Looking for teachers for the teacher spotlight

Starting in September, OnMilwaukee.com will run a six-week series of articles called the teacher spotlight. The articles will run in the Kids & Family channel on the site.

Every Monday, OnMilwaukee.com will showcase an outstanding Milwaukee Public Schools' teacher. Hence, if you would like to nominate one, please e-mail me at molly@staff.onmilwaukee.com with his or her name, the school where they teach and contact information.

Happy back to school, Milwaukee.

Whatever. You do a great job trying to promote yourself. Sending a child to MPS and being a proactive partent is not the answer to the systemic failures of MPS. Its like buying a Prius--it makes you feel good inside but does nothing to really reduce the use of fossil fuels.

If you truely wanted to make a difference at MPS, you would advocate for getting rid of teacher seniority.

Ha ha, number one is ridiculous, number two is flat out wrong and number three, I'll agree, is partially correct. I should have placed a comma, perhaps, after "sorry." But, otherwise, the sentence is properly punctuated. Also, I'm sorry that you think "grammer" and education is elitist.

As for your argument, I didn't see one. I only saw a vague, unexplained, dismissal of the unions and their members.

Anyway, I can't speak for you, but I'm making the effort to be part of the solution by sending my child to an MPS school, attending PTA meetings, volunteering on a school committee and in a classroom and being involved in my kid's education. Maybe you are, too, and that's why you didn't have the time to post a thoughtful argument.

If all you want to do is sling unqualified hate via anonymous comments, you'll understand why I'm signing off now.

Here we go

1. Inappropriate use of parenthesis.

2. You forgot a comma after issues and before we.

3. You failed to punctuate your first sentence.

Now that we have cleared up the fact that neither of us are serious about correct usage in a blog comment, please tell me why my argument is wrong. Hey look, that was the imperative moodcan be elitist too!.

Ha ha ha. Nicely played. I knew you wouldn't -- or couldn't -- take the "oppertunity" to point out the supposed "grammer" mistakes.

If I didn't have a real argument, I'd point out mistakes in other's comments too.
