Sigh. Well, yesterday I was trying to contact one of my parents. It was a crazy day and I needed to get in contact, while teaching my class (half day kinder). I kept getting a busy signal or one of those messges that this is a number that is not in service anymore. So, I told my parnter teacher and she said she'll see what she can do. She went into the office and had the secretary call. She got the family on the first ring. Then she told my partner teacher, "what is wrong with that teacher?" Apparenlty, I was dialing 99 instead of 9 before the phone number. At my last school it was 99 and I guess I just forgot and got confused. So, does anyone else think that comment was really rude? Yes, I made a mistake, but why say in the office, where P and AP works and where students and parents could be in there and say, "what's wrong with so and so?" I already feel like a stranger at this new school.
