It Has Come To This


I can’t get the specter of two powerful world leaders involved in a cat fight on Twitter so I am unable to write anything even up to my mildly cogent standards.   The idea of John McCain and Vladimir Putin trading ludicrus, infantile puerile,inflammatory, derogatory, BRAINLESS, and etc. jibber-jabber on Twitter simply scares the Hell out of me on too many levels to even express.  Is it possible that the next world war won’t start with a  nuclear bomb in a pickup truck as is often predicted but on a Twitter account.

I used to be retired now I’m just tired

Speechless and wordless

Bye for a while.

I was a school teacher until retirement. I have taught at all educational levels from pre-school to college. My college degree is general science which I arrived at after 5 years and 5 different majors. A degree as it turns out, almost as valuable and in demand as one in Neo-Bulgarian Mythology. I have been around education for around 40 years and can remember when teaching was a pleasant, happy and creative job and our schools were the same. Now I'm the guy sitting on the porch with an opinion on everything.

    Don’t stop writing. You don’t realize how your insights about education and dealing with students totally make my day. I look forward to your posts every single day — even if you are tired of insane politics and the sometimes crazy people in positions of power. Your blog makes me smile. Sometimes it’s your humorous style; or I smile because of your refreshingly honest insight about what happens in schools,

    I’m ready to retire, also, after about 40 years in education. I’m tired of politicians interfering with our ability to be creative and “student centered.” I know the pendulum is swinging back (away from standardization), but I’m ready to think about other things. It isn’t politically correct not to believe in “standards,” as if they make any difference at all in most classrooms. When I was a superintendent, I considered it my job to protect teachers from the insanity of high stakes testing and other policies not good for students or teachers. Now that I am back in the trenches dealing directly with students, life is more fun. It is easier to ignore all the flotsom flying around in the political realm.

    Don’t take too long a break — I still have to get through the rest of this school year!!
