Stolen wss on the Czech website - part 2
 
Hi, dear colleagues.

I have just contacted the principals of 2 schools, whose teachers stole and publicated Vanda ´s, Evelina ´s and others wss on the Czech website. I have already got an answer from one of them who promised to investigate this situation. I just thought it might help if you also contact the principals, So they can see this is really serious.

1.  Mrs. Lucie Jandova (principal)  e-mail: [email protected]
The name of the teacher who stole the materials is Lenka Plihalova. And also the links:

2.  Mrs. Miluse Sebelova  (principal)  e-mail:   [email protected]
The name of the teacher who stole the materials is Alena Sedlakova. And also the links:

Well done, Michaela...
Thanks again for the time you ´ve taken to go and do that. Not only the members affected, but all this community is, for sure, thankful.

The only thing I would say doesn ´t make it so bad is that Alena gave Vanda credit, as Vanda is quoted as the author. I know it ´s still wrong, but not as bad as Lenka, who claims to be the author herself...
Thanks for reporting it, Michaela, and making us aware that this going on... it ´s very sad...

I still wonder why some teachers are so upset about the fact that worksheets have been stolen. Stealing is wrong of course but thats the way it goes on the internet and for sooooo long already.
Vanda has a wonderfull blog and I ´ve download some really useful sheets over there. But, if you start a blog like that than it ´s only a matter of time and you will see the sheets all over the place.
I think the only way to stop others from ´ ´stealing ´ ´ your woksheets is to a: start a secret hub or forum b:send them by email.

There is a competition at www.sborovna.cz. The teacher who publish the most materials will win a notebook, camera, books... and maybe it can be the reason why people do it.

Come on, Errie.
These so called teachers are using stolen wss to win a competition and what is worse, they are representing their schools in the competition. Do you want to tell me we should let them?
Are you a teacher? If so, how would you like if someone won a notebook, camera with your wss? And for your information: one of the teachers is on the top right now!!!

@frenchfrog: No problem. Your thanks belongs tu Lucak, who found out about these cheaters.

Come on MJ Misa, take it easy.....
I didn ´t know they used it for a competition and drag their schools into it. That ´s indeed a dirty thing to do. I ´ve never told you NOT to do something about it, did I? If you and others feel so then you should keep on sending email to the school with all the hows and what ´s and try to end this.
I even reported two ´ ´stolen ´ ´ wss from myself on this website because it was easy to do. If it ´s beyond my reach then I let it go because there are much more important things in the world than being upset because someone has stolen a wss.
 
And yes, I ´m a teacher otherwise I wouldn ´t be on a forum like this right?. What kinda question is that anyway??. Don ´t you think that ´s a very rude question yourself? Who do you think you are? And no, I don ´t care if someone wins something with my worksheets let him or her be happy with it. I make worksheets in the hope that it ´s useful for some of you and that ´s about it.

@There are some people here who are not teachers, right?Wink
And yes, my question was rude because I considered your answer to this thread being rude and disgraceful to those, whose wss were misused.
Have a nice day, for me it ´s this the end of discussion.
