Demand High backfires On Vertically-Challenged DOS
ATHENS, GREECE - An ambitious DOS, recently recruited by YeahLikeWhatever Academy, has been shown the door after only three weeks in her new position.
Rose, who won a silver medal for under 8s triple jump in primary school, was hopping mad when she was fired by text.
“I am a big believer in asking more of our students. I noticed that many teachers were just going through the motions and it was very much ‘death by gap-fill’. My plan was to give a talk on the idea of Demand High on Friday morning. This would mean we could implement this mindset in the following weeks. Friday’s usually the best day as many of the staff are hungover and less argumentative. I learned that the hard way after trying to push through new policies such as a morning group hug, a motivational chant and also a team-building paperclip hunt.”
“I printed out some Demand High posters and put them up around the staffroom. This was the day before the talk as I wanted to activate their schemata. Some of the teachers apparently went to the school director claiming it was a great idea and that their needed to be a minimum height for staff.
I don’t know if they are just morons or vindictive morons who didn’t want me rocking the boat.”
After speaking to the Director, she found out that it was just a joke. “All newcomers get the same treatment. We convinced the last DOS that the staffroom was haunted and to bring chocolate biscuits every Friday morning to thank the ghost for a peaceful week. I put on 12 kilos that term!
Rose’s heart is in the right place but it seemed the joke went over her head.”
