Posted October 02, 2018 04:12:16 The American Conservatives is reporting that a former teacher who is now working as an educator in California has come out against her former employer and is calling for her dismissal from the teaching profession.
A video posted on Facebook by teacher trainer and educator, Lisa Henson, shows how she is currently doing her job and how she plans to change the way teachers are paid.
Henson is a teacher in the state of California and she is part of a training program for new teachers called Teacher Tools Online.
“I have to teach my students in a way that they are capable of doing it in a timely manner.
I have to keep my students engaged.
I need to be able to do what I want to do, which is teaching.
I want my students to learn and to have fun,” she said in the video.
Henson is a self-described feminist and a self proclaimed feminist.
“It’s just not my nature to be a teacher.
And to be that way, it just doesn’t feel like the right way to be,” she continued.
“So I feel like I need a change in the way I teach and the way we teach.
And I think I’ve done everything I can in my career to make that happen.”
Henson has been in the classroom since she was 14 years old and has been teaching since the age of 17.
“My students are my life.
I’ve been a teacher for so long and I’ve seen the importance of that, and I want them to know it,” she added.
Hentons students have been a part of her life since she started her teaching career.
“And I can’t help but be inspired by the kids, and the parents, and teachers that have supported me, because that is what I’m really drawn to.
They’ve supported me in everything that I’ve tried to do,” she explained.
“They’ve supported my passion and I’m inspired by that.
And so I just feel that I need an opportunity to give back to my community.”
Hentens first class started on September 13 and she said that she has been working at the school for over two years.
“Now, I’m on a two-year contract, so I’m trying to stay there and help the school, but I’ve had a couple of people come up to me and say, ‘We’d love to help out in some way,'” she said.
Hentsons students are also in need of help in other ways.
“There’s a lot of things that they don’t have access to in the classrooms.
There’s a lack of staff and support,” she pointed out.
Hening has been doing her part to make the classroom more accessible to students and has already made a few improvements in the school. “
That’s my goal, my goal is to create the environment where they can learn, and learn and learn, with the kind of fun, enthusiasm, and energy that they need in order to be successful,” she concluded.
Hening has been doing her part to make the classroom more accessible to students and has already made a few improvements in the school.
She said that in the past year, she has introduced new students to art and crafts, added an art and craft lab, and made new art for the school room.
“In addition to that, we’ve got a lot more art projects coming up for the students, and we’ve also started to create a few more art shows in the room, which has been great,” she noted.
“But I do think it’s the one thing that has been really, really hard, because I’m the only teacher in that room.
And that’s why I want all of our students to feel comfortable in their own classroom, and feel like they have that connection to the art, the school is there, the teachers are there, and so it’s hard to make sure that everything is working.”
Hensons current class consists of one teacher, two assistants, and three students.
She has been providing her students with free books and supplies and has even made a special program for students with special needs.
“This year, I’ve just been doing a little bit more of that because I have more staff, so the staff are helping out, and it’s getting a little better,” she stated.
“The students are enjoying it.
They’re having fun.
And it’s also a little more affordable for them.
So it’s been a good experience.”
Hentson’s videos show her giving students art supplies, using her art studio to teach and teaching the students.
“If you’re a student and you want to learn about art, and you don’t want to go to art school, I have classes, I can teach you about art in a safe, fun way.
So you’re not going to get burned out or hurt,” she adds.
