Frustrated N.J. Transgender Teacher to Retire
FOXNews.com ^ | Wednesday, July 22, 2009 | Associated Press

LITTLE EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP, N.J. — When word got out that Mr. McBeth, a popular substitute teacher at two southern New Jersey school districts was about to come back to class as Miss McBeth, it caused an uproar.

The former William McBeth had undergone sex reassignment surgery and was now Lily McBeth. The schools' 2006 decisions to keep her on as a substitute were hailed around the nation as a model of tolerance and acceptance of transgender Americans.

But the storybook ending never happened: She got only a handful of assignments since then and is resigning in frustration.

MISS MACBETH (Elvis Costello)

All the children testified that miss macbeth
Wore a fishbone slide in her cobweb tresses
Her eyes were black like first foot coal, clutched as white as chalk-dust
Her fingers sweated india-ink and poison-pen letters
There is a hungry hanging tree, just below your bedroom window
You can hear her take a broom to beat out a tattoo on the ceiling
Her bloodless face ran red inside but was she
Really evil, was she only pantomime

Now the chalk on the wall says that somebody
Saves, that somebodys face has just been washed off the pavement
Into a puzzle where petrol will be poisoned by rain
Miss macbeth saw her reflection
As confetti bled its colours down the drain

Chorus:

And everyday she lives out another love song
Its a tearful lament of somebody done wrong
Well how can you miss what youve never possessed?
Miss macbeth

"....McBeth says she misses interacting with students in the classroom.

"I tried to be an example of something you might want to be when you grow up: a kind, caring person," she said...."

That is the problem in a nutshell!

From the article:

"McBeth, 75, sent a letter Wednesday to the Eagleswood Board of Education saying she would not return as a substitute this fall, and plans to give similar notice soon to the Pinelands district."

Hmmm...if this is right...it might have something to add to the mix here.

Before her transition from male to female in 2005, McBeth said she averaged between 15 to 18 assignments a year as a substitute teacher for elementary students in the Eagleswood school district, and an additional 16 to 20 a year in the Pinelands Regional School District, teaching high school students.

The article is somewhat dishonest. He's not a teacher, he's a substitute teacher, and IMO, 75 is well past the age where someone could adequately handle a classroomful of kids.

Besides, it's not like he got a lot of days anyways, and I know subs who are pulled of the list for other reasons or no reason at all.

Subs do not have job security and if the teachers don't like the job the sub is doing, they'll ask to not have them.

This guy is likely just trying to make a martyr of himself.

And really, a sex change mutilation at 75? Come on now.

Everybody has to live in the real world, including transsexuals. All substitute teachers have plenty of trouble maintaining order in a classroom and getting the kids to focus on doing any work. No way is ANY work going to get done in any class, on a day when a transsexual substitute teacher shows up. This is reality. Kids will be kids. He/She should have thought this through before making the switch. If he/she felt the switch was really essential, then getting a new career plan lined up needed to be part of the switching process.

IMO McBeth is a drama queen. I know I wouldn’t want McBeth teaching my daughter & at 75 yrs old I think it is time to retire. I am so happy I home school.

I wonder how many other over-70 substitute teachers in these districts are getting more than a handful of assignments each year. I’d guess few if any.

In many states, the principal selects the substitutes they want. I doubt many wanted the grief they would endure if this person was hired.

Dang straight. I can't recall any teacher that old being present in my entire 12 years of public school. Heck, my brother-in-law's girlfriend just retired and I think she's just over 50.

Well past the age where a sex-change would mean much, too.

At the risk of coining a term, “transgender cougar.”

"It seems like a good teacher is being judged for something other than her talent, and we should all be able to agree that's not fair," said Boylan, who transitioned in 2000. "My heart goes out to Lily and all people who have to fight prejudice as a result of who they are." -- Jennifer Boylan [a former john and English professor]

Prejudice? Uh, yeah. So? Anyone who would mutilate himself is obviously insane and not fit to work with the developing minds of our children. An example follows.

While some parents objected at public meetings to McBeth continuing to teach after becoming a woman, many students were supportive.

"I can see where some people might have concerns, but people just need to get over it," one Pinelands high school student said in 2006.

So, the older and more mature parents know a stinkaroo when they smell one, but the minds of "many students" have already been compromised.

"I could sue them over the violation of my medical privacy rights, but what would that accomplish?"

Your medical privacy rights? You violated those when you announced your choppadicoffamy to the entire world. What? It didn't involve doctors and surgery?

Take your gay rights agenda and [I'm too polite to say what to do with it, but use your imagination to the very limit of its scope].
