Early Childhood Education Teachers: Remember, We Are Adults Outside the Classroom! by Ron Howard
I recently made a joke about John Barrasso on Facebook. I said, "John B. likes giving Australian kisses to M. McMconnell, aka French kisses down under.” I was promptly chastised by other teachers for being an Early Childhood Educator (ECE) and making such a remark.
Honestly, I didn't think it was all that dirty, but there have been calls to get me fired. I'm an outspoken person when it comes to current issues and I make jokes to keep it light. What people need to realize is that we ECEs are adults – not Mr. Rogers all the time – and we have constitutional voices that we can use as we please.
It is sad that there are holier than thou educators who, when they fart, only dogs and bats can hear it. I live in a very red state. I'm a Native American. I'm also a Democrat because being Native just wasn't self-deprecating enough.
I wish all who read this peace and prosperity.
P.S. Hone your sense of humor if need be. Thank you.
