Dear Fellow Teachers:
Last winter I spent hours getting my first web site up and
working. Web site design was all new to me, but I could no

I began to look very closely at patterns at the school I

Not sure how it's going to h...See More

good idea My guess is that Mr Michael Hussey (ratemyteacher's owner) has a personal problem with teachers and with education. He found a way to rally others of the same kind to take revenge and damage teachers careers.
