On my previous blog, I mentioned why I opposed the involvement of an evangelical group in training Barnet Council officers. I mentioned a certain Miss O'Donovan who used to teach at St Vincents School. She was without peer in the arts of traumatising infant children. As I mentioned, both Mrs Angry and myself benefitted from her "teaching methods". As I stated, I doubt anyone who was taught by her could take any horror film seriously, as we had a year of her scaring the living daylights out of us.
Anyway, here are ten reasons why you should not employ her tactics when teaching infants.
1 - They might end up like me !
2 - They might end up like Mrs Angry
3 - They will grow up with a complete lack of respect for authority
4 - They will become very good at hiding
5 - They will have nightmares years after
6 - They will not be able to take horror movies seriously
7 - They will break into spontanious applause when the witch dies in the Wizard of Oz
8 - They will not be able to bump into a schoolmate without recounting tales of horror
9 - They will never be able to see teaching as an honourable profession
10 - They will never be able to hear any old lady with a certain Irish accent without feeling terrified
Have a lovely Sunday !
