Do You Think Teachers In North Dakota Have Summers Off?
If I were you, I'd choose my words very carefully...or your next stop is the principal's office!
Go ahead and say teachers have summers off. See how that works for ya.
Having years of experience as a radio host, I've learned my job is to entertain other than to agitate. With the exception of this certain September morning, just a few short years ago. With back to school still fresh in everyone's brain, I made a comment along the lines of...
"Well teachers, your summer vacation is over- time to get back in the classroom"
If my studio window would have been open I would have been able to hear the screeching brakes of a thousand cars pulling off the road to call me in the studio.
Bismarck Police to pay for local teacher's school supplies!
That was a tongue lashing that lasted for hours and administered by professionals who know a thing or two about keeping young punks in line. So I had to wear the dunce cap for the rest of the day.
CAN YOU EVEN IMAGINE THE BACKLASH IF A TEACHER STUCK THIS ON A KID'S HEAD IN 2021? oh...the outrage!
Speaking of outrage, one of the primary subjects of these teacher's verbal DJ assault, was the matter of THEM having to buy supplies for their classrooms. Who knew that not only did they NOT have summers off, they had to pay for their own classroom supplies! I didn't think it sounded serious enough to bring in the Bismarck Police Department...but, seems the Bismarck PD invited themselves.
Nominate your favorite teacher. Nominate your self. It's police helping teachers!
What a wonderful initiative being brought out by the Bismarck Police Department! Here's how it works...from their Facebook page
