Great Moments in WVEA History

The current education system fails because it treats all teachers as equals, when they aren't. Just like in the business world, some teachers do a really great job. But some teachers are awful. Like this one from West Virginia.

Thirty-eight-year-old Toni Woods, a former 6th grade teacher in Braxton County, received 4 to 20 years in prison.

Woods was arrested last March after telling police she had sex with four boys--all under the age of 16.

The former teacher said nothing outside court as a wedge of family and friends tried to hide her from photographers.

Inside the courtroom, Woods said: "I was the monster these families think I am."

Seriously. Speaking of poor teaching, here's our second Typo of the Day.

She tried tp convince the court her bizarre behavior was linked to taking Prozac and diet pills and that she was a candidate for probation or home confinement.

I can't imagine nobody caught this woman's bizarre behavior before, but what can you do?
