Neither a borrower nor a lender be

I personally don't mind if people ask for a loan of something as long as they know that I CAN say "no".

I also remember your original post and thought to myself how weird it was that admin was suggesting you have this middle school parent critique your class.

3 x's or 45 x's

I beg to differ! We ARE talking about 1st graders so I think 3 or 5 x's should be an adequate number to write.

Let punishment fit the ?

I don't believe that this is necessarily bullying and nor do I believe it is "DUMB".

However, I do believe it is an "EXCESSIVE" punishment for a 1st grader. I would agree with maybe writing name...

cover your drink

I would suggest that if you have something to drink in class that it always has a cover.

I never leave an open container around students.

Not sure why you feel like this. It sounds like you have some good references and maybe the only problem is that you are applying in competive areas.

Just think of ALL the fashion statements we have all made throughout our lifetime. Depending on when you were born...just think of it.

Aid responsiblities

I don't agree with this. I didn't get a feel of arrogance in the original post. I have been both an aide and a teacher at various times in my career. I feel that an aide is to be just that "an...
