Imagine what my ratings will be! But, I'm sure that when you received them from our school to join the Chess Team and moved to the 1500's rating, language was not issue! Bloomberg has been taking Spanish for many years, and when he talks it makes me puke! Try to show the same results with our students to him. You'll be fired. Enough of this scam! Teacher Evaluations are a way to fire indiscriminately anyone that makes a decent living and hire new teachers with no insurance, pension, or basic working rights!<br />DO NOT BELIEVE THE CONTRARY, because you'll also be unemployed!<br />Regards<br />Mr. BreaAnonymousnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8556305125957341024.post-86350085514195361272012-02-28T20:52:14.011-05:002012-02-28T20:52:14.011-05:00The above post was mine.

Experienced teachers are sometimes bad at getting classes to pass tests, but are many times good at imparting knowledge.<br /><br />Last thing I want is for the inmates to be running the asylum. My biggest beef is with administrators who think students should always be taking math and not chess. :-) I would prefer students get to choose curriculum rather than get to choose teachers.linuxguyhttp://www.linuguyonfics.wordpress.comnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8556305125957341024.post-74684299776876534772012-02-28T20:45:07.058-05:002012-02-28T20:45:07.058-05:00I detest objective tests but also tended to do qui...I detest objective tests but also tended to do quite well, or better at them than other tests.<br /><br />I believe they are atrociously horrible for students (spit back what the book or I said verbatim). The one positive may be that those types of tests somehow keep many teachers on track, or from getting overly lazy in the absence of such testing (but that is not saying much - lock-step-testing education is probably close to being worthless unless it's about how to fix a car, IMHO).Anonymousnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8556305125957341024.post-65688016747747910282012-02-26T12:17:41.213-05:002012-02-26T12:17:41.213-05:00My Data Report:
