Dude, What? - Teacher Fired For Wearing Bikini?

I know this is a shock but some people teach because they like their job. And if you like what you do...you will take crappy part time jobs to make ends meet just so you can continue to do what you love.She is probably a good teacher because she likes it, not because she gets summer off.  (May 4, 2008 | post #13)

Protestors Scuffle With Police During Torch Relay

Why do the Olympics have to be so darn political? Why can't we just pick our battles? Yeah it sucks what went down in China, Communism sucks too, that is why is that much sweeter of a victory when we kick their butts at some sport they thought they were the best at! Remember when we beat the Soviet Hockey team?????? That was an awesome victory because at the time we hated the Soviets and communism.  (Apr 8, 2008 | post #16)

Teen Shot During Large Gathering in DeKalb

Well said. I used to teach in this kind of school demographic, the kids cared more about their street reputation than they ever cared about their grades and getting somewhere in life. I have taught in the other scenario too. The rich kids don't seem to care about getting arrested, they know that daddy's moeny will bail them out. So it would seem that it is a problem across the board that STARTS AT HOME!  (Apr 8, 2008 | post #81)

I meant suffice it to say...I guess it is really my typing that is imperfect.  (Apr 8, 2008 | post #304)

You are correct. But I am also not perfect, nor do I expect perfection from others. If your child were in my class, you would appreciate that. However, because I am in a public forum, you think I should be perfect and present myself in this manner. Siffice it to say that if this is the way i treated your kid, as you have treated me, you would be the first one screaming. You can't have it both ways.  (Apr 8, 2008 | post #303)

I didn't comment on anyone's poor spelling. That was a response to someone else who has followed me from other posts.  (Apr 8, 2008 | post #297)

go police the world for grammar. I said before that I was sorry for my poor spelling, i am not sorry anymore. In fact I am sorry that your life has come to this, that you are so pathetic you must spend your time correcting the typing, grammar and spelling of the contributors of a news forum. Good luck finding meaning in your life...one day you won't be the sad lonely cat lady that you are...if you could only remove yourself from the computer and the correcting of errors!Try, try as best you can to GET A LIFE!  (Apr 7, 2008 | post #283)

Sorry I can't spell all that well. I am used to the luxery of spell check. As for you, I am sorry that your only thing in life is to be the the grammar check for the world. Yeah, that was a grammatical error not a spelling error.  (Apr 7, 2008 | post #71)

Gwinnett Police Investigate Overnight Double Shooting

I used to teach at South Gwinnett High School. It was a part of my weekly routine to send out progress reports to parole officers. On a daily basis I would have an email from the P.O.s of several of my students asking if they were in my class that day. At one point I had trouble with one of the other students in my class (one with out a P.O.) and I called home to talk to the parents. The mom's response was so suprising to me. She said "I really haven't seen him in a week but I hope you figure out what to do with him because I haven't been able to keep him acting right for a while. When you see him in class tomorrow ask him to bring home some money so I can buy some milk for HIS baby that I take care of." Yeah, that was shocking. This starts at home folks! Teach your children not to be **** and do soemthing with their lives! I can not do this on my own, the school can not do this with out your support.It used to be that the school would back up what is taught at home when it came to behavior...now it is the other way around.  (Apr 7, 2008 | post #11)

You actually went to your govenrment class in high school and from the souds of it you paid attention. These people are likely drop outs or in the "tech ed" program where they learn a skill rather than how the government, for the country they live in works. They may have also taken an alternate course they knew would be more beneficial to them called "street law". I am not kidding either. Street law teaches the basics about search and seizure, what is and is not against the law and when to know that you need to wait for a lawyer before answering questions. So thinking that these people might know that they are disturbing the peace is not too far fetched, they just also know it isn't something dekalb police are willing to take you to jail for.  (Apr 7, 2008 | post #24)

Protestors Scuffle With Police During Torch Relay

I feel bad for the people who are chosen to run with the torch...all the politics are stealing the glory of being chosen. At this point, I wouldn't do it if they asked me, there is no telling what will happen with the protestors here in the U.S.A.  (Apr 6, 2008 | post #4)
