just thought I'd pass on some humor sent to me by one of the teachers in my
program --


*The next Survivor*

Have you heard about the next planned “Survivor” show?

Three businessmen and three businesswomen will be dropped in an
elementary school
classroom for 6 weeks. Each business person will be provided with a copy of
their school district's curriculum, and a class of 28 students.

Each class will have five learning-disabled children, three with A.D.D., one
gifted child, and two who speak limited English. Three will be labelled as
severe behaviour problems.

Each business person must complete lesson plans at least 3 days in advance,
with annotations for curriculum objectives, and modify, organize, or
create materials
accordingly. They will be required to teach students, handle misconduct,
implement technology, document attendance, write referrals, correct
homework, make bulletin boards, compute grades, complete report cards,
document benchmarks, communicate with parents, and arrange parent

They must also supervise recess and monitor the hallways. In addition,
they will
complete drills for fire, tornadoes, or shooting attacks. They must attend
workshops, (100 hours), faculty meetings, union meetings, and curriculum
development meetings.

They must also tutor those students who are behind, and strive to get their
2 non-English speaking children proficient. If they are sick or having a bad
day they must not let it show.

Each day they must incorporate reading, writing, math, science, and social
studies into the program. They must maintain discipline and provide an
educationally stimulating environment at all times.

The business people will only have access to the golf course on the
weekends, but on their new salary they will not be able to afford it anyway.
There will be no access to vendors who want to take them out to lunch, and
lunch will be limited to 30 minutes, 10 of which must be spent walking
your students
to lunch, getting them through the cafeteria lines and seating them at the
correct table.

On days when they do not have recess duty, the business people will be
to use the staff restroom - as long as another survival candidate is
supervising their class.

They will be provided with two 40-minute planning periods per week while their
students are at specials. If the copier is operable, they may make copies of
necessary materials at this time.

The business people must continually advance their education on their own
time, and pay for this advanced training themselves. This can be
accomplished by moonlighting at a second job or marrying someone with money.
The winner will be allowed to return to his or her job.
