Ellie Rubenstein is a 4th grade teacher in Chicago’s Highland Park who’s video is going viral after she posted her resignation video on YouTube for her administrators and community. Ellie was being forcefully transferred to another school in what she says was an attempt to silence her sort of disruption at the school. This was the last straw for an outspoken woman who’s not afraid to speak her mind, even if that meant exposing the administration mal-behavior and resigning to ‘teach on her own terms’.
Hundreds of teachers, parents and other community members have flooded the conversation with a general support of the elementary school teacher and the message she left for her administrators. Lets see what’s in store for good old standardized testing and procedures. *
