this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
OT first timer
My sister, a recent M grad, is currently working in American Samoa for WorldTeach, which is similar to Teach for America except that it takes place all over the world. Somewhat surpisingly, Samoa puts a lot of guys in the NFL for such a small country, and Samoans are pretty fond of football. One of the classes that my sister is teaching is grades 3 and 4 combined, and they were stunned when they found out their teacher went to the same school as Tom Brady. Well, the class was assigned to create a song about Manu'a (their Island) and Fitiuta (their village). Here's what they came up with (lyrics below):
Hail! to Manu'a People
Hail! to Fitiuta Students
Hail! Hail! Our school will never rest.
Hail !to Manu'a People
Hail to Fitiuta Students
Hail! Hail! Level 3 and 4 is the best.
