Good News Everybody!

Someone in the Texas Department of Education was really dumb and approved my application for a reinstatement of my teaching license. I am a teacher once more and already got a position teaching 5th grade Language Arts.

bwahahahah ahahahah!

Chalkboard falls on Mim's head in 3... 2... 1...

;) Forgive me, couldn't resist! Congrats on the re-accreditation and new job. I must also beg forgiveness for my ignorance -- what are "language arts", exactly? Are they the equivalent of English literature?

We call it language arts in Canada too. It's English literature. I don't know why it's called language arts when its only topic is English.

Being moved to a seventh-grade class next year. I am rather surprised, I figured it would be at least two years before I was able to move to a different grade. It was great news indeed, I even managed to get my booklist approved:

Atlus Shrugged
Starship Troopers
Out of the Silent Planet
The Giver

Luckily only Atlus Shrugged and Out of the Silent Planet need to be ordered (120 copies, wow!) as The Giver and Starship Troopers were already in the book storage.

Atlus Shrugged is a boring book. Why would you want seventh graders to read that rag?

For the same reason I picked all the books; co-oping the tactics the enemy has used for 40 + years

Weather members invaded educational institutions as a means by which to recruit high school and college students. The motivation of these jailbreaks was the organization's belief that school was where the youth were oppressed by the system and where they learned to tolerate society’s faults instead of rise against them. According to “Prairie Fire”, young people are channeled, coerced, misled, miseducated, misused in the school setting. It is in schools that the youth of the nation become alienated from the authentic processes of learning about the world.

Why, because I'm not socialist? Because I don't believe in government control of every facet of my life? You can label me with everyone else you so actively hate, you can, I care little. You know what you want to know, you know I don't like government interference in my life and believe it is wrong to try and force that interference ... but you think I am a racist, a homophobe, a gun-nut, a hater of the poor, an Islamaphobe, and all those little isms and phobes that are so popular to throw at people.

It matters little if I tell you otherwise, it is all too easy to see me as Other.

What am I doing? Offering a viewpoint that is no longer considered, a viewpoint of duty, of hard work, of being okay and not afraid to have faith. I am offering a viewpoint of depending on yourself, your own hands, your own mind, instead of depending on others for everything. So ... okay, I will fuck off right to my classroom, right to a place where can let children know there are other paths than the one the government controls.
