I'll have to say, I was a bit depressed going in to my classroom today. I've played the scenario over in my head many times. They actually recommend that teachers take aggressive action now.
Mr. Feis, holy sh!t!!!!!! Laid down his life. What an incredible thing to do, but I'm sure it never occurred to him to do anything else. It's a no-brainer, your first responsibility is to protect your kids, just as if they were your own. We should expect nothing less from our teachers.

Primarily it's the republican congressional responsibility not under-paid teachers , to protect American citizens but they are too busy padding their off shore bank accounts with NRA bribes... I'm waiting for the day when some armed psycho walks into congress and unloads a few AR-15 clips into our upstanding republicans...

I have been trying to improve my grammar skills and mentioned something about teachers earlier today. This is what I see. The language teacher speaks properly, while the physical education coach curses up a storm. The band teacher is a jerk and the the social studies teacher just incompetent. Therefore at the end of the day, who do students have to look up to as our example of how to communicate properly?
Like every profession, some teachers are there to help people learn while others are there for only a pay check. Proper evaluations of teachers to weed out incompetent ones is what's needed.

Regardless of your partisan position, it's some pretty psycho sh|t to post up those last two comments! You two seriously should be ashamed (and probably locked up).

Look in a mirror and get a grip! Obviously the crazies are not all in "the other party."

ive always taken the lack of a vet shooting up the congress as proof positive that our country just doesn't produce a decent person in uniform...

LOL, my abs have never been that ripped but my girth would make me an excellent human shield for my students. ;)

Called in sick for work today to shield my students from my viral menace.

I admit it, all the problems in education are my fault. Don't worry I retire in 63 working days after faking it for 33 years.

Hocking June 2 for me. Turning 60 in May and retirement 3 weeks later. I get to retire a bit early thanks to NKE stocks. 26 years of teaching English as a second language and 5 or 6 years of Social Studies. With a few other subjects and special programs mixed in.

Reilly- not hard at :)


Time to work wine industry or something a bit until my kid graduates high school, old dad here.

1. Teachers are the most underpaid workforce in America! This is more a condition of American values than anything else.
2. A large percentage of American teachers are misplaced in the profession.
3. In order to be an effective teacher and transitional figure, you must possess the following:
 a belief that every human being has a human potential they have not yet reached.
 a belief in yourself that you you can make a difference in the lives of young persons.
 an unabiding distaste for simple answers to complex problems, and a commitment to Instilling in young persons a thirst gor knowledge and new experiences.

I fully agree. I am fortunate to know a number of truly fine teachers - teachers that are sought out by their former students years after graduation. Teachers whose former students run up to them in town and take selfies. Teachers whose students thank them for making a positive contribution to their success 10, 15, 20 years after their graduation.

What makes them so valuable? They teach you what you need to know to pass the class, but also instill a life-long thirst for knowledge.
Teachers like this are worth far more than any school board would be willing to pay or could pay.

uhhhh....that picture WAS "waking to school" for black people in the mid 20th century.

Maybe "walking to school" 100 years from when that image was taken, would show young people moving from their kitchen with a snack to a section of a room set up for a virtual classroom.
