We might not like to talk about our money, but we must if we choose to pay attention to the things Jesus taught. Nothing gets between Jesus and His people more than their money. During this sermon series we take a look at true Investments, The Gospel and Giving, and about what a generous life can do for us and for the world.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) — Knox County man, Dan Arp has a new invention that he hopes will bring more smiles to east Tennessee.”I never could find any plans for this thing anywhere at all.”It’s an idea he got while traveling overseas with his wife, Cindy Arp.”Cindy says I can build a house with what’s in my toolbox.”Last February, Dan set out to build.”Probably one of the first things I’ve built that came off completely without a hitch.”He created a hand painted, self powered, made in America merry-go-round.”I just thought this is something really neat that they have in Granada, Spain so why can’t we have it in Knoxville, Tennessee,” adds Dan.Dan laid out the groundwork and a group of advanced art students from Halls High School pitched in.Cindy says, “I know who painted which horse and why they chose the colors that they did, and who they envisioned riding on these horses.”The students spent hours painting the horses. The Arp family says it was a community effort.”All you have to do is look at the kids to know that they have had a great time and would probably ride all day if Dan’s legs would hold out,” says Director of the Mother’s Day Out Program at Beaver Creek Cumberland Presbyterian Church, Becky Shanton.Dan doesn’t charge people to use the merry-go-round. He says if people make donations he will give them to local charities.He says, “The first kid that gets on there and smiles when it goes around, paid in full.”He found the rocking horses on Craigslist, flea markets and yard sales. Dan says he started working on merry-go-round in February and it took a couple hundred hours to complete. Follow us on Twitter @Local12 and LIKE us on Facebook for updates!

Teacher Fired For Giving Zeroes To Students Who Did Not Turn In Their Work

Teacher Fired For Giving Zeroes To Students Who Did not Turn In Their Work

Being a good teacher is not easy, especially when there are certain rules and regulations that you are forced to follow that you may not believe in.
When I was teaching at a private elementary school, I was told by the principal that I could not fail students, even if they refused to hand in assignments and participate in class.
The administration staff’s explanation was that parents are paying lots of money for their students to go to this school, and because of this, teachers are not allowed to hold them back.
But what about public schools? You would think these teachers would have much more leeway, but you could not be more wrong.
One Florida teacher had to learn this the hard way after she was fired for giving zeros to students who did not turn in their assignment.

Diane Tirado has been teaching for many years.
In August, she got a new job at West Gate K-8 School in Port St. Lucie as an eighth grade U.S. history teacher, but her teaching method raised eyebrows among administrative staff.
When several students did not turn their explorer notebook project, after giving them two weeks to complete, she gave them zeros.
The school has a “no zero” policy, and below every grading rubric, it states in bold red lettering: “NO ZEROS – LOWEST POSSIBLE GRADE IS 50%.”
“But what if they do not turn it in, and they say we will give them a 50? Oh no we do not,” Tirado said, after asking administrators about this rule.
Just a few weeks after the new school year started, Tirado was terminated.
On her last day at the school, Tirado wrote this message on the whiteboard, which was later shared on her Facebook page.
“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.”

Bue 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 handinaany thing in.
Mrs. Ticado

Because Tirado was still in her probationary period, there was no explanation in the termination letter on exactly why she was fired.
And because of this, she may not be able to sue the school or get help from the teachers’ union.
That being said, Tirado does not regret taking a stand for what she believes in.
“A grade in Mrs. Tirado’s class is earned,” she said.
“I am so upset because we have a nation of kids that are expecting to get paid and live their life just for showing up and it’s not real,” she added.
Tirado is sharing her story on Facebook, which has now gone viral, and hopes she can change this policy.
“The reason I took on this fight was because it was ridiculous. Teaching should not be this hard. Teachers teach content, children do the assignments to the best of their ability and teachers grade that work based on a grading scale that has been around a very long time. Teachers also provide numerous attempts to get the work collected so they can give a child a grade. By nature, most teachers are loving souls who want to see students succeed. We do above and beyond actual teaching to give them the support they need. Are we perfect? NO. We make mistakes like all other human beings, but I know teachers work their butts off to help children to be the best people they can be!!!”
Many people on Facebook are siding with the teacher, and believe she should not have been fired:

“Is that for real? I would be out of a job also,” wrote a teacher.
“A teacher should have the right to decide the grade a child receives.

Lynden Dorval, a former physics teacher at Ross Sheppard High School in Edmonton, Canada, was suspended in 2012 for handing out zeroes to students who failed to hand in their work.
This school also had a “no zero” policy, so his teaching method landed him in hot water.
Less than a week after his termination, Dorval was offered a new job at a private school.
“Our evaluation policy is generally left up to the teachers,” Peter Mitchell, head of Tempo School, who hired Dorval, told CBC. “I think students here would not be surprised to get a zero if they did not do their work.”
Dorval also won his case in court and was compensated for his termination, which included two years’ salary and an increase in his pension.
“I knew that what I did was right and whether it was legal or not it was the right thing to do and the support of family, friends and colleagues, and former students even, really has helped get me through this,” he told Global News.
Perhaps Tirado’s viral story will be able to land her a new job, or change the way some schools handle students who do not turn in their work.

Faith Promise Giving 2018

A Faith Promise is a financial commitment to missions based upon the conviction that God wants you to give that amount to missions, an amount not necessarily dependent upon known or anticipated resources.

Pray, “Lord, what do you want to do through me?” Then give as God provides. This is a great adventure of faith, and God will honor Himself as you make the promise.
