She's cute. She looks like a newscaster.

Brubold: Roja Herring: OnlyM3: Lies, all lies. Everyone knows you can't be successful without a government program or unions.

If it weren't for government programs and unions, to who would she be selling these lesson plans?

That's true. She did make her money off the union teachers who are too lazy to come up with their own lesson plans.


Uh, Just for the record. She teaches in Georgia. No real unions.

Vangor: ScaliaDissenting: Interesting idea, but I'd be curious what her and other teachers' employment contracts say about ownership of the IP rights in the lesson plans... (ie; work-for-hire doctrine).

Lesson plans and similar are the property of the teacher. Materials such as curriculum maps and texts designated by the school would be the property of the school. Unfortunately, many teachers routinely use textbooks and curriculum maps as the curriculum and methodology, thus lesson planning for them consists of writing down the page numbers.


Is that what teachers' employment agreements typically say? Seems odd to me, considering that most corporations require employees to automatically assign/transfer rights in IP created on company time, using company resources, etc... Then again, I guess the teachers have the unions to bargain for these sorts of terms on their behalf...

If you believe lesson planning is done during normal working hours on school equipment, you've never spent a week with teachers. Planning period is used for paperwork, meetings, grading, prepping materials, etc.. Before school is for prepping materials. After school is for grading and parent meetings. There are lesson plans which are plans for a singular lesson or unit which covers materials, procedures, objectives, accommodations, etc., and lesson plans which are plans for all lessons this day or week and basically have minimal information such as page numbers. The latter get done in school, but nothing novel is generated there.

I May Be Crazy But...: Pray 4 Mojo: I May Be Crazy But...: problems like 2+(3*5)=___.

10? Right?

It's 30. 2+3=6, then 6*5=30. You must be a real moran if you couldn't get it right.


Nice try, but please excuse my dear Aunt sally.

The correct answer is 17.

2+(3*5) = 2 + 15 = 17.

PEMDAS is the order of operations--powers, exponents, multiplication, division, addition, subtraction. You have to multiply the 3 and 5 before you add 2 to anything.

Your point about teachers working outside of school hours actually emphasizes how hard it would be to document whether she was on or off the clock when she created the lesson plans she intended to sell for personal profit. I don't know if it is regular practice for school teachers to log and submit their hours--I doubt it. Even if she did, using work supplies/resources and discussing these plans with other teachers at work seems likely, as does using her class as guinea pigs for the lessons.

I've signed conflict of interest as well as intellectual property agreements for several jobs, including my current job. I'd have to run something like this by administrators. Maybe she did. Professors, for example, personally profit from writing books and giving talks. Great for the professor and brings prestige to the school.

Contrary to what you may believe Georgia's internet does allow people to view our websites and we can see websites outside of Georgia. Just saying that perhaps it wasn't just GA teachers buying her lesson plans.

OnlyM3: Quantum Apostrophe

Ontos: I thought rich people were evil... Fark told me so.

Is she paying a retinue of fiscalists and accountants to wiggle out of paying taxes?
Set the example
* Romney and his wife, Ann, gave 29.4 percent of their income to charity in 2011
* Obama and first lady Michelle Obama gave 21.8 percent of their income to charitable organizations
* Biden and his wife, Jill, gave 1.5 percent of their income


- The Mormon Church tithe is not a charity. It's a membership fee.
- There are rare people who don't !) to issue a refund back to them for what
they gave.
- Is the charity deduction an indirect way of government funding of churches and non-profits?

Wingnutwillie: So she probably borrowed ideas from other teachers, they all share, and then sells them back to teachers who are unimaginative enough to teach 4-5 years olds the science of dinosaurs? Seriously, if you need help teaching 4-5 year old kids about dinosaurs get out of the business, you're doing more harm than good. This is what's wrong with education today, teachers who would pay $8 for a teaching program rather than take an hour and create one themselves.

/mother was an elementary school teacher for 40+ years.
//brother is an elementary, 15+ years.
/// teachers work 9-3, 9 months a year is complete and utter bullshiat


Teachers don't work 9-3, and as the son and brother of a teacher you should know that.
That prep you're asking teachers to do, in your first paragraph, is not done during the hours of 9-3.
Teachers take their work home with them. They prepare lessons, must stay a step or two
ahead of their own students, and then have to grade all that crap, while acting a babysitters (and sometimes
counselors) (or coaches) and navigating the political minefield of 'school district versus helicopter parents'.

It's hard work.

If your mother and brother were able to 'be teachers' only from 9 to 3, five days a week, 9 months out of the year, and then they left all that at the school and didn't bring it home................... what methods did they come up with to allow them to only be teachers doing that time?

Herodotus: This math lesson brought to you by 5th grade math class.


You're that guy that nobody likes to see at a party aren't you?

Why'd the chicken cross the road?
Well, it probably depends on the chicken and the specific circumstances, and anyway, the more pressing problem is how the chicken was able to get loose and cause a traffic hazard.

I'd give her an A.

By which, I mean that I'd give it to her in the A.
