I have both. What can ya do?
Let one of them expire?

Sorry- you are teaching the wrong subjects. I am licensed as an OSHA and MSHA outreach instructor. For the OSHA 30 hr class (I take 5 days to cover the material) for a class of 30, I charge $5,000.

And while the majority of my folks DO pass the courses- with adults, THEY are the ones that worry about passing!

And I do not have to put up with whiny parents!

The seventh grade teacher tasked with educating me and my buddies actually retired after our class. I really don't remember seeing her much after the school picnic when we brought all that non-alcoholic beer.

I taught night classes at a community college; I like teaching the older/nontraditional students. The older ones are more interested in learning and ask better questions.

I just prefer problems that can be solved with a hammer, apparently people aren't on that list....

MOST people, and especially when others are watching.

Why don't you submit an application to a different district during contract time?

In an active shooter scenario, if you had the option to "bail" would you do that, or would you "close to engage" the shooter.

That's one of those things that you won't really know unless it happens.

It depends on stuff like who are his victims (children, adults, nuns, ect), if you have an open shot, the likely hood of you surviving/dying, whether the police are already on the scene or not, ect.

I'm sure in a scenario where the shooter is in the open with his back to you, and you are behind a concrete wall or some barrier that you can shoot over, there's no one that wouldn't take the shot. Of course, that's a nearly perfect situation for you, but how likely is it going to happen like that?

In a Colorado theater situation, he walks past me, and I am sure he wants to increase the body count, hell yes, I would engage.

I am in a convenience store, and bad guy wants to empty the cash register, hell no. I am gonna hide behind the junk food and eat all I can. That's the last thing anyone will worry about then.

Does he disrespect the ftf moderators? You know the answer here.

Depends on the situation.
