If you have to ask, you know the answer.
Crazy times are upon us
@swampbabe - congrats on your upcoming retirement. You have gone above and beyond and we should all thank you for your service. To your decision, I know you will make the right one. It's your call. The sad thing is that the politics in FL have given you pause.
It’s unlikely these maniacs make you a target. Also, they are indeed maniacs and embolden their soldiers daily.
It could happen. No teacher or student thought they’d actually be the one.
Your contribution to society is long fulfilled.
Gracias, no gracias.
Margaret Thatcher is probably my favorite.
The Iron Lady. #thumbsup
Thanks for the input. I’m going to do it because in researching women’s contributions maybe someone will feel more empowered.
I’ve come across so many young women in my career that were so bright but lacked confidence in their abilities.
Besides, I’m going to have them do most of the work
If not too late, did anyone else mention Jacinda Ahern? Plus Sen. Tammy Duckworth would likely be VP now but for fear than an unprincipled DT appointee would rule her ineligible. Combat vet and first US Senator to give birth while in office
Congratulations on 41 years and your upcoming retirement. Glad you are wrapping up your career on your terms.
I would also like to add this lack of confidence seems to be more and more prevalent in both genders over the last 5 years or so, based on my observations. Many (too many), new college hires come in feeling confident and do learn quickly, but on the occasions where we have to leave our systems and improvise a solution they almost go into a shell.
All of the women that will be covered in your course either didn’t have a system to stay in or it didn’t work for them. It will be good to teach them that often the answers to their questions can be found from within and can be solved with innovation, thought, hard work, and perseverance. Hopefully they see this in the women that they learn about.
Depends on the pay.
Pays the same regardless. If I don’t teach women’s studies I would teach one section of Law Studies in addition to my five sections of AP US Gov. So maybe something new to keep me fresh.
As are the millions of mothers that don’t give any support to the teachers at home and then wonder why their kids struggle in school.
See, this is why teaching a class that touches on politicians of the last 30 years or so of either sex is very touch. You think she had a positive impact. I think it was negative. And her crowning achievement was to be such a terrible political candidate that she managed to get Trump elected. Still think that is positive?
If Hillary is to be included in the course, so should non-political criminals like Ma Barker and Bonnie Parker.
Moms for Liberty are all about book banning and inflicting their ideas on school districts. Education never really enters into the equation.
Do you think that that might be up to a student to decide for themselves? Who’s really into indoctrination here?
Go with law studies.
That's what id do, but then i also went JD, so perhaps im a wee biased.
Ted Kennedy never gave birth while in office. I'm just sayin'.
I’ve taught Law Studies a bunch of times and I like it. It was on my original schedule for next year.
The teacher that taught Women’s Studies left and they’ve interviewed a new grad for the position and what’s crazy is that she actually minored in women’s studies. Seems like she should teach it, right?
Admins concern is two fold. One, can she navigate the political waters and two, it would give her three class preps. That would absolutely swamp a new teacher.
