Jane, Often I have thought of you. Especially your student during
the Maya Lin dialogue
This is Appalling! Especially her position. Would she expect to do
the work for a student in a science fair. This really is going too
far. I just can't bare when I hear how some of you are treated. I
don't know if this is a solution but I would keep the letter perhaps
even copy it and keep it on file. I'd document this stuff> it may
seem little and frivolous to them but really would you go into a
science mid term and expect her to figure out what's wrong with your
volcano not spouting? Just an analogy> but you never know when
something will come back to haunt you and whether you are dealing
with a back stabber or not. If they could understand how
interrupting your class is just as disruptive in teaching a lesson
as theirs would be.
Don't let it get you down> her superiority or not> she knows she was
way out of line. Sometimes when people are arrogant and demanding
it's because they are intimidated by what is confronting them and
never learned a polite way of asking for help!
