Conference Week


Well, at least none of my students seem headed for the state penitentiary this year!

All of today's conferences went really well. Even the one I was a little nervous about because the mom had been a wee bit confrontational at Back to School Night. Whew!

One perk during conference week is that it coincides with the on-campus book fair. Two students donated three new books for my classroom collection that I had requested. I always enjoy getting more books to share with my students. I'd tell you what titles I received, but I'm too tired to remember what they are right now. Conferences always wear me out.

    I didn't go to school in this country so I don't know if it is that or the fact that the times they are a changing but you teachers seem to get a raw deal over here. Parents are NUTS....but not us of course :)

    Great cartoon!

    Emma's teacher conference is next week. She's a pretty good kid, but I'm always afraid when I go, her teacher will tell me Emma is on a one-way ride to reform school or something!

    I hear you, sweet girl! They are the WORST!! I always work myself up over nothing and it usually turns out just fine.
    You deserve a much needed rest tonight.

    That is great that you got some new books from your students but it sounds what you really need is a good night sleep. Happy dreams!

    As a parent I LOVE the book fairs! Because I get to be the one buying all those books for you teachers! This year my son's teacher requested several books on China that were at the fair, you guessed it, I BOUGHT THEM ALL FOR HER!!!!!!

    Make sure you take time for yourself this week!! Feet up, glass of wine, good book, maybe a little Gray's Anatomy! Conference week is not easy!
