something I have a deep passion for, but after 5 years in the classroom I can say with confidence that teaching is not something that I love to do. The system is fatally broken and failing and I’m tired. I felt like an island and everyday the ocean seemed more and more vast. I was constantly pulled in every direction and no matter what I did it was never enough. I could go on at length about all that is flawed with education as a system, profession, and culture, but I’ll keep it brief. It’s all stupid.
