It's a powerful read.
She just needs to go back to school and get a "real" degree in a subject that matters.
Like in science, biology, chemistry, math, etc.
IF you actually read it, she does have a "real" teaching credential. And, that's really not the point of the letter.
She is just whining because the school doesn't want to pay her to teach the kids Art.
Let them learn "art" at home with a box of crayons and some paper.
Because they need to learn "real" subjects in school.
Right because learning out of a book is a great way to engage kids....
What a nincompoop that woman is.
Art... any art... whether it's the visual arts, music, theater, or architecture has played a tremendous role throughout human civilization, and to see someone dismiss that "subject" as being nonessential/unimportant brings me great pain.
In other news, Planned Parenthood opened an office in an LAUSD high school. That's where the money is going.
It isn't that I question the expenditure of funds for a creative arts teacher, of course I do. It has gotten so bad, that social programming classes are even squeezing out other social programming classes. That she incorporates chemistry into clay and glaze classes doesn't mean she is a chemistry teacher. She is an arts teacher and teaching art is a luxury that even proponents of gay history no longer can afford.
This teacher had a choice, she could have been a chemistry teacher but chose to be an arts teacher. She made a poor decision. Who is going to pay for her poor decision?
She has several options, go to a private art school and apply for a job. Take on students privately and have her own school. Or, she can go back to school herself and find a more worthwhile subject to teach.
How is teaching art a luxury, and how was becoming an art teacher a poor decision?
You guys to realize she's an elementary school teacher and not a high school teacher right???
