this week was an odd one for comments from my kids
this week included:
"Mrs. Lewis, did you mark me off a point for calling Napoleon, Neapolitan?"
My response - "No, of course not, oh wait, maybe I did."
Grading 165 history tests is causing my grading curve to get a little questionable
I would always say I grade objectively
but apparently getting the ruler of France confused with an ice cream flavor
rubbed me the wrong way on that particular day
I was also told that
"You look so different today. I think it is because you are wearing pants. I think you look a lot more professional when you wear pants. Just my opinion. Your dresses always have so many...patterns."
but seeing as how this came from one of my boys
I think I'll just file that conversation away somewhere
And finally I received good & bad news in about a minute
good - the teacher I'm filling in for the year is not coming back next
so the possibility to stay in the same position two years in a row is actually there
or should I say was there for about 30 seconds until I heard the bad...
bad - pink slip number 5 is on it's way
if only they could find a way to get these to us while working
that would be nice of them
because going to the post office to pick this letter up again
just really doesn't sit right with me
layoffs went out as far back as 11 years seniority
that's not so fun either
