I am annoyed.

Let me tell you why.

It is grading season here in teacherland.

I cannot give grades if I don't have access to the work.

I do not have access to the Third Graders' work. Why? Because those little darlings have a habit of screwing up the files. Why, just this evening, I found some of their work in the Fifth Grade folder. A self-promotion perhaps? I think not.

Next Tuesday's tech lesson will be, "I GIVE GRADES IN THIS CLASS, SO YOU'D BETTER PAY ATTENTION!" I am going to (again {sigh}) give a lesson on how to properly save your work.

Oddly enough, the Second Graders don't seem to have a problem with this.

Those Third Graders... They're a special bunch. Good thing I like them.

LOL! Reminds me of our favorite comment to our son when he was about that age: "Good thing you're so cute!" I suspect it's the main reason he survived childhood. {g}

Hi Rose! (waving)

Just found your blog through Susan's. I didn't know you were a teacher!

I've often wondered what sort of things you wrote. We haven't talked much lately, but you were one of the first people to "talk" to me when I started going to the forum. A while ago now!

Heya Cindy!

How the heck are you?

Well I wasn't a teacher when we first met. {g}

Last summer, I began working at the school my girls attend. I'm the librarian/technology specialist. We go up to 5th grade.

Thank Dog my report cards are done. Now I can focus on my writing. I was working on my Wake Island project for quite a long time, but I'm taking a break from it to crank out a 6,000 word shortie for younger kids.

I did that for a few reasons: For one, I am simply dying to _finish_ something besides a picture book text, and I also don't want Wake Island to be my first sh!tty novel. That one has a very special place in my heart and I want to make sure I can do it justice.

I'll go check out your blog too!
