It was really easy for me to figure out! Actually, I have owned a business for 16 years. I decided to go back to teach and coach at a local school. I have a clear vision and I can see exactly what is happening. I started questioning certain methods and I was told to do what I was told! I have 60 sophs that can't read or write. In fact 55 (of the 60) failed the required Sat9 in CA. I told the admin. "These kids need to work on the basics! I was told, "NO, you teach them how to write essays!" OOOHHHHKAYYYYYYYYY. I have them writing essays (via templates that I designed) but they can't spell!
I have 15 kids on probation! I have more special ed. kids than I ever imagined! I really love the special ed. kids, but really they can't hang either. I was told to teach English witout books for 11 weeks!
