My District

Several older teachers in my district are taking a year's leave of absence.

If you go on Medicare, you will still need Part B (or Part C) and Part D insurance to cover what Part A does not cover. You might check with your husband's work insurance to find out if they will...

Dental Appointment

I had a dentist appointment today. All the things you listed in your post were in effect at my dentist's office too.

All these protocols were recommended by the CDC.

My Response

I am just enough of a bitch that I would respond to the second survey to remind the student of all the ways you helped him/her this year.

What the child wrote you was disrespectful and this child...

Our Duty

We have to take a test in order to get a driver's license, but not to be a parent. I don't think parenting comes naturally. Much of it is emulating the way our parents parented.

Just a Thought...

When school begins in the fall, the students who have not done the work will spend the first several days of school doing it.

They will not move to the next grade until it is completed.
