Meet Mrs. Negativity

That would be least according to one of my parents. That's right, I am the most negative teacher at this school. I am the reason her son is having issues with his grades and behavior. Hello, nice to meet you. I don't know if you guessed or not, but I am not happy about this. I talked with one of my parents today and instead of losing my temper, I politely told her maybe she needed to talk to someone else since I am apparently the problem. GRRRR!!!!Ok, I am done venting now. Thanks for listening!

Oh it burns

So I had a biopsy (sp?) today and it burns like crazy! I guess the numbing agent wore off. I'll find out next week what is up with my spot - it looks like a really dark birth mark.

So some of my 6th graders are showing their true colors this week and last, which is not helping my stress level at all. Is it bad to hope that some of your students get suspended so you don't have them in class for a few days?

Adrian is still alive and kicking and, according to the doctor, doing well!

I found a prayer that I thought was awesome in my teacher book today that I would like to share: Lord, you know the motives of my heart. You alone judge. Show me when to CLOSE MY MOUTH so others can hear Your voice. Instruct me when to speak up with love.
