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!
I'd like to see Laurie Hernandez, but she's about the only one.  I just can't watch DWTS!

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!

  1. Ohhhh! Open House! I've always felt bad for the teachers that have to deal with an extra extra long day like that - plus there are some parents who talk the teachers ear off, and no matter how much that teacher nods and smiles, you can tell they are wishing the open house was over. ;) We stopped going to those, because the Parent/Teacher conferences are much better for that 1:1 interaction with the teacher. ;)

    I love Oriental Trading! I always get stuff for the kids' goody bags for birthdays, plus Easter fun to load up their baskets. Can't beat their prices! :)


I love comments! Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
