I used to have a MySpace account. I started my blog there. But after I had a few too many technical difficulties, I moved the blog here. I have since closed the MySpace account. I hate to lose all of my blogs from that time, so from time to time I repost them here.
This one was originally posted on December 6, 2006.
The class did not want me to leave a "bad" note. Then one girl pipes up with this: "She does. The last time she subbed I ended up having to write an essay."
And that just pissed me off...
- I do not write "bad" notes. I report to the classroom teacher what each class did. It is up to the teacher to determine value.
- If the students were doing things they shouldn't have been, that is their fault, not mine. Like a letter grade--they earn the note, I don't randomly "give" it.
- The class should behave. They shouldn't try to bribe me or guilt me into writing a "good" note that was not earned. And...
- The girl who had to write an essay was TALKING during a TEST! She got off easy.
I shouldn't care. I really shouldn't. Kids are all about getting away with as much as they can. But today my patience fell somewhere below my knees, and they just TICKED ME OFF!!!
