TGIF! It has been a rollercoaster week. I guess sometimes we feel all weeks are that way. This week I got a mega dose of parent conferences. As an Aide, I have VERY little contact with parents directly. This week, however, I sat on and spoke in FOUR parent/teacher conferences. Two of them was to support and give observations about a previous student. One was because I provide the modification. The last one, however, threw me for a loop. Half the complaints were about me. Although my administration backed me up and it was obvious she was frustrated with things that happened before this year, I had to at least respect that the parent requested that I be there. Now I'm sitting here with pizza delivery on the way, a wine cooler in hand and trying not to think of tomorrow's crisis. I have an entire house to spitshine and fruit flies to trap. They have taken over. Even though I've removed the original culprits, they are attracted to any moisture and I even have them by the hundreds in my bathroom. Yep, my weekend will be fun. TGIF!!!
