I gotta stop coming on here when I'm cranky

I lurk a lot more than I post, but I usually post when I'm in a bad mood and need to vent to some "teacher folk".

I was wondering if I did something wrong. It did cross my mind that she planned on calling out that day and I threw a wrench in her plan. I guess I'll see what happens this morning. I feel a...

How much time do you have for Language Arts?
