Glad I'm not a teacher. You do your best and work your hardest, but of course, getting kids to improve is like herding cats, so you'll get laid off anyway. I'm reading this, and I have to admit...maybe I'm a terrible person, but what does some lady having been a prostitute have to do with her ability as a teacher? I'm not saying she should CURRENTLY be a prostitute, but if she has renounced it and wants to change her lifestyle, she should be able to move forward in life.
Everyone always slams the teacher's unions and I wonder if it's just union busting or not.
