I'm Done!!!!!

As I was driving home from round two of parent conferences at about 7:15, Delilah was on. She was talking about her kids being out of school for parent conferences. She was going on about how tired it made her to have her kids home all day. All I could do was yell at my radio, "What the Hell?" Seriously, I worked from 6:30 am until about 7:15 pm. Kids in my district do not have the day off. We have to teach all day and then conference with every parent in the evening. I didn't know other districts are actually giving teachers time during the school day to conference.

My conferences and school day actually went really well, but seriously that is too many hours in a row in that school building. I was starting to feel like I was in my own personal prison when I was waiting between conferences. Too many hours. AND I still have to teach two more full school days.

We used to have half-days, so we'd teach in the morning and then have parent-teacher conferences from about lunchtime through dinnertime, but at least it was only one day. I've heard of other districts doing two days so that you have morning and afternoon appointments available.
