Poor Olivia. Two weeks ago at David Pakter's hearing she testified that a guidance counselor told her that it "seems as if Mr Pakter" was selling watches to students. Notice the key word in the quote, "seems." No according to Websters, seems is defined as; 1 : to appear to the observation or understanding 2 : to give the impression of being
So there we have it. But for some reason in an email to her principal Poor Olivia said, "the guidance counselor said that Mr Pakter is selling watches to students. Key word in that sentence is, "is." According to Websters is is defined as; —used as the auxiliary of the present participle in progressive tenses expressing continuous action (he is reading)(I have been sleeping) or better yet, (he is selling watches to students).
Now after her direct testimony Poor Olivia stood pretty fast by this statement. But in her cross, Poor Olivia completely contradicted herself and folded like a wet noodle. Not only that the very nest day the guidance counselor testified that he never said anything to Poor Olivia.
But there is a major question here. If Poor Olivia was notified of such doings, could she not have saved time and the DOE's money by simply asking Mr Pakter for the truth? In her capacity as an assistant principal she was well within her duties to do so. Why would she need to go right to the principal and involve an investigation?
The reason is because Poor Olivia knows she has no skills. No skills two be an administrator. Like Numb Nuts, she needs to show that feels she needs to suck up to the principal to show she belongs. Why else would a person after only five years in education go right into administration? She is a climber, and damn whomever gets in her way.
There used to be a time when administrators were veteran teachers, teachers that paid their dues over fifteen years or more. Now little these little peon's like Poor Olivia come around and they want to climb up that ladder. But something is missing. The skills to stay atop that ladder. The lack of confidence in their own skills. This is Poor Olivia.
But Poor Olivia did not look up Websters definition of perjury; the voluntary violation of an oath or vow either by swearing to what is untrue or by omission to do what has been promised under oath : false swearing
One would wonder if Poor Olivia ever violated any DOE rules or Chancellor's Regulations. Hmmmmmmmmmmmm.
