    Two public school teachers with somewhat similar, inappropriate emotional classroom outbursts. Or are they?

    Two years ago, one of my Salvadorian female students was talking shit about the USA, it sucks, I hate it here, blah, blah, balh, etc, and so forth.

    I told her, "Then go back to El Salvadore if you don't like it here."

    Her response was, " I was born here."

    D'oh.

    Tanya Dixon Neely continued on with her tirade demonstrating her lack of knowledge, total disrespect for studentS in the classroom and political agenda. She has no business in the classroom. She perpetrated discord in the classroom.

    Shirley Bunn had a slip of the tongue amounting to five words without shouting and has an honorable record of classroom teaching skills.

    I'm lucky one or more of my students hasn't recorded some of my performances. I treat them like my own until they start acting like little thugs. I don't take their shit and as soon as everyone gets on the same page, things run really smooth, for the most part.

    Inform parents/caregivers of such horrendous behavior.

    They can have them but the electronic devices must be off and hidden. I'm actually a softy and treat my students like gold. Just once in a blue moon will one get me to the cusp of saying something that might get me fired. I'm in the most diverse school in the system and the kids that get offended the most are my few white kids. They all learn to appreciate a good joke by mid October though.

    The funny, not really funny, thing about that is, her mother, whom we had to speak with through an interpretor, was actually Salvdorian. She was a very nice woman and wanted the best for her unappreciative spoiled little American daughter. I had several meetings with her as Little Precious had 160 hours monthly of Special Education services and I was her only "regular" education teacher. By law, I had to attend all her IEP and other such meetings.
