Nowadays teachers are younger, especially tHigh School and Middle School teachers. Some say it's great for teachers to be younger, they can relate to the students better. Others say young teachers and pre-teen/teenage students is a "train wreeck waiting to happen" .
Can Middle and High School students learn better from younger teachers? If one of the goals is to increase the numbers of qualified teachers, does it matter if they are old or young?

In this post 9-11 era security has become one of the most important things that organizations face each and every day. Whether it be a public building, a sporting event, or a subway ride everyone has the safety of their workers, the spectators, or the passengers on their mind. Schools are no different and with the number of school shootings that have taken place over the years schools today are very vigilante in their efforts in guarding the safety of their students and their teachers. I want to be very honest here though; if a parent with the wrong personality and the wrong motive gets upset enough with a teacher based upon something that happened with their child they will come into school and will seek you out for an unplanned conference, and they will demand to see you. If you work in a community based school and something happened during the day they more then likely will appear at your door last thing in the afternoon before you go home. If you work in a school where students are bused in rest assured they will appear at your door first thing in the morning. They will get in; they will bypass any blockade and will arrive at the point of battle and will spring a surprise attack. You will be unprepared and possibly be left to deal with this problem on your own for some one on one, hand to hand combat.
According to the "California Watch", with California's public school system facing economic uncertainties...some of the most financially troubled districts have been elevating the payroll for top administrators.
One is the Los Angeles Unified School District, the nation's second-largest district, which has been buried under a cumulative $2.8 billion dollar deficit for the past five years and has eliminated more than 12,000 teaching and staff positions.
Los Angeles Unified pays Superintendent John Deasy $384,948 a year, about five times the salary of the average teacher. Since 2009 the school district has raised John Deasy's salary by 32 percent.
Superintendent Deasy has attracted controversy in this position and other positions. According to the Substance News, John Deasy claims to have earned his PhD at the University of Louisville (UL) in the College of Education. The Dean of the college at the time was Robert Felner, now serving a jail term of 63 months in prison for a variety of frauds committed against the University of Louisville, and other universities, which includes misappropriation of a $649,000 federal grant. Felner was also convicted of stealing $2.3 million in research grants.
John Deasy earned his PhD directly under Felner in a period of 4 months, earning only 9 University of Louisville credits. Prior to coming to the UL, Deasy had awarded Felner's research company, the National Center on Public Education and Social Policy, a $375,000 grant from the Santa Monica district where Deasy was head.
As Superintendent, John Deasy has overseen thousands of teachers losing their jobs. Incredibly, Los Angeles teachers have not received a salary increase in almost 7 years, while the UTLA teacher's union leaders are paid up to $221,758 a year.

We all have our ideas of what LOVE looks like.
Have you ever stopped to think what it looks like to you? Do you take what you can get in relationships? Do you even love you? Many of our preconceived ideas were formed by our relationships with our parents...some are dysfunctional and misconstrued. We must ALL re-evaluate what love looks like so we can be sure to not settle for leftovers or whatever others choose to give us. To receive w
