    "Teachers? We don't need no stinkin teachers at New Village Academy!"

    "Badges, we don't need no steenking badges!" - The late, great Alfonso Bedoya (props to anonCSPSG for pointing this out), Alfonso you are missed.

    Fans the world over know near instinctively where these words come from ("Blazing Saddles"), and if you didn't know the answer it's time for a Mel Brook's film festival in your home! This being said, who would have thought that one of Hollywood's richest celebrities would pay a million dollars to fund a school where only one of the teachers is registered in the state of California as having a licensed credential to teach their precious Celebritologist kidlets!

    What follows is a list of employees from the "New Village Academy" website which may have recently been "purged" from all indicators. A recent search of the licensure site for California public school teachers turned up some interesting information.

    The following is the result from searching on:

    https://teachercred.ctc.ca.gov/teach...licSearchProxy

    These are the limitations of the search:
    Public school, not charter, list of certified teachers
    Credentials issued before 1989 may not be on the list.


    Tara Avadis- Not listed, no teaching credential found

    Jana Batabunde-Bey – Not listed, no teaching credential found

    Andrea Beckham –Not listed, no teaching credential found

    Sigrid Burket – Not listed, no teaching credential found

    Mariappan Jawaharlal –Not listed, no teaching credential found

    Tasia Jones – Not listed, no teaching credential found

    Carol Anne McGuire –Not listed, no teaching credential found

    Natalie Nourian – Not listed, no teaching credential found

    James Oliver FOUND: James Ronald Oliver, Clear Single Subject Teaching Credential (exp: 03/01/2011, iss: 03/01/2006).
    “This credential authorizes the holder to provide the following services to limited-English-proficient pupils: (1) instruction for English language development in grades twelve and below, including preschool, and in classes organized primarily for adults; and (2) specially designed content instruction delivered in English in single-subject-matter (departmentalized) courses as authorized on this document. This crosscultural, language and academic development authorization also covers classes authorized by other valid, non-emergency credentials held, as specified in Education Code Section 44253.3.”

    Single Subject licensed to teach: Crosscultural, Language, & Academic Development Emphasis, Physical Education (Examination)

    Jacqueline Olivier –Not listed, no teaching credential found

    Marcia Perkins – Not listed, no teaching credential found

    Leonard Purnell – Not listed, no teaching credential found

    Sisu Raiken – Not listed, no teaching credential found

    Carolyn Roberts – FOUR LISTINGS FOUND under this name, no way to tell if one is her.

    Ricky Starr -Employee Head chef

    Tracy Wagner –No listing, no teaching credential found

    Keisha Washington – No listing, no teaching credential found

    These are listings for teachers who registered to work in public schools in the past and present, and what their current license credentials are. This list does not include unregistered teachers which may teach at charter schools, and I’ve no idea how typical it is to hire people completely without registered credentials or where to check them.

    Given that only one person on that whole list has a teaching certificate registered in California, perhaps this too is newsworthy?

    I'm diggin' for all I'm worth, can I has helps pl0x?

    Alfonso Bedoya on line one for you, MSW.

    "Treasure of the Sierra Madre" did the "steenking badges" line first.

    (Sorry, nothing concrete to contribute to the thread subject, just wanted to pimp a damn good movie. :grin: )

    Re: "Teachers? We don't need no stinkin teachers at New Village Academy!"

    Typical. Just like Delphi schools; a buttload of uncredentialed people "teaching" LRH study-tech nonsense... in a school that isn't accredited by any reputable agency like the Western Association of Schools and Colleges.
  4. Re: "Teachers? We don't need no stinkin teachers at New Village Academy!"

    Thanks for the link to that website! I was able to learn that I AM a credentialed teacher, and as one, I can say that Will Smith's school is no such thing.

    Re: "Teachers? We don't need no stinkin teachers at New Village Academy!"

    Well, at least somebody in California has a license to teach. If the New Village Academy is any indicator, it's a rare thing to find somebody with a teaching license in California!

    Re: "Teachers? We don't need no stinkin teachers at New Village Academy!"

    I'm still trying, not easy, to find out more information about these people online. If they've got credentials it would be inappropriate for me to say that they did not, so before I can "go there" I need to do some serious due-dilligence that's taking a very long time.

    Moar people helping to figure out who these "teachers" are and what their training is would be of great assistance.

    Maybe this is the math and robotic teacher, but would a college professor teach at a private school?

    Money?

    A very long time ago I was one of the guinea pigs in the 60's and 70's "gifted and talented" education movement in public schools, and our teachers were PhDs as well. If it is him however, it goes to the issue of how are they going to make payroll on only 40 students since hiring PhD's can get pretty pricey.

    If it is him, and assuming the Administrator's credentials check out as legit, that'd make two people earning $65-100K a year presumably.

    Can people make a priority of getting actual SOURCE materials for 13Heathens please please please?

    edit: The thought occurs... is aplustudents.com a WISE company?

    Re: "Teachers? We don't need no stinkin teachers at New Village Academy!"

    Me too, I have a substitute credential for high school English. There definitely are teachers in Cali with Ph.D.s and then admin types get Ed.D.s. Way easier and less intellectually rigorous than academic subject areas, IMO; and that goes for Masters in Ed. too. Ph.D.s don't get that much more $$ on the scale. Maybe $3000. $1500 more for a masters in Cali.

    Carol Anne McGuire – credential not found on State site
    but a Carol Anne McGuire is mentioned in the following Orange
    County Register article.

    Re: "Teachers? We don't need no stinkin teachers at New Village Academy!"

    Haven't we got a WISE / Disney connection already or am I mistaking that thread's content? It doesn't say she's got a teaching credential, only that she "...a teacher of blind and visually impaired pupils at Imperial Elementary School in Anaheim Hills."

    Now here's a bit of tinfoil hat that may just be coincidence, but the thought occurs to me, "Just how do these people get hired or referred to this school to apply for jobs?"

    Imperial Elementary School - Meet our Staff

    That's the staff for the Imperial School. Please note the name "Steve Mueller," appearing as teaching 3rd and 4th grade.

    Now, take a look here:

    Steve Mueller - Scientology Service Completions | Truth About Scientology Statistics Project

    This could be a complete and total coincidence, but SOMEONE named Steven Mueller has completed:

    STUDENT RESCUE INTENSIVE Source 151 15 December 2003
    STUDENT HAT COURSE Source 175 1 February 2006

    all the way through

    NEW OT VI HUBBARD SOLO NOTS AUDITING COURSE Source 192 1 June 2007

    As I say, this could very well be simply two people sharing the same name, but the tinfoil hat sort of thought occurs that perhaps this was the recruitment vehicle for Ms. McGuire if that Disney Award linking her to Imperial is accurate and actually her. If it's not just the "simple" explanation that "Steven (Steve) T. Mueller" isn't the "Steve Mueller" at Imperial, then it could be a case of recruitment.

    Re: "Teachers? We don't need no stinkin teachers at New Village Academy!"

    That little, sheesh! That I didn't expect. It's certainly untrue in the University environment. PhD's get tenure, publish or perish, and a boatload more money than adjuncts.

    source: Dr. Jacqueline Yarbrough


    According to a source the new Administrator of "New Village Academy" is Jacqueline Olivier, and she got a PhD from Pepperdine. Above, thanks to a source from another thread who had an idea about how to back into verifying a teaching credential, we have a card catalogue listing for a dissertation authored by a Jacqueline Olivier Yarbrough with a Ed.D., which is a doctorate in education.

    Same person? Might be...

    I wonder what the name of the "after-school tutoring business" she owned was?

    Ah ok, so the space in her name was the issue. Your link required cookies, so I posted the information from the site.

    Yeah, I'm seeing a lot of connection to "Apple" in this crop. Olivier got an award from Apple as well.

    Re: "Teachers? We don't need no stinkin teachers at New Village Academy!"

    Apple Computers. They give tech grants to teachers.

    My guess: different Carol Anne. She's not leaving her cool, FAT retirement benefits and perks in Anaheim to go off to the San Fernando Valley. Blind and visually impaired is a special ed credential.

    PS

    She and a *Steve Mueller* are still listed on the Imperial Elementary School - Meet our Staff school website. No way is a legitimate honored techer leaving a tenured public school job to go to the valley to work for two people who did not graduate high school---my guess.
    These are two names which are not that uncommon.
