These are the same people who get all in my face every time I try to tell a story about something that happened in class, complaining that I'm twisting the story around to make myself look good. And yet when I let the other side speak for themselves, they get all outraged because now I'm supposedly "holding back" my version. "You were there", they whine. "Why don't you spill the beans?"
Don't they get it? THESE ARE THE FACTS that got me kicked out of school. Shortly after the little Halloween incident I told you about in February, Mrs. Skull instructed all the Cooperating teachers to begin "documenting" my behavior. Well, these are the "documents" she got, and it was on the basis of these that she demanded the University pull me out of the practicum. The University did not hesitate.
So unless it's clear to you already that they had ample reason to kick me out, why don't you wait to see what else is in the diary? I've posted three days of entries from Mr. Tram's diary. Here is the fourth entry. There are still two more to come.

Started with Pythagoras then linguistic analysis of the vowels in English (about 15 minutes). I and many students have no idea what Mr. Green is talking about. As more students showed up, he repeated the experiment yesterday and some kid informed him that it was done yesterday but he did it anyway. There is no progress in the curriculum, no assignment given (after 5 classes), no lesson plan. He talk about random topics that are no related to the course. I tried very to remind him to have lesson plans and well-structured way to teach but he says “This is how I teach” and refuses to take any advise from me. We will have a meeting soon and his teaching block with me might not be continued to go on if he continues to teach the way he taught.
