“I Don’t Answer To You Anymore”: Teacher Resigns During A Livestream, Passes On A Strong Message

There are more than 40 million search results on Google that give you ways to resign, which shows that people do care about how they handle this turning point in your CV record. There’s always a polite way, a ‘do’ and ‘don’t’ way, a creative way, and so on. Unfortunately, for some, the idea to step down from their job doesn’t creep in until it’s literally too late.

This dedicated woman from Indian Woods Middle School has spent more than twenty years being a model teacher to her gifted students. However, it all came to an end in her dramatic speech streamed live. “Teaching is like a bad marriage, you never get your needs met, but you stay in it for the kids,” stated Amanda Coffman to the board of education. Scroll down for the whole story about this brave teacher who decided she’d had enough of being a replaceable cog in a large education machine.

Now a former teacher, Amanda Coffman announced her resignation on live stream

During her speech, the woman got emotional but pulled herself together

In front of the whole school board, she stood up and announced that enough is enough

The reason for her resignation was the new three-year contract passed by the school board that she felt was trying to silence her

Let’s see what people had to say about it

The school board, after her speech was finished, showed not a lick of emotion. No shock, no awe. No "Thank you's" for her time. They simply and quickly announced their next speaker. What a bunch of high and mighty stalwarts! No wonder this teach quit!

The school board usually doesn't care if a teacher quits. They just go on to their next agenda without a second thought. It's sad that the school board treats a teacher quitting with such indifference.

Teachers and healthcare workers do the most important jobs and should be treated so much better. It's heartbreaking to see teachers forced into such a terrible position.

At least many in the the healthcare field are compensated fairly well. Doesn't give an excuse to treat them poorly, but it is easier to tolerate when you're at least making decent wages. Teachers almost never are.

Administrators in the bigger city areas would be in a right mess if all of their teacher's up and quit at once. And something like that could very well happen if they don't pull their collective heads out of their collective butts. Not only would they be scrambling for teachers, most likely unable to get any (after word spread that all the teachers walked out,) but they would also be facing lawsuits from parents and students disgruntled at the fact that teacher's warnings went unheeded when administration could have done something about it. More teachers need to resign and send a message that admin needs to start listening.

Or they could try to organise a strike.
