    Good morning I am glad we have this extra week off this is very much needed.

    It's freezing out here and I am glad I am home and will be very well rested.

    1/8/2018 start and in 4/5 more months we will be writing about summer break/ schools and summer camps. Oh how can I forget the next 100 days of school the end of January/February ( for me this is)...

    Have a good week ladies!

    Tomorrow I'm not ready. I think we will have a delay because of the weather also.

    Our seniors this year are so lazy and lack motivation. I'm over them all.

    I have never felt this meh about going to school since I've been a teacher.

    This year I am also teaching college and I am finding that I really enjoy teaching adults. Maybe that has something to do with it?

    ^^damn, i can't see it till i get off this work laptop and away from these blockers that are supposed to stop them from accessing all social media but clearly don't work since we had about 3 fights this afternoon because of ishhhht talking on Facebook during school :rolleyes:

    I'm so damn tired of parents' attitudes. You tired of me calling you? Then tell your son to attend my class because every time he skips...i have to call you. Be a better parent. I'm doing my job, you do yours.

    I had remind but they wouldn’t sign up. Like, I’m just not about that talking. I just need to document contact :) I know they love their phones because their kids do - so I just text them from my cell. The app let me choose a local number so I don’t have to worry about them having my number.

    Knowing that my name was mentioned in a meeting with the superintendent got these yt women shook. What happens if they find out my median growth percentile was 10pts above the schools’, including the class I cotaught in where I was reduced to a HQ assistant and 22pts about without :afro:. Or that alone it was 5 pts above EVERY school in the system.

    One student in my college class is probably gonna fail.
    1)He comes to class 30min late or not at all
    2) When he is in class, he doesn't do jack.
    3) He doesn't submit his assignments

    2 of my students came to me just outraged by his lack of care in taking this course. I'm not even bothered because the time will come when he will ask for extra credit because he is failing....and I WILL bring all of this up.

    This ain't K-12...I will fail you and feel no ways about it.

    My Student comes in and says “what is wrong with white people!? Well not all white people, but white boys. It’s never black people. It’s never women!”
    We discussed the school shooting a bit in class.
    I was just glad he said it and his peers agreed. He’s white.
    On the flip I’ve been wearing my black history month tee shirts and one of my black male students stops me in the hall and asks if he can get one of these shirts. I should’ve done an essay contest so I could give him one. He’s a kid with so much potential. 8th grade and reads at 12.9+
    Today’s shirt is this one
