due to lack of interest...NO, not mine...the students.
Drug (dragged? pulled?) my lazy butt out of bed at the unGodly hour of 6:00. Actually showered, brushed teeth (okay, maybe that does happen at least once a day), and DID my hair - No ponytail for this teacher...put on CLEAN clothes. Am I the only slob that lets go all summer long or are there other teacher's out there that can relate??? I dress very professionally 170+ days a year (disregarding the jeans on Fridays and the utter chaos of Homecoming and Sno weeks) - So - during the summer - well, it's ugly. That's all I am going to say.
Anyways...back to the post at hand (actually end of fingertips) always maintain proper typing posture...right Becky? - Anyways - where was I - oh ya - showered, hair done, eyeliner on (had to go home one day cuz I forgot eyeliner - always check for eyeliner) - got in my car - drove 30 miles to school - ran around like an idiot pulling things out of cupboards (kleenex box, CD player, electric pencil sharpener, necessary items) - finding materials for the four students I expected to show up at 8:00...8:00 comes ...and...All to no avail...there I was... all alone, not a student in sight (lone tear slowly runs down shiny clean, eye-linered face) - WTF! sorry. but that's what I actually thought. So I call the Superintendent, she has no idea - suggests that I spend the next two hours calling students, which I happily agreed to do, cuz that's the kind of obedient, team-player, all around good teacher that I am. Long story-short, summer school is canceled except for the state mandated testing that will happen next week. Yay!!!! - I can go home, put my hair in a ponytail, change into my smelly shorts and stained t-shirt - and KNIT!!!!!
