|A posh school mum waiting for her kids (Notice the crossed legs - a sign of class)|
I have heard, on the teacher grapevine, that Ringo was being interviewed for a Deputy Principal's position at a rather posh Wellington school.
Our hopes go with him.
May he find success.
May he enjoy years and years of happiness with his nice little boys.
May we enjoy years and years of happiness WITHOUT him.
But then the question arises, who is going to replace Ringo?
There are many qualified staff from within Nuova Lazio who could do the job admirably.
I won't be applying.
I'm too cynical, too old, too set in my ways, too good a teacher.
I've said an un-PC fact.
The best teachers want to remain teachers, and don't want to spend their days punishing naughty kids from all around the school.
I like to think I'm good at what I do.
I'm a bit of a disciplinarian, a bit of a control freak, a bit of a perfectionist.
I want my kids to succeed, and in the main they do.
I don't allow kids to talk, walk about the class, space out, grope and bully other kids when teaching and learning is supposed to be happening.
When they're on their own designated tasks, I have no objection to quiet chat with their neighbours, listening to their own music (even though I personally think that their music can be favourably compared to the caterwauling of hyperactive cats.) as long as their work progresses.
I really enjoy my work.
I embrace my student's success.
I enthuse at their excellence.
|Obviously an Educationalist|
I hate the new-fangled idiotic ideas being generated by the dick-heads in many schools of education.
I don't blame the educationalists, no matter how much I despise them.
I know that they have to "Publish or Die".
I blame the Ministry of Education where the poor chumps who work there have to initiate a new scheme every year. They're the ones who grab the published papers from the educationalists, present it as the "New Approach to The Promised Land" to the Minister, and get it sent out as a compulsory mandate to all the schools.
|Which one's from the Ministry?|
They both are.
This year it seems to be "Make good relationships with your kids"
Next year it may be "Get them though NCEA2 or loose your job"
I wish they'd f*ck off and die.
Ex-Clive is well out of it.
Funnily enough, Ringo was with the Ministry.
It explains a lot.
|Q. Which one is from the Ministry.|
A. None of them. They're all Left Tits.
