Ok, ok. I'm sure they do get by SOME filters, but for all we know this teacher had an assistant or another teacher or the librarian in the room too. For all we know the students weren't even started for the day yet (the bell had not rung or it was morning announcement time or whatever they call that in school.......). For all we know the teacher was sitting right next to his students ...and he only had 6 students and not 30 like most deal with.
The point is, we DON'T know just like we DON'T know if your white, black, single, married, have kids, etc...like you MADE SURE to point out.
That's all I'm saying.
I'll be honest...it's a sensitive issue and that's why I'm quick to attack. One of the downfalls of the MEA is that if you're on the bottom of the seniority list, you are the first to go. It doesn't matter if you are the best teacher in the district, you still get axed. I'm not saying I was the best, but I surely wasn't the worst. So now when I hear of teachers complaining about having to chip in on what is literally the best health care that money can buy, or that they are not being productive, it hits pretty close to home.

This is just Michigan Winter Weather. I think people getting all worked up over it is just silly. Enjoy it while it is here. And yes your school might be in session but quit complaining!!! Go outside and enjoy it.

gotcha....I see why you are so quick to attack now. Sometimes it helps to know personal stuff like that about people on these boards!:) I was just trying to prove a point by saying that we really don't know his situation....truce!:)
