Happy Independence Day. You’re Fired.

That was the message today to 250 DC teachers and 500 teachers’ aides who missed a certification deadline this week. Official termination letters go out on Monday. Chancellor Rhee thinks it won’t be a problem, as these were “expected” terminations, and none of the firees have classrooms assigned. Well, I guess it’s good we knew it was coming?

I live and work in the District of Columbia. I write at We Love DC, a blog I helped start, I work at Technolutionary, a company I helped start, and I’m happy doing both. I enjoy watching baseball, cooking, and gardening. I grow a mean pepper, keep a clean scorebook, and wash the dishes when I’m done. Read Why I Love DC.
