We will always have pple like this....

I worked as a counselor for a few yrs. We were allowed to access case management if kids were in need of food, clothing, or a few extra items. 1 day a mom came in all upset. She told me they were...

1 of yours is like mine...

1. Parents would expect their kids to be responsible for their stuff as opposed to having someone else check them daily. ( Not even talking K-1)
2. Lying students got a consequence that taught them...

You have so many entitled parents

that I don't see how you can stop yourself from whapping them upside the head.
1 thing I never will give up again for a parent meeting is my lunch time. I wouldn't do it if I were you.
I have been...

Oh, OK I see the $

difference. I just thought maybe you'd get insurance and your foot in the door for a FT teaching job. We lack teacher positions, but need good assistants.
Once assistants are hired in the system,...

Same opinion as Haley

"Like anything else, it depends on how it's implemented, IMO. "

Our school implemented (or acted like it) PBIS w/ no consequences.
Most of us were never even really trained in anything, but the...

At 1st I was thinking, it

might be mellower once the regular teacher is in the room. That could make the job a lot easier for you! Congrats on being the chosen 1 w/out even interviewing! ;)
Then after reading MissESL's post,...

I fully understand working in a place

where you have to be careful about gossip. It can be hard. Times have changed it seems with professional boundaries over the yrs. When I 1st started teaching, parents would never consider calling you...

I'd def give her the benefit of the

doubt. There are so many possibilities. ( spam folder, teacher absence, meetings, etc.)
IDK if her school is like this or not, but at 1 time, we had to count big final exams ( provided by the...

I am very sorry to hear about your mom's strokes. It has hard when parents get older. It is awesome that they have such good memories though to cherish.
Wow! I bet your dad at 18 was scared of...

I just remember we read parts of it together. We both laughed hysterically, but I think he wished things were like that still. He just knew better than to say it. :)<!--shootingstars-->

Still laughing

Subman- BEG your cousin to get ahold of this case!
Private Eyes I was thinking the exact same thing as you! Grab a Kleenex 1st, so you don't leave any prints for these crazies to find! :)...

Things were def different...

Yeah, life has really changed. My dad grew up on a farm too. Times were tough in those days. Kids nowadays complain about stuff that would have sounded insane back then. It is awesome your mom and...

Oh, I loved the ending!

I have heard about some districts on forums that teachers are no longer able to say, "Good Job!" even because it is evaluative or judgmental. The same with marking answers wrong. I am not sure what...

I relate 100%

I'm leaving education at the end of the yr for good. It is getting progressively worse here. Surly describes it well.
I am so surprised there truly will probably be 100 people waiting for and...

thought of Judge Judy getting ahold of this mom and kid. I'd watch it daily and probably it'd never lose the humor!

Your post

really poes me about the abuse of power. I'd start emailing that P, "As we discussed 4 x, ___ children are not being given their sped minutes during my class. "
Then I'd copy it w/ her no response...

I have only been asked that twice

and I have taught almost 30 yrs. I saw it happen to a teacher who retired a few yrs ago a lot because she'd put 30 yrs in that same school. It used to annoy the crap out of her.
She had over a...

It is interesting how different pple think.

Teeny- If we were not friends, I'd probably never ask you. I guess when I say it, it is kind of an acknowledgement of we are back together too, but I wouldn't say it if I truly did not care.

I really like the design of your room.

It is unique. I have never seen a room shaped like that w/ the cool bricks in the background! I hope you enjoy it to the fullest! <!--partyhat4-->

Oh, I get it now....

Yeah, if someone grilled me, I wouldn't like it either. I keep it to: Did you have a good break? If yeah, " Cool!" If not, I stop and listen. Sometimes we have had some really sad things happen to...

I am a guilty "asker"

I seriously do care if I ask you. If I didn't care, I wouldn't ask. ( I only ask people that I have some form of comradery w/. ) I never realized so many people could be bothered by that question....

Some P's are odd ducks...

I have no clue why she would feel the need to point out to you that your kids may not do as well as another teacher's kids. It was thoughtless or mean. I'd seriously ask her if she pulls something...
