I’m suppose to be in some training thing provided by [Catapult Learning] but I decided to hide from the suck in one of the classrooms that has internet. 😀
I already sat through one session two days ago and… Well, think about this. She’s supposedly teaching me how to teach and I’m fucking bored out of my mind! I mean… I guess that’s the usual protocol for dealing with adults but… MAN! I already got busted though and might have to go in during one of the breaks. 😛
Schools Waste Money
No surprise there eh? But… I’m learning that it’s kind of not their fault. You have companies like “Catapult Failing” out to get all their dollars. I MIGHT be speaking too soon, but I doubt it. I heard the actual dollar amount our school is going to be (forced to be) spending on this company and… Yeah, a waste. Check out their “mission statement”:
Our mission is to be the preferred partner of schools, school districts, community organizations and families, providing research-based educational and support services designed to improve student achievement.
They say it plan as day in the mission statement. Let me translate the bolded part for you, “to be the preferred destination of large sums of money of”.
Anyhoo… I’ll see how it plays out as the year goes by. I’d feel a little better about that company if their mission statement started with something about helping kids pwn at life. But that’s not REALLY what they’re all about. Bitches.
