Another strange week at work. I came back from spring break to find out one of my students was moved to another town. I will miss him. It was sad not to be able to say good-bye. He actually was one of my favorite ones as when he smiled, it was heartwarming. I cleaned out his desk and locker. The English teacher has some work she wants sent to him so I will have to figure out who to contact to mail that.
I had my job evaluation. I work at a very discouraging place. Nothing you do right is ever acknowledged there. It is so demoralizing at times. I got asked questions for which I have no say. I don’t write the laws of this country. It is like the comments are taunts. I am afraid I ended up going back to my room and ranting as it ticked me off so much. It is so hard to keep what I really think in sometimes. I have looked around a little for other options but haven’t seen anything workable yet.
The student who was in the hospital got out Monday night and was sent to school on Wednesday. I have never had surgery and then been able to do that. He looked so pale and frail yesterday and today. He has lost weight. He was coughing a lot today. I hope he doesn’t end up with pneumonia again.
I worked on the group presentation we are doing for the collaboration class at Washburn. I got the bulk of the PowerPoint done tonight and have a basic idea of what I am going to say. Now if I don’t stumble over my tongue, it will be ok. I have go in this morning to practice it with other members of the group.
I had the last IEPs this week. Now it is just corrections that have to be made. I have fixed three so far. I hope they send the others soon so I can have that finished for the year.
I feel like planting something this weekend. I hope it doesn’t rain all day tomorrow.
