It's about 9 minutes long with a surprise ending.

Enjoy!

Wonder if any of my friends' attention spans can get through it.

Right up to the end, I was thinking about how uncomfortably close to the truth the story was, then here came the ending. Hilarious, and exactly what happens when you turn the snowflakes’ reasoning back on them. Love it, and thanks for sharing.

Great video! Thanks for posting it.

The video reminds me of something I read about a couple months ago, and we really might be headed in that direction. As far as I'm concerned, the new push to "rehumanize" math in the Seattle school district is downright scary. This topic is a minefield, and that's why I signed out.

Great ending! The whole thing was a little painful because there are definitely snippets of truth in every part of it.

Mrs. Wells reminds me of Betty White. Pretty lady.

I have heard about some districts on forums that teachers are no longer able to say, "Good Job!" even because it is evaluative or judgmental. The same with marking answers wrong. I am not sure what this world has come to, but I am glad to be retiring next yr.

PS I am very truly sorry though for any1 stuck in this type of situation.
I'd advise any1 young to get out while they can.

This just doesn’t make any sense! I am completely speechless. I thought this was a joke. (I am referring
to Seattle’s proposed change in math curriculum.)

I experienced a similar situation:

I was a middle school level push-in behavior skills teacher; my students had struggles controlling their behavior.

One day coming down the hall I caught one of my students leaving class, and told her/him to go back into the classroom. The student repeatedly punched me and shoved me into the wall of lockers, went back in the classroom, then came out and did it again after seeing me watch through the window to confirm that s/he was not attacking anyone in the classroom.

When s/he returned to the classroom after the third time of punching/shoving me, I decided to walk down the hall to check on another student, per my training: "in some cases if the student is ... unwilling to comply, then we give time and space. . . wait out the situation" (this is a direct quote from my trainer).

The student then came back out of the classroom, ran about 30 feet down the hall, jumped on my back and slung me to the floor. The student was age 11 and I was 62. (I really liked this student and all my other students).

The school system determined that the incident was my fault; the above quote was testimony against me by the trainer at my dismissal hearing. The incident was on security video, and one of the episodes of punching and shoving lasted for 90 seconds. After viewing the video, the trainer said I had mis-handled the situation, although she never did specify what I mis-handled. Maybe it was when I turned away from the student during the attacks so the punches were to my side and back instead of stomach.

There was no mention of the fact that the classroom teacher did not come to the door to investigate why the student (who had an IEP for behavioral issues) went in and out 6 times during an approximately 8 minute period.

If a school system wants to get rid of a teacher, they will find a way, even if it involves saying that 2+2 is 22.

Unfortunately, as another poster mentioned, this video is not very far-fetched in this day and time! I, too, tell people not to become teachers.

Thank you for sharing. It was funny but frightening at the same time.
