On the other hand, I HATE coming back to school the next day because, invariably, I discover that many or most of my kids were complete jackasses to the substitute and to each other. I find things missing from my desk (a dollar's worth of quarters this time). I find papers turned in with no names and no work on them. I find (usually lengthy) lists of names of people that misbehaved.
And today, I found one kid in In School Suspension.
Why can't I just come back and find one or all of the following:
- A glowing note about ALL of my students.
- Completed work with all steps and strategies shown.
- A winning Mega Jackpot lottery ticket.
