Sometimes working for a private school is frustrating! A teacher called in today – not sick mind you – just tired because she was up until 2 am with a family emergency. Teachers call in all the time where I work for no good reason. This one, I am on the fence about. However, at most schools this wouldn’t be a problem – but where I work there are no substitutes. So today Ms. Bennet was told to go into that class and I worked alone! This frustrated both of us because we had an activity planned today that required both of us being in the room. Of course we couldn’t follow the posted lesson plan and do the activity because Ms. Bennet wasn’t with me!
I couldn’t comprehend why our director, Ms. Lezze-Faire, couldn’t sub for the day and go in the other classroom. I guess she was just too busy – playing computer games from what I saw the two times I walked by her office. I suppose with the school loosing money and enrollment going down this is exactly what she should be doing! What a great example we have to follow! You all should be so blessed.
So, while Ms. Bennet was busy in another room and Ms. Lezze-Faire busy with her computer games, I was forced to divert from my lessons and have a fun free play Tuesday while I caught up with all the odds and ends that had been left undone. In the end my art is hung up and the room is decorated and looks good for Friday’s valentine party. The children are getting excited and so am I. Hopefully all the teachers can manage to show up.
