Still Frustrated

November 8th, 2013 at 11:27 pm

So I've got an appointment set up for Wednesday with the principal, guidance counselor, and the horrible teacher. That woman is a piece of work, I tell you. She knew she was supposed to have the work for DD to get today. My daughter waited before school until one minute before the bell rang and the teacher was not in her classroom. She had to run to not be late to her first class.

Then after school, no sign of the teacher. She waited 15 minutes. The classroom was open and the lights on, just no teacher. I think she did it on purpose. And I think she'll try to play it like DD didn't show up for it. I am beyond livid. B***h is going down. Sorry for the language, I seldom get worked up enough to think it, let alone sort of type it out.

Oh, well, nothing to be done now. I have a weekend that does not need to be taken up with anger and resentment.

I got 10 quarts of rabbit meat canned today and plan to make soup and soup stock for canning tomorrow with all the ribcage pieces. Hoping to get at least 10 quarts of that canned as well. I also want to do 25 pounds of organic potatoes and the store has wild caught fresh Keta salmon on sale for $2.49 a pound so want to get about 3 of those to can. I also want to do a batch of pickles.

I picked up some pears at $1 a pound. I am not probably going to can pears this year, but I did want to enjoy them while they are in season and less expensive. Maybe after I get everything done this weekend I will have a different opinion on canning some. We'll see. I am definitely planting pear trees when we move. Then we can at least be assured of good organic pears eventually.

I've gotten my files from the big box store. Now I just need to update them and I can do a payday report for last week. I'm behind, but nothing is urgent at the moment. If the computer was going to go belly up, now was a good time of the pay cycle to do it.

    I have to say that your daughter did everything she was supposed to and it will be up to the teacher to account for HER whereabouts. I am so anti-helicopter parenting, but there is a point where you have to step in. Great job standing up for your DD.

    I am going through a similar issue. Believe me as a former high school teacher and now owning a tutoring center in the town I live in, the last thing I want to do is "make waves". However, there are instances where it is important to step in. My son's history teacher kept saying she wasn't getting his homework. I took his side for the fact he was getting all A's and B+ in every class but hers and he loves history. She kept saying he wasn't doing (or turning in) his homework. He was getting a D (He has never had below a B in any class). After the third time, I had him start making copies of his homework before turning it in. Now I have proof to back him up when I meet with her and the assistant principal next week. Glad you are standing up for your daughter and best of luck on a positive outcome!

    I am sorry this teacher stood up your daughter. Unfortunately this teacher makes the profession look bad.
