Rants and Ramblings

I escorted a girl to the principal's office today.

I actually had a student tell me today, "Mrs. Reese, this is hard, and not even cool, or fun" to which I responded, "You're looking at me like I should care that you think this is not cool or fun...turn around and do your assignment."

I really wanted to give both of these kids a good, hard slap across the face, but I didn't.

A lot of the time, I love my job.

Today, not really one of those days, I'm not going to lie.

I am so sick of hearing kids whine, and complain about situations they have created for themselves after slacking off the entire year. "I'm not going to graduate!" Really? I find that shocking since you stopped coming to my class half way through third term.

Today was one of those days where I think, "Do I really want to do this again next year?"

It's a good thing summer vacation is almost here, because I am reaching the edge of my sanity.

  1. Somehow I can't see cute little Katie wanting to "slap" anyone.
    I am tired of the whining too...only I live with them.
    Sanity?
    I lost mine years ago.
    Wanna be my roommate in the padded cell?
    Have you read my last post?
    I clearly state that I am moments away from a straight jacket!
    Hang in there!

  2. Yeah. This being my second year, and it is a re-run from last year, it comes with the last-few-weeks-of-school territory! The kids are bursting at the seams, and their lack of preparation is your emergency! I'm about ready to die myself :D

  3. Amen sister! We can make it! Just think... we don't have a single more full week this school year! Only 2 more 'A' days and good thing because my A-3 class just about made me lose it!
