Tonight was the start of our Parent/Teacher conferences. Because I have a Master's class that meets each Thursday night from 4 to about 6:30, I sent a letter to the parent's of each of my students informing them that I would only be available from 6:30 on for the rest of the night. After my class was over, I went to my School room to meet with whatever parents wanted to see me. I had ONE student who came during the time I had left. I went by the office, and found out I had had another student who came by before 6:30. They NEVER listen. I would have liked to speak with them. I want to work with them to help their child succeed, but work with me!
On a lighter note, when the conferences ended for the night, I walked out to my car to find 40-50 MPH winds with rain, sleet, and yes, SNOW! It didn't last long, but it did rain all the way home. It was one of those "Horizontal" rainstorms. With the wind it blew sideways probably three times as far as it fell vertically.
I go back tomorrow for three more hours. Want to bet on how many more parents I'll see?
Take care, and CARE. Stick.
