Just to clarify, I donít teach in the regular school system. I do teach food safety classes to restaurant managers. Itís an 8-hour certification class plus 2-hour exam and Iíve done it up to 50 times a year. In addition Iíve taught English at the middle school and college levels in China though that was years ago. Today, my teaching is in regards to restaurant managers based on onsite audit findings. Using ďteacherĒ as a handle seems to make everyone think in terms of their own education or that of their kids. However, there are those of us who teach beyond that level of classroom.
I just find the pre-election rhetoric about saving American jobs, and the post-election rhetoric of saving foreign jobs ironic. Given the choices of who to vote for: someone who took personally attacking others for their actions to a new level vs someone who hid her actions in tens of thousands of private emails and lied about it not much of a choice. We ended up with a person who has been identified as having given us over 3,000 outright lies or mistruths in his time as president and I donít know now which one would have been worse. But we have a president who plays golf every weekend instead of actively leading the country (after publicly chiding Obama about playing golf 8 times in his 8 years as president). We elected him and now we have to live with that decision.
