    I could really use a Disney show on the Travel Channel about right now.
    Even if it's one I've already seen 50 times.

    My formal observation, I have to turn in lesson plans for it. I have to know when it is. I had an informal one, where the administrator came in unannounced about 2 months ago. I did well

    Oh, now, freedom is overrated. They could just do an ankle monitor.


    No news for her. She knew for 3 years. Son now doing a healthy show, not my Mommas cooking
    Nice of her to share with the rest of us as we made Paulas, deluxe buttered butter appetizers.

    Yeah, the school would have it back, with a nasty lecture, or I would find a new school.

    The administration matches what they observed to what was in the lesson plan book afterward observation. Every Friday lesson plan book is turned into principal in afternoon for review. Lesson plans must be 2 weeks out.

    They had problems with a few. Family emergency or major illness, found several that were out for weeks didn't have lesson plans at all or more than a day or two. Now everything is spot checked once a week.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Yeah, I see faults with that. I try to plan two weeks out but it ALWAYS changes because either I don't get to something one day, or the students don't understand something and have to do more lessons/reviews for them.

    I understand turning in a year long rough plan of lessons and for your first 3 yrs turning in plans. But I feel like you should still have to turn in an official lesson plan for a formal observation then an informal observation. As a teacher, I'd like to be prepared with notice at least for one observation.

    Interesting huh? And we wonder why the US kids are falling behind other modern countries in reading, writing and math. I heard it on the radio talk show this morning. They did not have the funding answers if it was a grant or manufacture supplied or budgeted tax dollars. The electric monitors are worn on the wrist and count heartbeats, they detect motion and will even track students sleeping schedules. All to fight obesity.
    Password needed to gain access by students and educators.

    The ACLU is now involved. Concerns of how long info will be stored, if it will pass from school to school. What will secondary uses, insurance companies, parental consent. What if data points to hyperactive tendencies, will educators have data to label special ed? ACLU does not believe schools have the right to a persons biological indicators.

    So if Johnny looks sleepy, they could scan his wrist and see when you put Johnny to bed last night. Wow!

    I completely understand the teachers objections. This was in place long before I was ever on the school board. The "official" response to being able to prepare for observation is, 'an educator should always be prepared if they are being observed or not.'

    One of our teachers was upset because her observation was while she was showing 101 Dalmatians. She came back from the restroom, coffee cup in hand a tad shocked that a chunk of her observation time had already ticked away. (note, there was a teachers aide in the room.)

    I am over halfway with getting inventory straightened out. And only have a few long, long invoices to enter to be fully caught up and ahead of the power curve.

    DD isn't feeling well, she got thru school today, but looks kind of pale and said she feels nauseated. ick. Poor thing.

    Poor thing. Take care of her from a reasonable distance, that is all you need is to get it too.
