I am sitting in some "staff development," listening to this woman, go on and on about her agenda. Always her agenda. Always she pushes her personal academic agenda onto all of us. It is so tiring.
And it is also one reason why people leave this profession. Their ears start bleeding and they have to retire.
Oh, and after they sent us off in small groups to talk about an article and come up with some ideas on things we can do in our school, I offered our group's idea. The response? An unequivocal no. Of course.
Don't ask for my ideas if you don't want to hear them!
