I Just Googled This Blog

And I found a review. I've been reviewed. And the verdict?

"Too real, too angry and too political. This would be a turn off to any prospective teachers."


There's More!:

I just got voted off the island for being a "downer." I know it was a rough time for everybody when those essays were not getting graded and the alma mater was breaking hearts, but I'm gonna try to post more clever annecdotes about the cute things my students say. I really will. But when bloggers start doing this to one another, doesn't that mean the terrorists win?

I especially like that "too real" is apparently a turnoff to prospective teachers.

As a preprofessional deaf ed student... I would have to disagree with the reviewer. We need more teachers who are "too real". It shows that you actually care about your students and everything that affects them.

Keep up the good work and I look forward to reading more :)

TMAO, Liz here. I read you cause you ARE angry.

And memorize this line, K? "Hey, want to grab a cup of coffee?" -- so it comes out naturally when attractive persons flirt with you.

That's why you should never google yourself, your blog or your ex-s. You learned the hard way, matey.

Critics are like eunuchs at an orgy. Let them eat their hearts out, or whatever it is eunuchs eat.

The criticism is fine; before I started this project I think I may have picked those three adjectives as the perfect descriptor of what I wanted to achieve with this. I am political, this is real, and as for angry, it beats whining about the administrator who dared to suggest that my Thursday collaboration time met be spent in actual collaboration.

Well, I stopped reading "This Week in Education" a while go because it's too boring to waste my time on.

Those that can, teach and blog about it. Those that can't, complain about what others are or are not doing? Does this make any sense?

OFF someones blogroll/reading list....so what. Keep being you. I enjoy your blog and hope you keep up with it.
