Men In The Classroom

I won't recount my own experience in this arena--it sets my blood boiling. I think Dr. Helen's hit the nail on the head.

We have a number of young men teaching at our school. But our principal does make sure that they at least dress professionally. That doesn't mean that he is as tough as he should be. I have already talked about the guy who verbally harasses young teachers and gets away with it. And I know that it's a headache my principal has to deal with every year-firing someone for inappropriate contact with a student. My own son is majoring in history and considering teaching. I would give him the same advice I give my student teachers-don't even think about it-because teenagers are notorious gossips and you will get caught. Too many people in this generation seem to think that it's okay to scratch any itch in public, if you get my drift.
