This was the teacher meme that started it all for me tonight. The "Success Kid" meme felt appropriate because I brought home all my students' assessment data for math, writing, and the language arts benchmark to sort by student ... and I actually did it! I'm one step closer to report card preparation.

The next appropriate Teacher Meme for me tonight is the "Thinking About Life" Bear meme. This will be me tonight as I seem to have a lot of energy and it's nearly 9 pm.

Why am I worrying about having cute crafts? The superintendent will be visiting my school soon and we all know what a well decorated classroom means, right?

But back to Fun Fridays. Homework is due on Fridays in my class. Inevitably, there is always one or two students who show up with no homework. I understand that five year olds are very dependent on their parents but still. Responsibility begins at young age!

It is my number one pet peeve. Just because a child is small doesn't mean they can't learn some responsibility for their actions. But considering how crazy households can be in the morning I guess I can be more lenient from time to time. This leads to my next pet peeve. Parents in Pajamas! It's 8 am not 5 am. Please put on real pants. You have time. Treat yourself to a cute outfit in the morning. You deserve it.

Little do they know, I rely on the aide to help in this process and ... then they take her time from me. Don't they know its because of her help that I was able to accomplish this feat? There goes the ability to maintain it. Womp Womp Womp.

Speaking of success being a group effort the next meme is to say thank you via Kevin Durant. I work very hard to get my 24 Kindergarteners from a low socio economic, primarily ELL neighborhood to excel at all Kindergarten standards but parents work harder in different but equally important ways.

And I've saved the best for last. In no other profession is taking a sick day ten times harder than going to work sick or feeling low. Every time I complain someone always says, "Well at least you have Summers off." Cue the smallest violin. Only a teacher will understand.
