Los Angeles: A Teacher, Falsely Accused   Leave a comment

Do you want to know why teachers need due process (aka “tenure”)? Read the story below, sent by reader Drew Pepper.

Here’s another story of how LAUSD (mis)handles a case where a teacher is accused of something:

1) LAUSD and Sun Valley High teacher Jason Duchan discovers a student drawing genitals on his desk, then reports this to the principal, who then informs the student’s parents, causing the student to get in big trouble with the adults both at school and at home;

2) That same night, the student retaliates by fabricating a Facebook page that is supposedly created by the teacher, Jason Duchan, full of lewd images and writing—all in an effort to frame Duchan; the teacher remains unaware of the page’s existence for over a year;

3) A year or so later, LAUSD’s “Student Safety Investigative Team” (yeah, that’s what the call it) discovers the Facebook page…

Learn English with my friend Mark   Leave a comment

Alvin Lester Davis Yesterday at 7:16am · To whom it may conern: First of all, thank you for taking the time to review my resume. My name is Mark Taylor and I’m a 33 year old American residing here in Angeles City. I have been in the Philippines for almost 6 years. I am married and have one child and am very much a family man at this point in my life. Almost 5 years ago I started teaching English with a Korean language school here in Angeles city that focuses on Native English classes both 1:1 and in group settings. My position now with the school is native supervisor. Because of my appearance and my social skills I have also been a vital part of our schools marketing program. Last year I visited Vietnam and Japan twice for school fairs marketing our academy. I’m responsible for 14 native teachers mainly from America and Canada. I’m a clean, sharp, motivated young man and I think I would make a great addition to any Institution. I am looking for something long-term and hope to be part of a team of people who share the same backgrounds, ideals, and passion for life that I do. Please take me into consideration for a position with your school and give me the opportunity of at least an interview. I hope to hear from you soon. Kind regards, Mark Taylor

English: An anxious person English: An anxious person (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Many people with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD)experience social anxiety, such as fears of public speaking. These fears can have a tremendous impact on a person’s level of success at work or at school, as someone with these fears may avoid jobs, classes, or situations where they have to present in front of other people.

People who fear public speaking often beat themselves up over these fears. However, if you fear public speaking, it is important to remember that these fears make sense. When you are speaking in front of a crowd, you are vulnerable (which can be very frightening for someone with PTSD). In addition, the situation can be threatening in the sense that people may evaluate you negatively. Sometimes, people even fear positive evaluation, as they believe that if they do a good job, they will always be expected to…

When writing an essay, term paper, or report, you should always try to use words that convey your meaning vividly but accurately.

Can you just imagine your poor teacher at her desk reading “The book was interesting” a hundred times or more? That can’t be good for creating a friendly grading environment!

Skillful writing is not easy; it is a tricky endeavor that involves a fine balance between extremes.

You shouldn’t have too much fuss or too much dry fact in a term paper; either can be tiresome.

One way to develop more interesting writing is to avoid tired or overused words.

You may be surprised at the extent of your own vocabulary, and the fact that you don’t use it for your own benefit. You probably know the meanings of many words, but you don’t employ them in your speech or your writing.
