Wehling1 Zachary Wehling 12JAN2019 ENC1102 Zero Tolerance for Zeros A teacher at Port St. Lucie K-8 school was fired for violating the school’s policy of not giving the students a zero for assignments even if they do not turn them in. This happened on September 14 th , 2018. The teacher, Diane Tirado, did not agree with the policy and believed credit should be given where credit is due. That means if there is no work turned in then there is no credit due. Tirado said that when she asked the other teachers about this and what they do when a student doesn’t turn something in they told her that they give them 50%. Tirado was not going to stand for this and proceeded to give zeros for work not turned in. Subsequently she got a letter from the principal stating the termination of her teaching career at Port St. Lucie’s. She was upset at the response and on her last day wrote “Bye Kids, Mrs. Tirado loves you and wishes you the best in life! I have been fired for refusing to give you a 50% for not handing anything in.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
