I've been hearing for the past 5 years that I 'll be staying in the same grade level because it's "best for the kids". Never mind the fact that I hate going to school and had a huge mental health...

This day, indeed.

Parent B kind of wins the day with sheer gall. And on so many levels. Fake emergency, pissy about the blocked number, expecting you to make guarantees on another teacher's policies...

Parent A? I...

Let me sing you the song of my people.
I dislike 3rd grade more than brussels sprouts.
And that's saying something.

The paliiative care/hospice coordinator called to talk about my dad just as the kids were coming back in ftom recess for math and I had to answer. I put them all on computers with headphones doing...

you all are such a safety net. I think the scariest thing right now is visioning this as a viable way of dealing with chaos. The only thing keeping me on the ledge right now is is the sheer...

Good luck on finding more traditional schools with a policy of holding students accountable these days. It's like Diogenes looking for an honest man. Or looking for a flattering bathing suit. Few and...

yeah. One of my grade level partners is constantly crowing about how well the kids in her room are getting the material, and their great scores, and how well the new curriculum works.

Um, you...

Have mercy.

Unless I KNOW there is an extenuating circumstance causing the behavior, I tell those kids to drop the drama bomb where it won't disrupt the whole class, or I will move them to another room till they...

Gee, Angelo...

I tried to come up with some professional, thoughtful phrases for you to tell these parents, but for some reason, they kept ending up with "and the horse you rode in on...."

I have no clue why...
