Ouch. I totally understand where you're coming from. I have done my share of campaigning for my kids' teacher assignments. But I'm going back to school to become a teacher and I worry that parents won't want me to teach their kids when I'm brand new!


If I am not mistaken, there is a (gasp!) missing apostrophe in your post. As for class assignments, we won't get them until mid-summer. Sorry about Steph's class.


It's not her brand-new-ness that worries me -- I just wondered why they would give an inexperienced teacher such known trouble-makers. BUT...I have since found out that she's not inexperienced. She's taught for several years already, just not here. AND a friend's daughter had her as a tutor and loved her. So that's promising....


On school issues: I have only once complained about the placement of one of my kids. On that occasion I wrote a letter to the principle. When fall came I found that my wishes had been accommodated, much to my surprise.

On blog punctuation: spelling, punctuation and grammar take a back seat to frequency in the blogging world. You might even say that the heart of blogging is the willingness to write frequently and badly in public. So go forth and misspunctuate! (And misspell!) Just so long as you do it frequently and interestingly.


Missing apostrophe inserted -- thanks!


I never did request certain teachers and I think my children did get put in some classes to balance out the load. (a certain number of good kids to balance out the not-so-good) So many parents request that it makes it very difficult for the school to keep classes manageable and equal. That is a real shame.
