Teacher Talk Tuesday
True Confession: I got kinda snippy with the secretary in the main office today. Bottom line is that I chose to use our old, reliable, sooo much better grading program as opposed to the awkward, horrible, unreliable piece of crap grading program we are supposed to use so that parents can check up on their kid every waking hour of the day.I had originally intended to use both programs and double post everything. Then it was December and , well, yeah. I didn't get things posted on the crappy program, but I did get my semester grades posted last Friday. A parent called and wanted to see alllllll her son's grades (he got an A, what does she want???). I said I'd email her the other report (same info. different format). The secretary got very By the Book with me and said "Well! I was told that everyone is supposed to use this program." Who cares. I said that I was told the same thing, but.... oh well.
On a different note, since our school is hopping on the High Schools That Work bandwagon, I will be attending the national conference in Nashville this summer- July 9-12. Anyone else going to be there? We could
ditch the sessions and go hang out hook up and grab lunch or coffee or something.
