any teachers out there know ?

California seems like the state for random trouble...probably because Justin Beiber got famous there...

All tenure is is the assurance that unless something appalling happens, you'll be offered a contract next year. You can be fired even if you do have tenure. Your teacher should NOT be allowed to get away with this, though. I'm sorry about her. :(

yea it's a shame .. college professors out here don't need any teaching credentials to teach ..

i'm glad at least k-12 teachers have to go through a lot more training certifications to be a teacher for kids ..

CodeRed, you're making me so glad I made it through HS at least. And Mistress, I totally agree about the tenure thing at CA colleges. Some of the worst professors get tenure too! I've never had a racist prof, only boring ones, but I can't believe your prof. Grrrrr.

Sweeda, I'm so sorry your pain is back. :( I wish I could give you a big healing hug.

I've never had a mean teacher, but I had a pretty mean sub in Orchestra in 7th grade. Here we are, kids with about a year and a half of experience under our belt:
Teacher: Do a double-octave D-Major scale!
Us: (in our heads) whaaaat???
Random chick: but we don't know what that is!
Teacher: You're learning!

Seriously, would it have been that big of a deal for her to play it for us or something? Or take 30 seconds to explain it?

How are kids supposed to learn if the teacher doesn't teach? Crazy sub. What were you supposed to do, get up and look up what it was on a computer?

Exactly 0__o She just expected us to play it and learn it. Isorries, but that's not how things work.

It was a total lol moment when the normal teacher (who was awesome) said that she'd be subbing and a girl called out "Oh, that old hag?!"

I've had subs like that where, when the regular teacher comes back, I just want to hug 'em and say, "Don't ever leave again!" Even a really bad sub can make a bad teacher look pretty good, if that makes any sense.
