Apparently, it takes a lot of work to fire someone with a horrible mental illness. The school I attend (at least for another week or so) is a prime example. This week a teacher went ballistic and did a song-and-dance routine while teaching her class about how much she hates the faculty she works with (she’s apparently been found ‘teaching’ to a literal class of nobody before too, so this isn’t a first incident). For about a week, she would update the “status” part of her Facebook every second minute with a new rant about someone who has negatively affected her. She mentioned specific names of teachers who I’ve had or am aware of at the school, who she “hates” or feels are “useless”. In one such ramble, she said that she’d be world-famous for something she did at the college on April 14, 2009. Creepy. She also posted the contents of confidential notices given to her by the college asking her to stay home and notify them if she was going to come in.
She’s been Facebook-messaging students asking them to invite her to convocation in June, as well, and there are actually students who have said they would do so! Yep, that sounds like a safe idea.
Mental illness is serious, but when it threatens the security of students and staff, the person should be fired and locked down. As far as I’m aware, the school is taking all the precautionary measures that they can to prevent a teacher-reenactment of Columbine from happening, but there is a strange lack of legal action being taken, considering the amount of threat this person may pose.
The point of all this is, I thought this school drove me nuts. Turns out, far from it.
Moral of the story: For your safety, sanity and financial security, never ever attend Niagara College.
