Clip to ScrapBook #20

I teach 6th grade in a private school, and last year, I had my middle daughter for half of the day because we were departmentalized. She was in my partner's homeroom, so she was with him for more of the day than with me. It worked okay. I tried to treat her like any other student during class, but occasionally, I had to play the "mom" card because she would respond to me "daughter to mom" instead of "student to teacher," and I would have to point out that she wouldn't answer another teacher that way. (We always had these conversations privately.) It was tough for both of us, but we survived, and her grades were good. (It happens I was teaching all of her least-favorite subjects.). That said, when I have had the option, I have always asked for my kids to be in the other teacher's section of the grade level.
