A teacher who doesn't deserve to teach
“The teacher stopped reading and told us no one comes down the chimney,” Jamey said, curling into a ball on the couch, bracing her chin on her knees, her voice shrinking away like melting ice cream. “She said our parents buy the presents, not Santa.” [Emphasis added]
Got to love that metaphor. What kind of moron tells young children that Santa Claus doesn't exist?
Farrisi said she considered approaching the school’s administration with her concerns about how to handle Santa Claus in class. Instead, she said, she decided to add a disclaimer to her lesson.
“Those same children are going to know someday that what their parents taught them is false,” she ex-plained. “There is no Santa Claus.”
I know what Farrisi was thinking. Kids are just little adults and they should not be lied to. I will bet $10k that this woman did not vote for Bush. Damn hippies.
