ESL 53: Maybe You’re Not a Good Principal



Download


Tina was going back to school for her third master’s degree. She was a Special Education teacher, but she couldn’t take her job anymore, so she had quit. The kids were out of control. There were too many of them in one classroom for her to manage effectively. The school administration ignored her pleas to add teacher assistants. They ignored her complaints that some of the kids were simply little monsters. They were discipline problems that other teachers had shunted off to Special Education.

The administration didn’t even respond to her complaint that one oversized young student had pushed her down one day onto the floor. Tina wanted to call the police, but the school principal talked her out of it with promises to improve things. Two weeks later, not one promise had been fulfilled.

Tina angrily visited the principal, who told her that if she didn’t have the patience to wait for things to improve, maybe she wasn’t cut out to be a teacher.

“How dare you! The issue is not whether I’m cut out to be a teacher,” she angrily replied. “I am a teacher, and a damn good one. But no teacher can get along forever with inadequate supplies, with overcrowded classrooms, with students who are dumped into her class, and with students who attack her. And especially,” she growled, “with idiots like you in charge who continually ignore the needs of Special Education students and teachers.”

Có lẽ anh không phải là một hiệu trưởng tốt

Tina vừa trở lại trường để học bằng thạc sĩ thứ ba của mình. Cô là một giáo viên Giáo Dục Đặc Biệt, nhưng cô không thể chịu đựng công việc của mình thêm chút nào nữa, vì vậy cô thôi việc. Những đứa trẻ thì vượt khỏi tầm kiểm soát. Có quá nhiều học sinh trong một lớp học với cô để có thể quản lý hiệu quả được. Ban điều hành nhà trường phớt lờ lời kêu gọi giúp đỡ của cô là thêm phụ tá. Họ phớt lờ những lời than phiền rằng có vài đứa trẻ tuyệt đối là những con quỷ nhỏ. Chúng có những vần đề kỉ luật nên những giáo viên khác chuyển chúng đến trường Giáo Dục Đặc Biệt.

Ban điều hành thậm chí không phản hồi việc cô bị một học sinh quá cỡ đẩy nằm xuống sàn ngày nọ. Tina muốn gọi cảnh sát, nhưng hiệu trưởng nhà trường nói cô bỏ qua vời lời hứa sẽ cải thiện tình hình. Hai tuần sau, không có một lời hứa nào được thực hiện.

Tina giận dữ tới gặp hiệu trưởng, anh ta nói nếu cô không có kiên nhẫn để chờ những trục trặc được cải thiện, có lẽ cô sẽ bị đuổi việc.

"Anh dám làm! Vấn đề không phải là tôi có bị đuổi việc hay không," cô giận dữ trả lời. "Tôi là một giáo viên, một giáo viên tốt chết tiệt. Nhưng không giáo viên nào có thể kéo dài mãi với những cung ứng không tương xứng, với lớp học quá đông, với những đức trẻ xả rác bừa bãi trong lớp, và với những đứa học trò tấn công cô ta. Và đặc biệt," cô rống lên, "với những thằng ngốc chịu trách nhiệm như anh lại tiếp tục phớt lờ những nhu cầu của học sinh và giáo viên Giáo Dục Đặc Biệt."

Tina sẽ trở lại trường học để lấy bằng thạc sỉ thứ ba của cô. Cô là một giáo viên giáo dục đặc biệt, nhưng cô không thể đảm nhận công việc đó được nữa, vì thế cô đã xin thôi việc. Lũ trẻ đã vượt khỏi tầm kiểm soát. Có quá nhiều học trò trong một lớp học để cô có thể dạy bảo một cách hiệu quả. Ban quản lý trường học cố tình không để ý đến yêu cầu khẩn thiết của cô về việc bổ sung thêm một trợ giáo. Họ đã phớt lờ những than phiền của cô rằng một vài đứa trẻ thật sự là một lũ tiểu yêu. Chúng có những vấn đề về kỷ luật nên các giáo viên khác đã chuyển đến trường giáo dục đặc biệt.

Ban quản lý thậm chí không trả lời than phiền của cô về một học trò quá khổ đã đẩy cô ngã xuống sàn trong một ngày nọ. Tina muốn gọi cảnh sát, nhưng hiệu trưởng thuyết phục cô từ bỏ ý định đó với lời hứa sẽ cải thiện mọi thứ. Hai tuần sau đó, không một lời hứa nào được thực hiện.

Tina bực mình đến gặp hiệu trưởng, người đã nói với cô rằng nếu cô không kiên nhẫn chờ đợi mọi thứ cải tiến, có thể cô sẽ không được làm giáo viên nữa.

"Ông dám làm chuyện đó sao! Vấn đề không phải tôi có còn là một giáo viên hay không," Cô trả lời một cách giận dữ." Tôi là một giáo viên, một giáo viên giỏi chết tiệt. Nhưng không một giáo viên nào có thể xoay sở mãi với chế độ trợ cấp không thích đáng, với những lớp học đông nghẹt, với lũ học trò luôn xả rác bừa bãi trong lớp học, và với lũ học trò đã tấn công cô giáo. Và đâc biệt,"cô gào lên,"với những thằng ngốc như ông phụ trách, là người liên tục phớt lờ những nhu cầu của học sinh và giáo viên Giáo dục Đặc biệt."

Tina was going back to school for her third master’s degree. She was a Special Education teacher, but she couldn’t take her job anymore, so she had quit. The kids were out of control. There were too many of them in one classroom for her to manage effectively. The school administration ignored her pleas to add teacher assistants. They ignored her complaints that some of the kids were simply little monsters. They were discipline problems that other teachers had shunted off to Special Education.
Tina quay trở lại trường để lấy bằng thạc sĩ thứ ba của cô. Cô là một giáo viên giáo dục đặc biệt, nhưng cô không thể tiếp tục công việc của mình nữa, vì thế cô đã bỏ việc. Nhiều đứa trẻ không thể kiểm soát. Đã có quá học sinh trong một lớp học của cô để quản lý đạt hiệu quả. Quản lý nhà trường bỏ qua lời đề nghị của cô để thêm giáo viên trợ giảng. Họ bỏ qua khiếu nại của cô cho rằng một số các em đơn giản chỉ là những con quỷ nhỏ . Chúng có vấn đề kỷ luật với giáo viên khác nên đã chuyển chúng đến trường giáo dục đặc biệt.

The administration didn’t even respond to her complaint that one oversized young student had pushed her down one day onto the floor. Tina wanted to call the police, but the school principal talked her out of it with promises to improve things. Two weeks later, not one promise had been fulfilled.
Ban điều hành thậm chí không đáp ứng lời khiếu nại của cô rằng một số học sinh to lớn một ngày nọ đã đẩy cô xuống sàn.Tina muốn gọi cho cảnh sát, nhưng hiệu trưởng bảo cô hãy từ từ với lời hứa hẹn để chấn chỉnh lại điều đó. Hai tuần sau đó, không một lời hứa nào được thực hiện.

Tina angrily visited the principal, who told her that if she didn’t have the patience to wait for things to improve, maybe she wasn’t cut out to be a teacher.
Tina giận dữ lên gặp hiệu trưởng, ngài nói với cô rằng nếu cô không có tính kiên nhẫn chờ đợi sự cải thiện thay đổi , có thể cô sẽ không làm giáo viên nữa.

“How dare you! The issue is not whether I’m cut out to be a teacher,” she angrily replied. “I am a teacher, and a damn good one. But no teacher can get along forever with inadequate supplies, with overcrowded classrooms, with students who are dumped into her class, and with students who attack her. And especially,” she growled, “with idiots like you in charge who continually ignore the needs of Special Education students and teachers.”
“Ông dám làm sao! Vấn đề không phải là tôi có còn làm giáo viên hay không” Cô giận dữ trả lời. “ Tôi là một giáo viên một trong những người bị chê bai nhất. Nhưng không có giáo viên nào mãi mãi có thể nhận được những nguồn cung cấp không đầy đủ, với một lớp học quá đông đúc, với những học sinh quậy phá trong lớp, và với những học sinh tấn công cô giáo. Và đặc biệt “cô gào lên” với người đần độn phụ trách như ông lại liên tục bỏ qua các nhu cầu của học sinh và giáo viên giáo dục đặc biệt.”
