When we added DS at age 16 it only increased our insurance about $500 a year. I was shocked at how little it cost. About a year later we sold the car he was driving (a 2002 Saturn) and put him into...

My parents live about 3/4 of a mile away. Actually less, but their driveway is LONG.

We did the breakout boxes. I hated it.

We had two super competitive teachers in my group. The rest of us really couldn't join in that much. So we sat back and let them go at it. At first a couple...

No, I prefer to not be touched. I've always been like that. I don't even hug my parents.

Job postings

If it's an opening within the school and someone just wants to transfer grades - no posting. If there's no one in our building who wants to transfer, it's posted externally. There are never internal...

I'm one of those people who need changes in what I'm doing every 5 years or so. Since I started teaching almost 30 years ago, I've made some big career changes. Each time I'm filled with new energy...

Bagpipes

My grandmother immigrated here as a child with her family from Scotland. I've heard lots of bagpipes at family funerals. That's always the saddest part of the funeral for me.

Phone Calls

I get it. I have two assistants, and can never expect privacy in my room. There's a room that's rarely used in our building, and a conference room that I've gone to and used the privacy there. Stinks...

We're big Marvel fans in our house, so we went to see it opening weekend. Loved it, and loved getting the backstory. It's not my favorite Marvel movie (can't beat GOTGs), but worth seeing at the...

Fridge

Your post could have been mine... except mine died December 23. The new one wasn't delivered until January 6.

We own about 10 acres, and can really only see one other home from our yard. I don't think I could stand neighbors close to me.

We mow about 3 acres, and do paths through the rest of the property....

I try to be friendly to others, but I could go all day working in my room and not step out to talk to anyone else. I use every...

You need to report. Like Greyhound Girl said, you're a mandated reporter. Call and let the authorities investigate. Don't sit and wonder if it happened - let someone else figure that out.

Lunch

We can leave for lunch, we have to sign out. But there's nothing around - we're very rural. There's a gas station that has some food. I never go there.

A few of the staff members live nearby and...
