Day Three...Three Kids Sent to the Principal's Office

Not a good sign that I had three kids pulled out of class today to talk with the principal. Two had had a disagreement of some sort and one child got whacked (Accidentally? On purpose? Who knows?) The third child had to go to the office because at recess he was playing way too rough with another kid and they had been disrespectful to the playground teacher that tried to intervene.

On the positive side of teaching, I got three really nice notes today. One was a note included the line, "You are the smartest teacher in the school." (It's good that someone has finally recognized my brilliance, dammit!) Another one was a picture of me. The artist handed it to me and said, "Here's a really bad picture of you." (I know she meant her drawing was bad, not that I looked bad, but it sure didn't come across that way). And the third note was a head-to-toe drawing of me, and boy, I've got quite the figure in it! (See below)

Not bad for the first Friday of the school year. :)


  1. Wow, that is quite a drawing!
    It sounds like you have some challenging behavior issues this year. I would be interested to hear how you handle Behavior Management in your class- it's one of the teaching topics that causes me much anxiety!

  2. I agree j4luck, it is quite a drawing! I'm glad she made my waistline slimmer, but WOW! And those heels are just a bit unrealistic. :)
