I want what she's having!

Would anyone else love to be a fly on the wall during a job interview of Kay Royster? What could she possibly be saying or doing that would possess school board personnel to take complete leave of their senses, ignore all of her past work history and hire her anyway? She should seriously consider a new career as a job candidate trainer and consultant. I would be her first client. How do I get me some of that?

Ya know, you can kind of understand how Peoria might have messed up. One could argue that perhaps the Michigan School District was unfair to her and just plain wrong to buy out her contract early. I'm sure she spun a doozie of a "woe is me" story.

But there is NO excuse for the Jennings School District which ignored not ony the situation in Michigan, but then also ignored an identical set of circumstances in Peoria. Wouldn't you just love to know how Royster explained THAT one? This woman is a whizz! Well they fell for it, hired her anyway, and got exactly what they deserved.

It's just such a shame for all the kids - the kids in Michigan, the kids in Peoria and the kids in Missouri. After all, money isn't exactly falling from trees these days as far as our schools are concerned. Money that should be spent on the educational needs of our children is now going to feather the nest of this con-artist and to silence potential frivoulous discrimination lawsuits. Watch for it - its her MO. I truly hope that all affected school districts refuse to pay her another red cent.

Sleep tight, Ms. Royster. Don't worry about the kids. I'm sure you don't anyway.

Diane,
You know, I was thinking the same thing; how does she keep getting jobs? It's crazy.
Is her ego so big that she doesn't even realize she's awful at her job? Or does she really think it's everyone else and not her? (You know those kinds of people, everyone is against them, but they are blameless.)

What does this woman do the rest of the year when she isn't working? Take off to Mexico with all that money? Does she continue to bring the same administration with her wherever she goes? They all go on vacation? Great Headline, Diane!!
