I'm linking up with Stacy.
So... Open House happened. I hate Open House. I started my day off with an early meeting, taught classes all day, attended another meeting during my conference period, Had about an hour and a half to freshen up and get snacks before parents started coming. I had a 13 hour day in a dress and heels. Can you say, "Exhausted?"
Another reason I hate Open House is that, since I teach sixth graders, we've already met many of the parents at our "Cardinal Camp" the week before school started, so I really don't have much more to say to them yet. We've just been in school three weeks!
Further, the parents go to see all 6 or 7 of their child's teachers, and we all tell them basically the same things, which are district policy: supplies, grading, online grades, email, late work policy, makeup work policy, tardy policy, and so on.
And I hate Open House because the parents that you really need to meet and talk to don't attend! Sorry for ranting! I'm not the only one who dislikes school events such as this!
In other news... I ordered some great classroom supplies from Oriental Trading. I got 100 pencils for $14.99. That's about 15 cents per pencil. And free shipping! I think I may look into their party and wedding supplies.
I heard Rick Perry's dancing debut went less than well! No surprise to me!
And since this is my blog, and I can post what I want, let me just say, "I love this kid!"
Have a good week!
