in Darby Tells San Angelo Chamber Public Schools are under Serious Political Attack in Texas
@ Janet Senatore: Hello...I just wanted to put something out there. I am a public school teacher who has taught at both private and public schools. I find it sad that people think that public school teachers are not actually teaching, due to the declining academic abilities coming out of the public education system. There are too many things that contribute to this outcome for me to list, but I'd like to highlight a couple of points. First of all, the socioeconomic differences in the student populations of private schools vs. public schools make a big difference. There are exceptions to every rule, of course, but in private schools the majority of students are coming from families who value education. Families where many of the parents are college graduates, themselves, and the family culture is one that fosters lifelong learning. Families that are taking care of the child's physical and emotional needs at home. Often times private school teachers deal with much fewer discipline problems and are walking into a classroom of students that are much more prepared and ready to learn. On the contrary, in public schools, those students coming from similar family backgrounds are becoming the minority. You'd be heartbroken to know what some of these kids are dealing with on a daily basis. When survival is your number one goal each day, sitting in a classroom and actively learning can seem like a joke. Public school teachers cannot teach these students without earning their trust and forming a relationship with them first, if that is even possible in the short year that we have them for. They won't simply listen to what is being taught because it's the right thing to do, or because it will benefit them to know the information. Public school teachers are not only playing teacher, but trying to play parent as well. Hands are tied nowadays in terms of discipline. Many students welcome ISS. You, as the teacher, are attempting to go back and correct years of misconceptions that many students have formed which prevent them from wanting to learn. Meanwhile you are trying to cram as much content down them as you can so they can pass the big test. You are trying to be their everything (teacher, parent, counselor, disciplinarian) and praying that it is good enough to make a difference in their lives. That being said, I love my job. I got into it because I love the kids. I don't care what they pay me. They could pay me less than they do now and I'd still do it...so long as I can make enough to feed my family and cover the bills, then that's all I need. I, for one, think that the low pay helps to ensure that teachers are in it for the right reasons (not that I wouldn't mind higher pay). Whether they teach at a private, public, or charter school, doesn't matter. They should be doing it because they love the kids first and foremost...not for the money. Anyways, the point I'm getting at, Janet, is that unless you've walked in both sets of shoes (which for all I know maybe you have), then I don't think it's fair for you to pass such insensitive judgement over public school teachers. God bless. :)
Why is it that funding for public schools is never enough, yet the private schools function (and actually TEACH) on a fraction of that amount? The students that come out of our schools have trouble doing basic arithmetic and writing a complete paragraph....don't even get me started on their lack of spelling ability!

in San Angelo Catholic Diocese Wades Into Illegal Immigration Controversy
In the article: “We say, first, to DACA youth: regardless of your immigration status, you are a child of God. You are welcome in the Catholic Church. We support you and will advocate for you,” the statement begins, setting the tone.
OK. Let them welcome them into the Catholic Church in their native lands be it Mexico, Honduras, El Salvador, Guatemala, or any of the other hellholes of Central or South America. I see they are doing really well in Venezuela.
Someone needs to get back on their medicine quick.
in San Angelo Man Dies in Rollover Crash Saturday on Loop 306
I think the above comment is very inappropriate. I don't know the people involved in the crash so I don't assume anything, nor should you. We don't know what took place in the vehicle to make her crash. Yes, there are bad drivers in San Angelo. I see them on the road every day. This was a horrible ACCIDENT where someone DIED. Show some empathy and respect for the families involved.
I opine that something in the water in Tom Green County makes some people absolutely, irretrievably nutty. I see no other explanation for this twaddle.
We Black and White "whigs" founded America, the actual prophesied "Zion" by all the Bible's given signs, in express covenant with our named Sovereign, the Creator of the universe, God Almighty, the Deity, to escape the "Wall Street of slavery" for over 2,000 years, the "real Anti-Christ" "engine for enslaving mankind." Viz. Th. Jefferson to S. Kercheval, 19jan10.
Latin America was not so blessed - as their ubiquitous slums and brothels so avidly attest - under the rule of a few rich and pedophile homosexual "monkish religion."
Their satanic stratagem, now playing "catch up" with DACA, to promote and protect a logistically and politically supported organized army of pliant Hispanic Roman Catholic pawns for invasion and conquest of God's "Promised Land" is openly published for every true American Patriot's eyes to read: "National Pastoral Plan for Hispanic Ministry," Office of Publishing and Promotion Services, United States Catholic Conference, No. 199-7, is available online or at Rome's, the "Risen Babylon's" local quasi-military cathedral "outpost" library.
Their "food bank" front headquartered in Atlanta, with counterparts in each state no doubt, intentionally coordinates with illegals to receive free food at distribution points established statewide.
N.B. "Whig," signifying the utopian ideals of divine Individual Sovereignty by which America's Black and White Founders self-identified, means "anti-Roman Catholic." Viz. Hallam and Macaulay.
So many bad drivers here--so few POLICE!!!
in The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly From Week 2 of High School Football
A rebuilding year in the works for Christoval. Injuries, freshman quarterback etc. they are playing their hearts out, but all years can't be winning years especially in small towns.
It should be worth noting that Lake View football team will continue to do there best and represent their high school with pride. With the number of programs available to these students many have opportunities to achieve greatness in their life. Let's keep these programs in order to have these students engaged in these extra curricular activities.
