This is the start of a new series. And our first “winner” is liz phipps soeiro, a school librarian in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
Here, from Teri Christoph’s article at redstate.com, is just some of why she wins this (dis)honor. But use the link and read it all, there is a great deal more:
Earlier in September, First Lady Melania Trump donated Dr. Suess books to several public schools in celebration of National Read a Book Day. One public school in each state was chosen to receive the gift of ten books, including “The Cat in the Hat,” “One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish,” “Green Eggs and Ham,” and “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!”.
In Massachusetts, the school chosen to receive the gift of books was Cambridgeport Elementary, located in Cambridge.
Unfortunately for Cambridgeport, they have an ungrateful librarian by the name of Liz Phipps Soeiro, who took it upon herself to reject the First Lady’s gift, then made things worse by writing a blog post in which she presumes to educate Mrs. Trump on public schools, with the obligatory leftist screed on Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, whilst also patting herself on the back for being so well educated:
My students have access to a school library with over nine thousand volumes and a librarian with a graduate degree in library science. Multiple studies show that schools with professionally staffed libraries improve student performance.
Clearly, graduate degrees such as the one Liz Phipps Soeiro received do not confer class and graciousness. Surely, the teachers and administrators at Cambridgeport Elementary will be surprised to learn that the achievements of their school are the result of one person: Liz Phipps Soeiro. Without her graduate degree, that school would be a big failure.
And lucky them that they don’t have a need for the books gifted to them by the First Lady. Librarian extraordinaire Liz Phipps Soeiro could’ve done the decent thing and quietly donated them to a needy school in her area. Imagine the lesson she could have taught the students at her school by showing compassion and kindness. But, no, leftists like Phipps Soeiro always choose instead to double down on their natural state of ingratitude and combine it with their sneering, short-sighted view of the world.
My congratulations to writer Teri Cristoph for her compassion. She is far too kind.
liz phipps soeiro is a jerk. An arrogant, self-impressed jerk who thinks making a snide, insulting political point is more important than accepting books for the children she is supposed to care about.
How sad that someone like this is entrusted with molding young minds.
I’d say shame on her, but since she wrote the ungraciously, nasty, stupid, arrogant blog post, she’s probably proud of it.
