It is so funny to see the kids at the grocery store or Wal-Mart. They act like they haven't seen you in a long time when they just saw you that day! Then the next day they brag that they saw you in town. So funny!

I lived right down the street from the elementary school and as I got older he would stop by our house while we were waiting on the bus for middle and high school to see how me and my sisters were doing. I still see him all the time at the grocery store and he always stops and talks to me.


Now my second grade teacher, that's another story. LOL!!!

Thanks, Star. I do have some special, caring parents in my room. It just seems that those who are not caring are the loudest ones. What I also hate to see is a parent who is reading me the riot act and treating their kids like garbage, too. Especially in public!

I prayed for the kids on my bus all the time!

Thanks, MC. You might not have human children, but you have a brain!!! Plus you pay your taxes and are entitled to speak your mind. I am of the school to treat others like I want to be treated. You are right about some teachers being in it for the tenure or other perks. I get riled up about that, too! It would be great to have the promising kids, but I have to tell you that I get an absolute thrill when I connect with a kid that others have given up on. I have 14 challenges this year (three moved away--put into another teacher's class by parent demand). I can see that those three students will have trouble in their new classroom. The present teacher has already gone to the principal about the students and talked to the parents. She told the parents that she is seeing exactly what I saw and what I worked on with the kids. One of the kids is absolutely refusing to do the work. He told me that I didn't teach him!!! I don't know what he is telling his new teacher!

You are right about kids and parents having an "entitled mentality," (my words). It is hard to combat that when so much is just handed out to them and not a lot is expected in return.

I think teachers get a bad rep with parents because of the poor ones who are more interested in their union perks and tenure than trying to give kids a decent education, so some parents are inclined to automatically assume that the teacher is the problem. So there are problems on both sides of the equation. If only there were some way to put the promising kids in the hands of teachers who actually give a d---, nobody could beat education in this country. But so few teachers, parents, and children feel that education is something to put effort into---they seem to want it handed out, like a pill.

Like CM3, I don't have children, so I'm not really qualified to speak out on this subject, but it gets me riled enough to say what I feel anyway.

Hope you have the kind of Sunday you're hoping for!
