If you are having an issue with something your child's teacher is or is not doing, it's best to let them know as soon as possible. Or if there are special circumstances, let's inform the teacher at meet the teacher night. For instance, if your child has a hearing impairment and needs to be seated in the front at all times, let's not wait until JANUARY 29TH to call the teacher. And yell at her. Because her son isn't making good grades. Because he can't hear. Because he's not in the front row. Because the teacher didn't know it was an issue.

Until you've sat through a professional development meeting at a school, you haven't experienced the 7th circle of hell. From today:
*In a gradeschool teacher voice. This lady taught 2nd grade* "I would like to give you some strategies for note-taking now that you can take back to your classrooms. I have used these strategies, and I really think they are of great value. The first is...
writing with a pencil."
Seriously. Had to hear about that one for 15 minutes.
In other news, I totally saved a life today! A kid during first period all the sudden was on the ground making crazy "I'm in pain save me" noises. I ran to get the nurse! She called another nurse! And they called 911! So he went to the hospital and had his appendix out.

This actually happened today. I was a little uncomfortable!
Our principal likes to add his own little announcements every day after the student body president does the pledge and all the boring stuff. Sometimes it's a little story, sometimes a reminder about something, sometimes trash talking another school that Georgetown's about to paly, whatever. But, today, it was racy!
Today was the second day back from school, and Mr. T gets on the announcements to remind everyone about dress code and electronics.
"Remember, ipods, cell phones, and other electronics are not allowed. I know all of you like to have something electronic in every orifice, it seems, but let's try to keep those at home."
I almost died.
