Pet peeves in my classroom

1. Trying to complete homework in the three minutes before the tardy bell rings.

2.  Answering test questions with”IDK”

3.  Needing to sharpen a pencil as I am calling out words for the spelling test.

4.  Beginning an essay answer with b/c (for because)

5.  Not knowing where we are in the book when called on

6.  Using “text talk” in essays — going 2 the store b4 dark

7.  Completing a 250 word essay in ten minutes

8.  Asking me the exact question I just answered

9.  Passing gas in the classroom

10. Writing on my dry erase board without permission

What do you have to add?

Who am I?

Let me introduce myself.

I am a wife, a mother, a (young) empty-nester, and a soon-to-be mother-in-law.  I have recently left my town of more than thirty years and home of twenty years to move to another state.  I have left behind family, longtime friends, and a fulfilling job.  I have taught and tutored for many years, and have enjoyed establishing relationships with students, siblings, and parents.

I am anticipating the “new” in my life.  I will find a new, fabulous church.  I will find new forever friends.  I will establish a new tutoring service to cooperate with parents to help their children achieve and succeed.

I know God has a plan and a purpose in my life and in the life of my family.  My times are in His hand.
