argument

Clip to ScrapBook #19

I quit arguing a long time ago. It's not worth it. People believe what they want and honestly they just don't have a clue. When people say that, I just say something like, "Yeah, I do enjoy staying home to work on lessons in my pajamas". They're usually pretty surprised we work over the summer. They think we open a book and give page numbers for kids to read while we sit at our desk grading papers. They don't know it takes planning, interventions, TST meetings, calling parents, disciplining, etc…

Usually when I give that type of response, their curiosity gets the best of them and they're no longer trying to make a point - and I no longer need to make mine.
