That's exactly what my husband and I said - he didn't learn ANYTHING from the book - just got it done. I don't know WHAT they do during the day. She is very hard to communicate with. I've called -...

The New England packet was 6 states. I'm so glad you agree about the book and packet! How do you think I should handle this? Talk to the teacher (again) or go higher up?

Is this NORMAL?!

Hi there,

I've helped a lot of people get their jobs by writing their cover letters and resumes for them. One thing I suggest is to use bullets. The previous poster is correct...you don't want to rehash your...

yeah

I have been on meds for hypothyroidism for 13 years. I tried going off it once and it didn't work. Believe me you'll feel a lot better once the meds start working. Good luck!

But, I think you were pretty rude. OK, so snowglobes aren't your thing...it did play love me tender, which is probably what attracted him to the gift. I just can't STAND it when people get pissy...

As a former teacher and a mom...I'm against telling parents what to pack for a snack for their child. As teachers we're always saying that we're tired of the parents expecting US to parent their...

no emotion
