I am certified and I do take continuing education. I am also smart enough to look at what the facts are based on what I, my fellow teachers and other
teachers and coaches I know see every day. Studies are easily manipulated, reality is not.
P.S.- I appreciate you talking down to me and treating me like an ass. I guess you are an excellent example of this thread.
You seem to have a hair-trigger. Where did I treat you like an a**?
Since your original post didn't state whether you were certified or perhaps just a temp hire, I merely suggested that if you were NOT certified, you
should consider taking such courses. Furthermore, most school systems do not present material that has not been thoroughly screened for applicability
to the school's system. Furthermore, I have taught such presentations to school districts, and am very familiar with what is presented. I don't know
of any reputable school district that does NOT consider environment, such as media, to be a factor in outcomes. To deny that goes against virtually
every teacher's union in this country. In fact, it is one of the main reasons that teacher organizations have modified their methods of delivery, to
include those very media that influence students.
It concerns me that you have this belligerent attitude and hair-trigger reaction. I worry that if you are so quick to fly off the handle over an
innocent suggestion, how you would handle a student's question.
