Weekend Thoughts

Randomness…

Inauguration:

  • First thought- we’re screwed.
  • #vomitty
  • How did this happen?

    Recycled band uniform? Red gloves? Really? OK…

 

School: For those parents who think it is perfectly ok to do drugs while pregnant– come teach them for awhile. The frustration, not only for the teachers, but for the child is intense. Sometimes I just hate people.

Women’s March on Washington: Inspiring! I think the most amazing thing is that it happened on ALL 7 continents! (Way to represent Antarctica!) Non-violent, no arrests. The intelligence, kindness, compassion, and dignity was amazing.

Do not get me wrong– I am not wishing Donald Trump to fail– that would hurt us all. I would like for Donald Trump to learn– to allow himself to grown and be enlightened. I would like for him to be a nice person and set an example for the young of this country– a POSITIVE example. Why shout hate and lies constantly? Why rant and rave like a lunatic toddler that hasn’t had a nap in 4 days? Is that not exhausting for him? It exhausts me.

“And that’s why I feel like this hearing was a perfect metaphor for the worst of the education system in America,” Noah said. “Here’s a student who’s clearly not proficient in the required subject matter, but because of the system, we know they’re still going to get pushed through.”

Betsy DeVos.

I do not personally know ANYONE, Republican or Democrat, teacher or otherwise, that thinks this lady is a good idea. So what the hell?!

The above quote is from an article from Huffington Post, Trevor Noah Eviscerates Betsy DeVos Over Her Confirmation Hearing.

How has it come to this, and WHAT are we going to do? This dumbass thinks teachers are overpaid, and that we no longer need to adhere to the Americans with Disabilities Act. Um, wait what?

Well, at least we will be able to defend ourselves from grizzly bears while teaching fractions.

It’s hard being an elementary school teacher and having an elementary age child. Especially a very talkative child. Her academics are through the roof! But apparently her mouth never stops. 

I know these students. I have these students. I say to my daughter, “Don’t be that kid!” 

Sometimes I wish I didn’t understand about classrooms and test scores. I wish I was one of the many confused or uninformed parents. 

Alas. I know all too well. Behavior chart starts next Monday. #thatkid

Man she’s awesome though! ❤
