UPDATE ON S.A.W.: Dear Snooperintendent...

Updated: Jul 13

Dear Snooperintendent:


Thanks for reading my emails. And for the long, boring summer break. I’m trying HARD just to waste my time, and I’ll tell you all about it when I come back again--if I ever do.


There is no way I am stepping foot again on any of your school properties for one single second without a personal safety device. That’s due not only to some seriously unruly kids but also to your lackey administration, pedophiles posing as pedagogues, and all the emotionally stunted teachers who peaked in high school, decided never to leave, and then were promoted to Adminstration by you.


I cannot even count on the intellectuals who actually give a spit because they are like indentured servants stuck in your enormous, broken machine; and are too afraid to speak up about it for fear of loss of additional benefits if not an entire career. Case in point, teachers have to ask you if they can quit? And you have the option not to accept that resignation? And then you can revoke said Teaching Certificate altogether if said teacher quits anyway without your permission? AFTER YOU'VE BULLIED THEM INTO LEAVING BY MAKING IT IMPOSSIBLE FOR THEM TO DO THEIR JOBS? It happens all the time, and you know it. You might as well be socialists. Strap on some balls and fire yourself.


In years past, I knew for sure I would at least enjoy my day from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. because I used to like my job so much in spite of you. Now I have to take anxiolytics just to make it through the day, and I cannot sleep at night at all.


I can’t even look forward to Professional Development like I used to because yours might as well be:

- “What Poverty Smells Like and How to Avoid Him;”

- “How to Spot Signs of Sexual Abuse so You Can Point at Her, Too;”

- “How to Differentiate Instruction for a Class of 30 Low, Middle, and High-Achievers;” and

- “One More Suicide”


Here’s a tip for you, Snoop. Knowledge, even if the teachers were to pay attention to it (we are a tough audience after all), does not translate into action. Take my ex-husband (a former teacher himself), for example. He just knows he is intellectually and morally superior to other people, but he still can’t treat them any other way.


Which brings me to my next question for some reason. How many Administrators does it take to teach a class? Don’t be too nice. The answer is zero. But, according to your pyramid scheme, it takes a village to raze a teacher, and you’ve certainly got the budget and the time for that.


So, I’d like to take this opportunity to thank The Academy. You deserve an Oscar For pretending to care more about kids, education, and teachers than you do about yourself--and you deserve prison for tax fraud and educational malpractice. True Story: You assigned me to work with the Student Intervention Team. . .and then refused my suggestion to teach everyone in the system Social-Emotional Skills. . .in favor of teaching Social Media. To kids. At school. You're teaching Social Media at school. In the immortal words of Billy Joel, if that’s moving up then I’m moving out.


The Board can refuse my request for resignation all they want. And you can revoke my Teaching Certificate for the duration. If you want it, you can have it. I’ll be smoking on the best loud in California.
