Teh Squeaky Wheel
Looks like a warm couple of day out here, but then rain moving in towards the end of the week -- that ought to make someone happy.
Happy Monday,Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Sven!
I’ve got a busy morning on tap, followed by a day of paperwork. Whoo-hooo!
Sven -- interesting music video. I haven’t heard mention of the Boomtown Rats in a long, long time.
Happy Monday, GN!
Hi, Sven and Paddy!
Been working on paperwork since early this morning Larryville-time and completely spaced on checking-in here.
I don’t like Mondays, either.
Looks like GA may get some snow tomorrow but nothing which seems likely to affect the ATL area significantly. Nonetheless, the local “authoritahs” are puffing their chests and strutting about how freakin’ prepared they are. (Yeah, they always say that, and it’s always a big, fat lie.)
Several local school districts have announced closures for tomorrow; p*ssies. And the local media is treating this likely non-event the way SoCal media treats 0.15″ of rain: KILLER-DILLER WINTER DEATH STORM 2019!! REPENT!!
Northwest GA will probably get some snow which sticks but will no effect on The Big Game.
no effect on The Big Game.
That’s too bad. Personally, I’d like to see every Superbowl played in some place like Green Bay, or Buffalo, where the winds are blowing, there’s snow on the field, and temperatures are at or near single digits. Those are conditions worthy of The Big Game. Conditions so bad that it hurts when you hit another player, when you struggle to catch even the simplest pass, and ball carriers must focus on maintaining control of the football. I want to see men with snow shovels running up and down the sidelines so the officials can tell when someone steps out-of-bounds. That is football!
Long day, dealing with a quarrelsome family. They were added to my case load a few weeks ago, after having burned bridges with the other two Ed. Specialists in the department. The mom started out fine a couple of weeks ago, but now that she isn’t getting her way, she has become a real piece of work. Their 15 year-old son can’t seem to figure out how to click on a link that I’ve sent them five or six times, yet somehow managed to download the appropriate app to his phone and access my classroom that way -- whereupon he immediately disconnected. Both mom and son want me to meet with father and son in person to show them how to click on a link. Why mom can’t do that when she gets home is beyond me. I’m not driving over an hour each way to say, “Click on that link”. I offered to do screen-sharing to show him how to do it, but that wasn’t good enough. Frankly, this kid has no business in an independent study environment.
Mom is complaining that we aren’t implementing her son’s Individualized Education Plan (IEP). My boss -- who mom refuses to talk to -- asked in what way aren’t we, so we can make sure we are providing a Free Appropriate Public Education (FAPE is a major component of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act -- IDEA). Dad then went off on a rant about public education not being free, he works hard, pays his taxes, and her comment was insulting and don’t ever say that again!
Welcome to Monday.
Ugh. And I thought my day was difficult.
