Kindergarten? Already?

Here we go again…more f un with East Nowhere School district! Let me get this out in teh open-the school district I live in is considered “Premier.” Personally, based on interactions with the dipwad CSE/CPSE chairperson, I’m not impressed. I see a regular, dysfunctional school district that has yet to really impress me. The other Continue reading →

Student Council Hell

How I get myself into these things, I surely do not know. Seriously. I wonder if it truly is my lack of attention at faculty meetings, where 90% of the items don’t apply to me.   Ahh. The joys of being a “specials” teacher!   This year, I got saddled with Student Council. Normally, not Continue reading →

Chutzpah. Serious Chutzpah.

So, I’m taking the 4th graders on a trip to a local art establishment for a photo taking-art making extravaganza. I had to ask for chaperones. The letter was clear as crystal. I’d take the first 2 in, and they had to have the stupid mandated child abuse training to go. I got two parents Continue reading →

She brought up the fact that they were starting to group the kids, and that Isaac was singled out to “experience Sunday school in Continue reading →

IEP aftermath

Yesterday, we had Isaac’s IEP annual review. As y’all know, I’m not the CPSE chair’s biggest fan. I’m not the biggest fan of the Nisky schools IEP team either…but thank GOD ECEC is on our side…and as a team we push for what Isaac needs… Well, the IEP was smooth, and quick and whoah mama…over Continue reading →

Trying Tuesday

As in trying to keep my head on straight and be sane about things! Bah! So, yesterday, Isaac was accompanied home with an accident report where the teachers all have NO CLUE how it happened. Yeah, you read that right. They have NO STINKIN CLUE how it happened. So, I went in for my usual Continue reading →
