I finished the final tonight for the required class I have been taking this semester. The majority of the nights I was there, I was wishing I could drop it. Some parts of the class were interesting but the class was very labor intensive and required that we do a collaboration project. It involved 5 other people, two of whom already had decided what they wanted to do before we even started. There were passive-aggressive time demands which tied up 6 Saturdays. There was the night when one of them sent an email complaining about me and sent it to me too. From comments I read, I got the impression that some weren’t happy with me although I only made one comment the first night we were trying to make decisions about what it should be about. I tried hard to be cooperative and to get along for the sake of the project. I would prefer to work with friends or by myself another time. After the exam, I had to have a 10 minute meeting with the professor about what we learned about the class and if we were using it at work. I do try to get along at work although there are a few people there that don’t reciprocate.
I found a grant for the computer teacher to apply for. I posted the address on Facebook and have been finding people to vote for her. I was on the phone last night with Mom explaining the steps for her. I hope she gets it as then she would get a small grant for her project and either a flip camera or an IPOD nano. I should have applied for that myself as I could use the flip camera to tape health issues my student is having so we could forward it to his doctor. We borrowed one from the co-op for a while and his doctor found it helpful. Maybe I will at the next round which is at the end of May. Not an opportune time but if it is meant to happen, it will happen.
It was in the eighties today and will be in the seventies tomorrow. A few of the things I planted are coming up. The paras and the nurse got me a impatient today. The flowers are so interested as they have layers.
I am starting to pack up my classroom. I am extricating my stuff out of the classroom stuff. Scott and Tammy are going to go through the rest and figure out where to put things. It is hard to do this again. I hope this move will be a good thing for me.
Tammy and I are taking kids to the high school on Friday. Four of them are complaining about it and are trying to get out of it. Three of the four are also complaining about the field trip also. Thanks kids………
