The students in the computer aided drafting class did not believe that their teacher was on jury duty. They accused him of going on vacation. They were sure he was out of town.
Never mind the fact that he had stopped in on various occasions. He attended Back to School night. He was grading their work.
On Monday, Mr. G emailed me to let me know that the jury was deliberating. (Finally!) On Tuesday, they still were. So, I left Tuesday afternoon expecting not to return on Wednesday. They'd be done, right?
I told the classes that there was a 70% chance their teacher would be back on Wednesday.
Tuesday night, 11 PM, I got the email. They were still deliberating.
So, on Wednesday, I hedged again. Would he be back on Thursday? Hopefully?
Again, Wednesday, I left with the expectation that I would not return Thursday.
This time, I was right. I got an email at 9:30 PM. They had rendered a verdict. They were done.
I wished I could have been a fly on the wall on Thursday. I would have loved to have seen the kiddos' faces when they walked in and Mr. G was there.
So, the CAD class is now over. The school year is officially underway. Goodbye, summer.
