The vacationer is back today. We did an entire chapter over the Legislative Branch while she was on vacation over 2 weeks. I did not scan and send the book or homework while she was gone. Today we are working on a review sheet for the test tomorrow. 30 mins into class she hasn't asked me for anything.

I'm interested to see how this will play out.

Do you have a hard copy of the notes you can give me? I only took them one day (I give a power point copy with like 1 sentence deleted per slide- they get a grade for doing them and turning them in).

Me- no.

Ugh, that's so unfair...

Email we received today- Student XYZ's Family is concerned that her updating Facebook during school is a distraction to her education. They have requested for her phone to be taken away and sent to the AP Office when she is using it during the school day. They were informed of our cell phone policy.

If only there were a way for her parents to handle this situation, but hey, I'll get it.

I'm not a teacher, but have been around them all my life. You poor people are incessantly blamed for the shortcomings of parents.

I don't even think we're blamed anymore because we're just expected to be their parents most of the time.

+1, and oddly enough, had a kid ask me Tuesday if he could order pizza and have it delivered to study hall. He was really angry I said no.

But not to worry, the librarian said they could during finals. And then looked at me and frowned.

Apparently Facebook is still big with kids in Lincoln. I've heard it referenced at least a dozen times today.

I admit I'm a fairly casual follower of HS football. (Basically keep up on Sterling and the couple hometown teams where I live now).

Looking at the schedule for this week, real possibility that Morris, Geneseo and Rochelle all miss the playoffs. That has to be pretty damn rare.

How do we live in a society that reconcile the growing idea that 16 year olds should be allowed to vote, yet HS seniors need to be prompted up to 2 times to do classwork? Like, you know, the other 13 years they've been in school at that point?

I was surprised too. My experience here has certainly been interesting as this is probably the first true "basketball first" type school I've worked at.

For some extremely strange reason, tucking your sweatpants into your socks is a thing here. Really odd.

Apparently, according to the kid I asked, the sweatpants thing is to "help wrestlers cut weight during the day".

Odd, that as a 10 year wrestler and a coach of the sport for 7 years, this is the first I've heard of this phenomenon.

i've heard of that...from the article you linked: "Where did this come from? Why are students doing this? Senior Chase Tyeryar had the answers, “It really started because of wrestling. The wrestlers would tuck their sweatpants into their socks so that they can sweat more and drop weight.” He continued with, “I guess the trend spread from there.”

Past three days we've been working on an informational pamphlet project over a Cabinet department of their choosing. Project is due today.

Mr Idiot can you help me find my project, I don't know where I saved it.

What did you save it as?

I don't know.

Do you know if you saved it to the computer or under your profile?

I don't know.

Well then, I can't help you.

But, you're an adult.

Yes, but I'm not a magician.

Well, thanks for nothing I guess.
