As has been previously reported on this pages, Mr J, or as he was affectionately known, Mr Bowtie, had promised me a demo lesson which never came to fruition. In his cross examination at my 3020-a hearing Mr J was asked;
"Do you recall if Mr. Zucker asked you during that post observation conference if you could provide him with a demo lesson?"
Mr J, being the man that he is replied;
"Not to my knowledge. Whether he asked for it, but we had Teacher's College working in the building and there was an opportunity for demonstration lessons to occur, but I don't remember that specifically."Now mind you, the first time I asked for a demo lesson from Mr J was November 9, 2012. At this point I had zero staff development on the Cult of Lucy Calkins nor had a TC hack come to visit me. But I digress. The cross examination continued with him still being asked about me asking for a demo lesson.
Q.You don't remember him specifically asking you to provide him with a demo lesson? Mr J: Right. Q. And what is a demo lesson to your understanding? Mr J: That's when someone models a lesson about how to deliver a lesson.That he doesn't recall, but he remembers the notebooks. Let's refresh his memory.
Listen here as Mr J promises me a demo lesson on November 9, 2012.
But maybe we should give Mr J the benefit of the doubt, no? Perhaps he misremembered? What about when I asked him on January 31, 2013 for a demo lesson (Listen here) and his response to my request was;
"Absolutely, but before I do that DR Coviello will send you to a workshop with a TC representative , and we'll talk further on that. But if you want a demonstration lesson from me, fine, OK, (And here he tries to intimidate me in tough guy voice) but whatever I decide to demonstrate you will do it exactly...so we'll talk about it."
I'm still waiting that demo lesson Raj! Where is it? Even the first week of March of 2013 when I asked DR Alison Coviello; Principal and Ed.D. of PS 154 in the Bronx and she replied (listen here!).
I've always believed that I had never received those demo lessons because it went against the grand plan of the conspiracy that DR Alison Coviello; Principal and Ed.D. of PS 154 in the Bronx had hatched against me. But then again Mr J, or Mr Bowtie never gave me those lesson plans because he was just to inept and incompetent to give me a demo lesson.
Listen here as Mr Bowtie attempts to explain how to integrate Character Education and The Cult of Lucy Calkins.
What a maroon. One would assume that Raj would have decided to be a man. How sad.
That's it for now, stay tuned for more fun with audio and the most inept AP ever, Rajendra Jimenez Jailall.
