    It sounds like he hadn't heard anything about it until you contacted him with the DU thread.

    Forget the lame political pandering. This is what she should be repremanded for:

    Iíve gotten to know each of you fairly well over the course of this year, and my greatest joy has been learning that you all have something special about you, and because of that, this country and this world is wide open to you. _____________, you can do and become anything (repeat for each student).
    Witless comments like that bounce a lot of reality checks by the time people hit 30. :D

    But she is taking it too far IMO. Why would you let your students write letters or messages to Obama on the board?

    A better thing to do might also be to point out something significant about McCain (former POW would be what I point out). With parental permission, I'd give the addresses out to write letters to both candidates.
    Alright, this can't be Bridget. This is waaaaaaaaaay too short. Who is this???:mad:




    :p

    Finnfan is a fella and I think was recently hired at Classical Magnet. I imagine he won't post brags like this for a while.

    18. Thanks for your vibes today, everyone.
    I didn't get the position. One of my classmates interviewed first, and I think it was over right then. They've already called and offered her the job.

    For my very first teaching interview, I think I did all right. I know some things to do for next time. And the person who got the offer is really wonderful, so I can't complain.

    Thanks again everyone!

    Yep. Happens every time someone over there posts about something stupid they did or are doing along with information that makes them easily identifiable. Call this "Walldude 2.0." :D (Walldude. Ha! Greatest. Pwnage. EVAR!!!)

    Well... That would certainly explain his gushing over Obamessiah. Real men don't gush. Fruits do. (They also "dish," whatever that is. Andrew "Gay Butt Massager" Sullivan would know.)

    Have you heard more about this?

    No. The principal hasn't written back since my last message with the identifying information I could find. Hopefully the fact that he asked about who it was meant that he was open to pursuing action.

    Anyone see any recent posts on DU by Finnfan?
