Take your time on the QOTD.....I purposefully made sure to save some of these really thinking questions for the end of the week. It is good to think!!!!Good Wednesday morning everyone.
Report got written yesterday. We were so happy to finish it. Now to proof read it.
I have a little problem at school. I have several students who parents will email guidance or me about a minor problem their child is having. I feel that these are juniors and seniors in high school who are taking a college level course and they should be able to email or talk to me. What do you guys feel about this?
Teacher opinion here. Juniors and Seniors taking college credits SHOULD be responsible enough to take care of this on their own. Parents of Juniors and Seniors generally ARE NOT READY to allow the students to take this responsibility.
I would recommend that you go ahead and answer the questions with a little side note of your wishes that in the future that these conversations/questions are directed from the students. And then I would perhaps place these expectations clearly in the literature/guidelines that is provided to these students/families when signing up for these opportunities. Clear expectations that you can reference can be very helpful. Just my oppinion.
I have to think about the qotd. I can't think of one thing that made me decide I wanted to lose weight except for getting on a scale one morning and not liking the number on it.
We have a delayed opening for the students so we can do some professional development. It will not be a fun day. We want to set up websites for each department but the person who runs the school website is in the math department and he feels that we are taking his job away from him. It should be fun.
Hope everyone is doing well. We will be joining threads with Team Mickey in a couple of days.
Have a happy and healthy day.
Thank you for sharing. We all have different things that have given us that push and being able to identify and share this shows to me that you are well on yuor way to success. You have an anchor!!!My bump was when my dad became ill and I realised that this man who I loved more than anything wasnt always going to be here and there was nothing I could do to change that but what I could do was make every moment count and to give him what he always gave me- my love and my time! I have a very spread out family and I want to be around as much as possible for as long as possible so I think I owe it to them to take care of myself. My dad took great care of himself everyday by just being moderate. He didnt know the meaning of the word diet but he didnt eat junk either Fresh food, home-cooked, moderate exercise, loved to laugh, married his best friend (they celebrated 55yr s 2wks befored he died and he sent me to get flowers) and always did a good turn when he could! Can you tell he was/is my hero He was a true gentleman and I miss him but I will go crunch a carrot now whle I dry my tears and make a renewed effort to be healthy so that I can see my kids grow and have families of their own
Sometimes I need to be reminded why I started taking steps to be healthy and why its so important to me so thanks for todays question (even though you made me cry I wont hold it against you
Sorry I made you cry. Thank you for not holding it against me! BUt what inspiration.
No I don't think that you killed the thread.....it has been quite slow all together this week. We should see a few more come along soon.....I hope.
Thanks Lisa. It has been a challenging week for the Donalds. We seem to few lately and those that are here have been facing challenges along the way.Looks like several folks on TEAM DONALD could use some extra Great job on hanging tough and sticking with us even when times are tough!
Christopher, great job coaching this week! You've come up with a great and unique twist on the QOTD and that is not always easy to do. I commend you!
I'm looking forward to the merge on Friday! See you all soon!
I had some fun putting together the questions this week. By week 12 we have shared so much with each other that I knew I had to approach things from a different angle.
Looking forward to meeting some new folks next week when we merge. So what do you get when you cross a Mouse with a Duck?
