    DoubleTrouble, I don't have the poem, but I'll add my own two cents:

    You know it's getting close to the end of the school year when...the kids won't stop talking! =)

    So the end of the school year starts with the 1st day of school??? :confused:









    O'k....More seriously.....

    We made a big deal of the State Tests because that's what the State makes a big deal of. Now I've got 3 weeks to deal with "we took the test and we took it seriously, we're done......what more is there?"

    Huh? Are you being sarcastic? Or just trying to be funny?

    I don't think she was being rude. She was joking about the school year ending on the first day because of a chatty class.

    As a teacher, you know it is the end of school when there seems to be more interruption activities than teaching time. (fieldtrips, special guests, school-wide activities, visitors viewing the program for next year, plays, etc.)

    I agree with Jday, I don't think she was trying to be rude I think she was attempting humor with comparing the chattiness of the kids at two different times of year.

    I've read many of her posts before. She tends to be very sarcastic and it's really uncalled for. Just my opinion!

    I don't know the poem but I'll put in my two cents!!!
    You know it's the end of the school year when your Superintendent finally compliments you on the job you've done with your students!!!

    When the teacher barely makes it to school on time and is out the door and on the way home before the buses leave.

    Whoa, I can't even see how you could take her post any other way other than a joke. calm down there, just my opinion.

    My kids will not be quiet so I know it is the end of the year. Also, they have started to just not care about work unfortunately.

    I'm very late in getting back to this. I apologize for not spoon feeding you.


    Yes, I was being BOTH sarcastic and humorous. I am sorry that you took it as being serious and being rude.
