Et tu, Zappa?
This is from Science Teacher blog, Feb. 21, 2012. It is lovely in a tough-minded way, which is exactly the tone I appreciate.
Frank Zappa might be right....
All kinds of noble and ignoble nonsense spews from the mouths of those who would judge me.
Teachers are fair game, and understandably so--we're involved in a process no one truly understands honing our varied skills on the most impressionable among us. That these impressionable folk happen to be the result of sexual unions among adults who (mostly) live in the same town I teach only adds to the fun. Add to that that they're paying me out of pocket to do this, well, I expect a little noise.
I'll make it easy for you.
