I'm a single mom with two great kids living near Dallas, Texas. This is my life; day to day things that are probably only important to me. This is my record of my ups, my downs and the road that I've taken along the way. For whatever reason YOU'RE here, I hope you find something you can enjoy and/or relate to. God bless.

Off to work

It's been a fun ride the last 2 days, wonder what's in store today. I don't think I've had as much trouble with students as I've had with some teachers ...some of them are just bullies. You know what? Teenagers react to adult bullies one way...they stand up to them. I know for a fact that you can discipline (and put the fear of God in them) with out bullying.
More later...I'm late, as usual...mostly because I'm watching Green Day's video 'Wake me up when September ends' with Charlie. Yeah...get over it. It's a good video.
Out the door, hugs!

Hey Kathi - I hope you had a good day. I remember when I used to be a substitute. The kids mainly wanted to be treated like people.

Have a great day at school. Some times you have to look at it from the students point of view, and you'd understand more. Not saying you dont understand, because you used to sub me, and you know the way we acted when we were in High School. Its just another one of them days. Keep your head up high, and you will be ok.

p.s. not that we were bad, in front you Mrs. Kathi, b/c she would bit our head off..jk.

I had a psychology teacher in High School bully me. The guy road my case all semester...to this day, I don't know why. I ended up flunking that class and had no respect for him.

He died 10 years ago. I have his obituary, clipped from the paper, hanging on my wall. It reminds me of what not to be in life.

Thank you, Kathi, for being the kind of teacher you are in that you genuinely want kids to be better people...we need more leaders like you.

Enjoy your weekend!

I know when I used to sub, some of the teachers I came across blew me away. I remember once subbing in a Middle SChool PE class. A kid came to me after class and said, "How come you don't yell at us? All the other PE teachers do!" That really got to me!
