    Re: Advice on Quitting
    Terry

    This is the last time I come to this board for advice. The hatred and bile
    on this board is disguisting.

    Are you even a teacher?

    I won't be checking this, don't bother to reply...the world could do without
    your brand of hostility.

    Good luck to all the teachers out there! Have a great year.
