    This Is What Is Teaching Our Kids

    Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

    I've known that since the days of Klintoon the Buffoon. Just seems to get worse year by year. Now a teacher decides to "sell" a young relative - cousin or niece - to some Muslims in Morocco. Advertises her as a virgin.

    Let's not be so quick to judge all teachers by the foolishness of one.

    as i told one of my sons in law earlier (very much tongue in cheek), we should not be so quick to judge her since we've not walked in her shoes (it's a line he's tried to use on me a couple of times in the past. actually, he's come a long long ways in the last several years......mac

    In further episodes of Tales and Tribulations of the Texas Teacher ...
    Two Americans were reportedly captured fighting for the self-described Islamic State in Syria last week, the U.S-backed Syrian Democratic Forces said on Sunday.

    One of the Americans was identified as 34-year-old Warren Christopher Clark, aka Abu Mohammad al-Ameriki, who formerly taught in Texas. The other was 35-year-old Zaid Abed al-Hamid, aka Abu Zaid al-Ameriki, according to the Syrian Democratic Forces.

    Clark is a graduate at the University Houston who sent his teaching resume to ISIS after becoming radicalized sometime around 2004, NBC News reported last year.


    A copy of his resume and cover letter seeking a job as an English teacher were found in an Iraq neighborhood that had been taken over by ISIS fighters.

    “I’m looking to get a position teaching English to students in the Islamic State. I was born and raised in the United States and have always loved teaching,” the cover letter read. “I have a long background in teaching a variety of different subjects and have instructed students of all ages at several schools.”
    Prior to allegedly joining ISIS overseas, he was a substitute teacher from August of 2008 to November of 2010 in Fort Bend, Texas, a spokeswoman for the school district confirmed to HuffPost.

    I made an appearance at a high school assembly, loaded with supposed seniors, who did not listen at all, but played on their phones and chatted. What were their teachers doing? Playing on their phones. I dropped the mike and walked out. The person who had me come in apologized, and I said it wasn't her problem, but the problem of every teacher who puts up with the kids' ####. There are some great teachers out there, but the younger ones? Millenial snowflakes teaching millenial snowflakes, with very few exceptions.
