I honestly didn't think anything could be worse than being off Mon, and Tues then a schedule change on Wednesday (we were supposed to be half day, but they made it a 2 hr delay and then tomorrow is our half day) followed by trick or treating....... BUT IT CAN be worse.....and it was! We got to work this morning and there was no power. We then had kids on sugar rush/crash and no lights. and were expected to teach! I love that our superintendent said in his call to parents that "teachers are well prepared to teach as normal in the naturally lit areas of the building" 1. teachers were NOT prepared to do this... 2... there was nothing NORMAL about today... and 3... my grade had to relocated bc we have no "naturally lit areas"...
The day before we had a woodpecker going nutso in our school 10 mins before kids came in....
Tomorrow is our Halloween parade (into the town from the school) and then Halloween parties. SO not looking forward to this. Bets on what's going to be our crazy point tomorrow???? sorry for the vent!
I'm so sorry Patience! The schools around here close when there is no power. Our Superintendents feel it's not safe to stay open without power. Your Superintendent is an IDIOT!
Yeah it's not so much the power thing itself but the crazy kids. I can totally picture it. When I was teaching in Texas it snowed (like 1/4 of an inch). Kids were so excited to see snow it ruined the rest of the week.
and today was our Halloween Parade into TOWN ( a good hour walk to be able to get here an dback and stop for trick or treating) followed by a party. then the kids had early dismissal and I had to sit and stare at report cards until it was past time for me ot be off (and Im STILL not done! and now the 3 yr old wont go to bed! Im so freaking EXHAUSTED!
awww Patience! I hope you get some good sleep tonight and your DH lets you sleep in this morning!
