10 things

1. I will never, ever plan another field trip again in all of my life.

2. Why do we have school assemblies and have to provide entertainment for them? Why?

3. If you choose not to work out the problems, you choose to repeat this grade again. Grrr...

4. I don't mind answering your questions, but if talking to you is like talking to one of my kids, I am going to start avoiding you. For reals.

5. I hate this time of year. There is too much going on and not enough time. I have parent conferences coming up and one parent returned the appointment sheet. One. Thanks for nothing guys. I am just going to bombard you with this appointment sheet just like I bombarded you with the field trip permission sheet.

6. I want to take more tests for different certifications but they are so expensive. When I was certified, they had EC-4. They changed it back to EC-6. They may not seem like a big difference until you start looking for jobs. I wish they would have left it alone and let me be certified as EC-6.

7. I love the change in weather.

8. Sit down. You don't need a new pencil. You don't need a tissue. You just went to the bathroom. No, I am not sending you to the nurse. Sit down. Stop humming. Sttttoopppppp! And your mom said she was sending you back to the doctor to get your meds adjusted when?

9. Can you share your meds with some of my other friends? Please?

10. And don't get an attitude about people helping you. We are all busy. You are an adult. Ask again for help. Duh.

So tired and run down

I am trying to recover from a cold that hasn't fully materialized and hasn't yet gone away yet. Theraflu is my cold drug of choice and I am waiting for the right time tonight to knock myself out.

The class was rowdy today and one student in particular was more out of it than usual. He makes sounds through out the day. "Ow", "Ouch", "Ewwww" are some of his usual utterances. The problem is that his sounds are loud and frequent. I have started having him sit out part of his recess for his frequent outbursts. I have not been told any behavioral issues but the child has them. He can not stay seated not for one minute. He sees any opportunity as an opportunity to talk to me. I can not wait for a parent conference to find out what is going on at home.
