THEY really have to stop picking Kim Katzenmeyer to lead any discussion on good behavior. She does not know the definition. I have included part of the Evansville School Boards agenda packet. Read what good old Kim had to say . Evidently Kim is part of the employee compensation committee. The question was asked ” What makes a good educator? ” This is what this committee put together in regards to that question. ( see inserts above.” Its all laughable because Kim in particular does not know or follow some of the talking points that put into answering that question.
Like ‘ treating students with dignity.” She is a horrible teacher, and very disrespectful to students. She is known as the ‘ bitch’ around school because of how she treats students. AS for motivation ? NO she tells certain students they will never graduate when they do not do what she wants them to. She bullies them. That is not motivation.
The teachers in the E.S.D. are very frightened by merit pay. It will eventually happen and they know it.
Quite of few teachers in the E.S.D. would never make it in a larger school district, example.. .like the Madison School District. In the Madison School District teachers are held accountable for their words and actions . Teachers in the Madison School District have to show results and excuses are not tolerated. Kim Katezenmeyer would never last in a district where teachers are held accountable. I think that is why she and others stay in the E.S.D. as they know they would be fired in any larger district. The Madison School district, high schools in particular rank high in state standards academically and well the Evansville School district?? You can not even find them on the map to academic success.
