I am a teacher. And also a nerd. And sometimes I do things in public that make others stare at me.
The thoughts and ideas in this blog are my own, unless otherwise stated,and do not represent the views of my employer in any way.
I did not anticipate trying on THREE different dresses today because, while they all fit my newly emerging width, they have become too short.
By the third dress I stopped caring as much. I don’t typically wear above the knee dresses to work but I am running out of options, here.
This was one of the birthday presents Mr. Kaaay got me this year- they only just arrived. I also got hobbit slippers and zombie flip flops :D
I’m thinking of putting the Firefly print in the nursery- it’s the colors we picked, and I think it is gorgeous.
THIS SHIT FUCKED UP MY GROOVE LAST NIGHT
Reblogging again because Carrigans comment is on point
How does it work when you work night shift? Like, do you go home an hour early, and understand you have to work an extra hour at night? Or do they adjust the shifts two nights a year to compensate for our stupid need to change clocks?
Sad news: I had even less money in the bank than I thought. Had to take money from savings just to put gas in my car and that is ALL I can spend until Friday.
Happy news: it’s the choir/drama field trip! We are going to go perform at a mall and I am so excited! The kids have worked so hard for this!
Other news: I have now begun using my belly band for all jeans, and my eyebrow pencil rolled under my belly on the sink and I legit lost it for a second. 2nd trimester, ahoy!
You have to submit the week's lesson plans to your principal? Can you tell me more about that? I've never heard of that. Most of the schools in my area are probably too big for that situation.
Yep! We’ve got around 22ish teachers (that could be off by a few in either direction, it’s too early today for counting). We are to turn in hard copies of our lesson plans by 8 am the first weekday of every week.
We used to be able to just share them from our electronic planners, but the district wanted a better paper trail, so we have to print them every week and turn them in. It’s so my principal can prove that he has reviewed all lessons for the required elements (rigor, differentiation, a warm up related to the activity, etc)
Just emailed my principal to let him know lesson plans will be a day late.
I think he’ll be okay with it becauuuuuuse a) I have a sub Monday and b) I’m always on time otherwise.
Is agatha christie appropriate for 13 years old?
Agatha Christie is appropriate for anyone who likes and wants to read suspenseful, occasionally graphic murder mysteries, age notwithstanding.
I read And Then There Were None in 7th grade, so I was 12 or 13, depending on the time of year.
Had to take two Fioricet today (how come I can take that but not ibuprofen? It’s ibuprofen with caffeine) and I’m feeling like I just had 4-6 drinks.
Guess who’s done grading and has already apologized to their spouse for an obnoxious evening to come?
I’m going to post up the narrative here, because I’d like #education’s advice on what specifically to address with this student. Obviously any identifying information has been removed. I am leaving any spelling issues because she was working towards creating a dialect.
Feel free to reply w/ anything you think I need to address. (I have my opinions, but want a full picture before I sit down with zir)
I’m at the point where I am very, very terrified of being a mom.
I know I’ll be great at the mom-stuff. I’ve been able to change diapers practically one handed for 15 years now. I’ve rocked babies to sleep. I’ve walked them to the moon and back when they refused. I’ve buckled countless models of baby seats.
But the months where I am flat out broke make me question how we can ever afford this. I had to fill my migraine meds today and did a silent prayer that the $11 copay would be approved on my debit card and I still have a week till payday. (March is an expensive month- both cards are registered in Mr. Kaaay’s name and we just started paying the OB-GYN’s scheduled fees)

hey so this is kinda awkward but i'm in drama club at our school and i'm basically playing a mistress from france who comes to rome for the first time and i have to like charm all the guys and a teacher is also in the production (he plays guitar) and so our producer said i have to go to him and stroke his chin/play with his beard because that's my character and i feel really weird even though it really isn't sexual or anything but still it's a teacher/an adult! :/ any advice on how to handle it?
Honestly, if you aren’t comfortable with it because he is an adult, you have the right to draw the line there. My friend in high school got rid of a kissing scene because she didn’t want her first kiss to be on stage (and that was with someone her age). If it makes you feel weird, tell the producer that you just don’t feel comfortable doing it. If s/he insists upon it, you can always get your parents on your side, too. No school production should require a character played by a student to physically flirt with a character played by an adult.
And then a student turned in a narrative that was so racist I didn’t know how to react to it. Ugh.
