Verbal Assault

It appears that there is a counselor is in charge of all our ESL kids, and this is a new project for her because she sent an introductory e-mail out to all of us teachers who have them. That includes me. I worry about these kids. Sadly, it is this counselor who makes me worry. She signed off on the e-mail with, Let’s help our verbally challenged students.

They’re not verbally challenged! They speak just fine. They just don’t speak a second language—like me and probably like you.

This lady better watch out or she’ll find me to be refraining from punching a counselor in the throat challenged. At least she didn’t try to make the e-mail bilingual. Otherwise I most likely would have had deleted something that had the phrase verbally-o challenged-o in it.
