Authors of the Tard Blog
Riti Sped (aka,
The Teacher of the Tards):
Riti wrote the Tard Blog for the first 4 months it was up. She is a real person, and really
teaches mentally retarded and behavior disorder kids in a real public school.
Her real name is neither "Teacher of the Tards," nor "Riti
Sped." It is concealed for obvious reasons.
When asked what she wanted written
about her, this is what she responded:
"I guess you could call me
"Teacher of the Tards." Also, I specialize in working with "BD" kids
(behavior disorder). The school I am at has a SBD program, meaning
severe behavior disorder, the highest classification of the naughty
reetees. We even have a black box that the tards have to go into if
they are bad, and we have to hold the door shut so they don't escape.
This is probably the leading reason as to why my workday encounters
are so extreme. Nonetheless, it beats a fucking desk job."
Riti quit teaching special ed at the
end of the 2003 school year, and is now happily getting drunk every day.
Sarah is the current author of the Tard Blog. Though new, she has shown some
excellent promise and should continue to provide hours of entertainment.
Brody is little more than an anonymous minion, doing the thankless, anonymous
work necessary to keep the Tard Blog up and running.
