It’s Always ‘Teacher Appreciation Week’ When You Have Kids In School

It's Always 'Teacher Appreciation Week' When You Have Kids In School

As a parent, thinking of all the things you do in a day to help your small child navigate the world could make the idea of turning them over to a big, “scary” school a bit daunting. I know I worried about so many little things when my first child started school and it turned out to be for naught, because her amazing teachers were there every step of the way. More »

If You’re A Daycare Teacher Venting That You ‘Hate Kids’ You Might Not Want To Vent On Facebook

If You're A Daycare Teacher Venting That You 'Hate Kids' You Might Not Want To Vent On Facebook

A single mother in Texas had just started a new job working as a teacher in a daycare center and took to Facebook immediately to report how much she didn’t like it and also, that she hates kids. Nice, right? The post was shared by enough people that it got back to the daycare center and she was fired. This might make me sound cruel but firing her was the exact right thing to do. More »

Teacher Suspended After Racist Tweets Proving Twitter Is Good For Something

Teacher Suspended After Racist Tweets Proving Twitter Is Good For Something

A Texas teacher was suspended without pay pending discharge following an incident of sending out racist Tweets about the recent incidents in Ferguson, Missouri. I was horrified when I read about this but also, thought to myself how stupid this teacher was to spout her racist nonsense on social media. Clearly, she knows it could cause her to lose her job and also, lets everyone know what a racist piece of scum she is. More »

If Schools Are Going To Have Neck Tattoo Policies For Teachers, They Should Follow Them

If Schools Are Going To Have Neck Tattoo Policies For Teachers, They Should Follow Them

Tattoos can be a controversial topic. Some people see them as art and a way to express yourself or commemorate something. Others see them as a youthful mistake or bad judgment call. Still others see them as a reason to not give a person a job they are otherwise fully qualified for and I happen to think that is ridiculous. As long as the applicant is willing to cover their tattoos (if that is what a place of business requires) they should have just as much of a chance as their non-tattooed peers. That is not the case in an instance of clear discrimination involving a trainee teacher at a Catholic school. More »

Two Female Teachers Have A Threesome With A Male Student And Let’s Cue The Pervs Cheering Him On

Two Female Teachers Have A Threesome With A Male Student And Let's Cue The Pervs Cheering Him On

In one of my least favorite double standards of all time, we have a case of a male 16-year old high school student being involved in sexual activity with not one, but two female teachers at his school. I have already seen this story shared on Facebook with the typical pieces of filth cheering him on and saying how “lucky” he is but how would the tables turn if he were a female student in a three-way with male teachers?

Idiot Teacher’s Plan To Use Special Ed Student As Bait To Catch Sexual Predator Goes Horribly Wrong, OBVIOUSLY

 Idiot Teacher's Plan To Use Special Ed Student As Bait To Catch Sexual Predator Goes Horribly Wrong, OBVIOUSLY

A 14-year-old special education student’s family is suing their school district after an incident in 2010 when a teacher’s aide convinced their daughter to act as bait for a fellow student who was known to be a sexual predator. This gangbusters idea went wrong, however, when the girl was then raped by this student in the school bathroom. So…mission accomplished, I guess. More »
