one of the prerequisites to teaching in Oakland is knowing how to speak ebonics.

Lynette Calvin-Epps claims u have to be able to speak
ebonics to be a successful teacher in Oakland
schools....Hogwash to think all Black people believe
in ebonics as to be their legacy......
Ms Calvin-Epps is also rude, outspoken, arrogant and
insulting as the Substitute Placement Clerk for the
Oakland schools...She doesn't deserve the job even...

I ran into Ms Lynette Calvin-Epps at a training for government employees. She reminded me of Paulette
G Terrell who I used to work with at the SF Mint.
I am not sure who was the bigger phony- Paulette or
Lynette???? Both of them are jokes to their
respective professions at their respective school
districts....Lynette works @ Oakland USD as a
Substitute Placement Clerk and Paulette works at
San Francisco USD as a Fiscal Services Director....
They both have such arrogant, overbearing
attitudes that it makes u so sick to your stomach just putting up with them.....much less working with them on a daily basis (ugh).....

Indiana Jones, Aqua Marine and your various alias need know that, while Ms Calvin-Epps is indeed rude, arrogant and possibly unqualified, you, my friend, seem equally inept. I am living proof that you need not speak Ebonics to teach in Oakland. You do need patience, flexibility and a sense of humor. Get some!

Label me "inept" , Child please, for speaking the truth. You are
a poorly paid at-will lackey and brown-nosing sycophant without
a doubt. I have more patience, flexibility and humor than you
could ever gain over a lifetime because you sell yourself to a phony
fuddy-duddy like Lynette who is a cheap shot at helping African
Americans obtain racial equality by advocating ebonics and being the token silent minority in a district which has been plagued by
corruption, bankruptcy and mismanagement. Lynette is a continuation of this past mismanagement and incompetence and if
you patronize her, you have also stooped and risen to the highest
level of your own ineptness and incompetence.

I could have called you worse. Please re-read my post (or have someone read it to you). I actually agreed with you about Lynette. You DID pass the CBEST, right? Fortunately for me, subbing was a temporary stop. I now make 5x as much and work 3 days/week, but wondering who pissed in your cheerios? Hopefully you have moved on and have found peace in your final years. I'm out, so don't bother..... unless you're lonely and sad. I won't be reading your rant, anyways. May the force be with you.:)
