There are some teachers who touch hearts and make an impact. Then, there are teachers like this on at Duncanville High School, who’s definition of teaching is handing out work packets while telling the class, “this is just my pay check.” Kudos to student Jeff Bliss who called her out on not giving a proper education. His amazing verbal takedown only has her humming “yeah” and “bye.”
Bad teachers like this give good teachers a good name. We should all take this time to reflect on how lucky a lot of us are, that we have had incredible teachers. That, or take the time to remember all the teachers who gave us an unnecessarily hard time.
Twitter is a great way to follow your favourite celebs and athletes, but some of the things they tweet are a little bit careless.
Filled with misspellings, grammatical errors and often times, gibberish that nobody can understand, sometimes I wish there was an autocorrect tool I could use to immediately brush up those mistakes (Don’t blame me! I had to take a grammar exam in first year university!).
But upon seeing some photos of a group of second graders practicing their skills by correcting a bunch of embarrassing tweets by NFL players, I now know that I have faith in the future generation.
Thank God, for the world’s educators. Teaching, you’re doing it right.
He may be a bit late in the game, but Drake is officially a high school graduate!
“97% on my final exam. 88% in the course,” the 25-year-old rapper tweeted on Tuesday. “One of the greatest feelings in my entire life. As of tonight I have graduated high school!”
Hitting the books this summer, Drake has previously said that he wanted to make his mom proud by getting a high school diploma. And now that he has achieved that goal, he even took the time to thank those who have helped him along the way.
“Thank you to my teacher Kim Janzen for spending the last 5 months working tirelessly with me!! OVO SOUND,” Drake added.
While we would have loved to see a candid of you in a cap and gown, it’s nice to know that education is a priority in his life.
It’s pretty clear Drake has been spending quality time in his home city of Toronto for the summer. If he’s not chilling out at Yorkville or preparing for the third annual OVO Festival (which also features the likes of A$AP Rocky, 2 Chainz and The Weeknd), he’s now trying to finish high school after dropping out at age 15.
“I’m actually spending my summer graduating high school,” he said in an interview with Now Toronto. “That’s my main focus after OVO Fest. I only have one credit left, and I’m really excited about that.”
Drake of course, was filming Degrassi: The Next Generation during his high school years. He has said in the past that he wants to one day show his mother his high school diploma.
Good on him! It’s nice to see to him realizing the importance of having an education. And seeing that he’s doing it to make his mom proud, that just warms my heart.
But on another note, the rapper was spotted this week getting a Freshly Squeezed at Scarborough Town Centre. Considering that most of my peers gathered at that same mall after school everyday, looks like Drake’s already fitting in with everyone!
Don’t even think about pestering this kid to write a poem for you. Because if you do, all you will get in return is a sassy haiku like this:
Posted on Facebook by teacher Eric K. Carr from Tolson Elementary in Tuczson, Arizona, he posted this caption along with the photo: “From one of my fourth graders at Tolson Elementary. Yes, folks, the future is in good hands. The leaders of tomorrow aren’t just intelligent, creative, expressive, and driven, but have a wicked sense of humor too. ”
If it were up to me, I would have given the child all the gold stars.
