Of course her name is Karen.

How do people like this still get hired? Is the labor shortage so severe that we are scraping the bottom of the barrel to teach kids?

A school district in Texas is calling on parents to ditch their day jobs and work as substitute teachers as COVID-19 cases surge across the state.

Any parents considering the move would need to pass a criminal background check and complete an orientation. But if they're known to school officials and come recommended, the district may waive a required minimum of at least 30 college hours, the station reported.

"Is it better to have someone who didn't have the 30 college hours in the classroom teaching, or otherwise having those kids stay home?" district spokesperson Tim Savoy said. "We think that it's better to have them in school."


LOL

No experience? Come teach our kids. Yell racial slurs at them if you want. It's not like you were trained not to.

That's nothing new.  My sister had no teaching experience and was a substitute.

It was amusing when she compared herself to my then-girlfriend, an actual teacher with a doctorate in education.  And my sister's name is Karen, lol.

Do you really need training to know that calling kids attractive and successful is a bad idea?

I'm half way through year thirty-four in the classroom. Been there, done it, seen it with parents, students, fellow teachers, administrators and district employees. Two must haves to survive this long are 1. a filter 2. extreme patience. Today's "parents" are quite "special". Because of this, the district I work for no longer requires phone calls to parents. E-mail only.

Substitutes were barely useful employees in the Before Times.  Currently, the pickings have become even slimmer.  Used to be I avoided taking too many days off out of simple professionalism.  Now it's also partially because I have zero farking idea what kind of incompetence is going to find it's way into my classroom.

Boettge was hired to substitute in Pinellas schools on July 1. She had worked in several schools without incident, "until now," Mascareñas said.

How much do you want to bet that those schools weren't schools "where about 75 percent of the students are Black" ?

By the headline I'm thinking oh it was probably a younger black guy substitute that was being too casual around some teenagers and this is some clickbait then you open the article and the first line is "A white substitute teacher is out of a job after repeatedly using a racial slur..."what a maniac.

I'm in Connecticut, we haven't repealed the minimum of a bachelor's degree yet for substitutes, but now that schools are being cancelled due to lack of teachers i guess it is a matter of time.

Here in CA you have to pass the Cbest. It was a pretty grueling 4-hour, 3-part exam. I took it years ago, so I qualify, but then they went to a first-served system online for jobs and I didn't want to sit around every morning like a dog waiting for a treat, then have to compete online at 4:00 AM for dregs.

The professionals are fleeing the environment because it's not worth it.  What kind of amateurs do you think are lining up to spend days at a time in confined spaces with dozens of petri dishes during a pandemic?

If they're not almost exclusively anti-vaxxer types, I'd be surprised.

I have a Master's in Education. I've been out of teaching for ten years. It wouldn't take much to get me back in the classroom; At any point you could start treating teachers with respect. The last teaching positions I applied for asked me to leave my MEd off my resume. So they would have to pay me. Seriously. I told them to pound sand and it was the best decision I've made. So yes, try treating people better and you'll be amazed.

I saw that, too. The name is so unusual the odds are that it is indeed her. So she's a bigot and her son is a grabby pedo. Both oxygen thieves.

Please tell me that they do CORI checks on anyone that sets foot in the school. I had a friend who used to come into my classroom once a year to speak about indigenous instruments. Even though it was his old middle school and he was there for about 4 hours. CORI check every year.

You would think.....the pedo stuff happened in NJ so if they're not doing nationwide checks they probably should start....

They show her at about 2:55 in the imbedded video. She looks like she'd fit right in at a maga rally.

The lack of "buy-in" from today's parents is disheartening.  My daughters school (where she teaches 3rd grade) doesn't even have a PTA because none of the parents signed up for it...none.  The lack of PTA for the school could lead to fines levied against the school...

I think this is her 8th year teaching...
