PANTS ON THE GROUND! PANTS ON THE GROUND! Looking like a fool with your pants on the ground! Do you remember that video from American Idol! Well, I do and that’s exactly the way I feel. This post is in regard to last night’s post about looking like a total slacker & eating sour grapes.
I was too tired to write everything I wanted to say last night, but I’m up now and I’m totally refreshed. So I can tell you that last night I felt like crying. I know, I know, you’re probably thinking when don’t I feel like crying. But, I will not even go into that. I will just tell you that I was so tired and couldn’t think straight because Open House started at 6:00 p.m. Factor in a whole day of working with 4th & 5th graders, grading papers, and trying to get the bulletin boards together, that will make anyone crazy. Don’t even mention the fact that I had to stay at school the whole time and get right back up & be there at 8:00 this morning.
I was tired but my mind was working overtime a little before, during & after Open House. I started thinking about the next Open House & my displays. In fact, I will not wait until the next Open House to start displaying my students projects. My students have a Black History Month project due next Wednesday that I will display as soon as I grade them. Not only that, but I will have them put on a mini-play for the Principal.
One thing I learned about being caught unaware, with my pants down, is that I do NOT like it. Read my lips (or my words) I. WILL. NOT. BE. CAUGHT. WITH. MY. PANTS. DOWN. AGAIN!
HERE’S TO 2011!
