Stay Tuned

Hi, Folks,
It has been pointed out that my posts have been somewhat lacking of late. I apologize for the paucity of content, but tomorrow, when I have rested my weary dura mater, I promise to give you a full rundown of the unfathomably horrible, unconcievably hiddeous, nauseatingly officious process it takes to take a college teacher, and break them down molecule by molecule, dollar by dollar, and convert them into a zombie-fied high school teacher.

Tune in tomorrow!!

I'm not complaining. But then, I haven't updated my blog in a month, so I've no right to bitch. ;)
Maybe I'll do it when I get home from work.

My church has a special group for k-12 teachers. In addition to providing moral support, our teacher helps us incorporate biblical truth into our lesson plans. This is ESPECIALLY important to me since I teach 7th grade science. There is nothing like the look on their young faces when I tell them that chapter three in their science book is wrong! After making this statement we often have a long discussion about how Earth was really made. I am lucky in that my principle and a member of the school board go to my church.
Sorry about the long post but this is important to me! Check with your pastor marius, I am sure he can point you in the right direction. Welcome to the teaching field! Remeber, "I am not in this for the money, I am in this to when souls for Christ!" Good luck

so i didn't know you were teaching high school.

well you can really impact those kids lives.

i'd tell them to do drugs, that way they at least know you are being honest with them.

I am not sure about a teacher who provides instruction on creationism and cannot spell princiPAL correctly. My guess? This is not a public school. Whatever your beliefs, do not listen to this. This type of stuff should get you fired. And that would be a big bummer for the kids and your family.

Public education can be a grind, but hang in there. Find the posse of bad asses who drink after school on Fridays. These people will be your salvation. Them, and the kids you will be teaching. You are an elective teacher- for the most part everyone WANTS to be in your class. Worst case scenario? Winter break will be hear before you know it. Feel free to email me if you need any specific help, lesson plans, resources, etc. I'd be happy to help.
Your pal,
the Naughty Monkey

Hi, Folks,
Thanks for all your words of support, and to my religious friend, while I realize you are saying these things with love and faith, if you would read back over my past entries you would find that you and I are at opposite ends of the belief spectrum. While I do not claim that there is no God, I do strongly refute Creationism, and even if it were the proper thing to discuss in my class, which it isn't, I would never suggest that the world is only 6,000 years old, or that dinosaurs were on the ark.(yes, I have seen the creation museum or whatever it is called) Unless, of course, this is Doug and you are just yanking my chain again, in which case bite me!

And Monkey, thanks. I might just take you up on that. :-)
