NOTE: THIS IS A SPOOF ON THE REAL SITUATION
There is an interim acting chairperson in the language department of Big City High School. This chairperson has never taught any foreign language and even lacks some of the basic skills necessary to communicate in English. This guy has taught before, but his license is in physical education and he has no concept as to what should be going on in an academic class.
Things are not going smoothly with this guy in charge. Kids in French classes are being given Spanish tests and Chinese language kids are taking tests in Russian. Italian teachers are being told they have to teach Korean and the Korean teacher has been assigned to translate for anyone who needs a translator. There is even a class of hearing impaired students, taking a signed language class from a tape.
The interim acting chairperson is smart enough to know he can't do it alone. He formed a committee of experienced teachers and talks constantly about "picking" their brains. He also passes off their work taking their work as his own, yet he is still not competent enough to do the job properly.
Needless to say, the students and the teachers at Big City High School are not happy. A girl studying Russian was in tears when this guy screamed at her for not being able to answer an exam that was written in Greek. The German teacher had a meltdown when she was told she had to teach Hebrew. I could go on and on with the stories I've been told, but I am sure you get my point.
The guy I am talking about is young and very good looking. While some think he is not too bright, I know he is is right on target when it comes to looking out for himself. All the little peons who have worked with him this year are praying he doesn't get the job permanently.
