My thoughts on what this student Jeff did after you watch this ....
Good for this kid!! Could he have handled it in a better way? Probably. But, a kid who actually cares about his education ... AWESOME!! I remember being in high school and I had A LOT of GREAT teachers, but had a few who I felt could care less. When I was in high school, I felt like they wanted me to act like an adult, but wouldnt treat me like one! How does that make sense? It's all about mutual respect and CARING!! When a kid knows you respect them and that you truly care about what happens to them ... they respect you BACK and don't want to disappoint you. When I got in trouble as a kid, no spanking would hurt me, being "grounded" did not effect me! BUT, when my Mom or even some teachers would look me in the eye and tell me they were "disappointed" in me ... UGH! It would get me every time and I would realize how BAD I messed up and would not want to do that again.
I am glad they did not discipline this kid Jeff and I like him even more that he acknowledges he could have handled it better, but I think we have all reacted in that fashion when it comes to something we are passionate about. Now, with that being said, I realize teachers have one of the HARDEST JOBS IN THE WORLD and are very under paid!!! Props to the teachers out there, thank you for all you do and do not let a couple less "passionate" teachers ruin our perception on the majority of all our teachers who DO CARE! #LongHairDOcare
Timeflies stopped by today and I have not been this impressed with a "new artist/group" in a LONG time! Wow! Awesome! I will post the interview soon. In the meantime check out their new single which I LOVE!!
The CEO of Mike Jefferies, literally makes me sick. He encompasses so much of what is wrong with our society. The bullying, the discrimination and so many awful things that kid's deal with ... he helps fuel. The retailer purposely excludes larger customers by not carrying womens pants past the size of 10. In addition, the CEO say's the only reason Abercrombie carries XL and XXL is for larger "athletes". You dont want "fat" people wearing your clothes .. whatever... but THIS IS WHAT PISSES ME OFF. These particular comments that Mr. CEO made...
“In every school there are the cool and popular kids, and then there are the
not-so-cool kids,” He then continues to tell the website interviewing him. “Candidly, we go after the cool kids. We go after the attractive all-American kid with a great attitude and a lot of friends. A lot of people don’t belong (in Abercrombie's clothes), and they can’t belong.
Are we exclusionary? Absolutely. Those companies that are in trouble are trying
to target everybody: young, old, fat, skinny. But then you become totally
vanilla. You don’t alienate anybody, but you don’t excite anybody, either,”
WHO THE F are you to dictate who is "cool" or not!!!?? GTFOH! By the way, you want to know what Mr. Big Shot CEO Mike Jefferies "Captian Cool Guy" looks like? Google this idiot... He looks like the love child of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Frankenstien ... with too much botox.
