six word saturday – parents’ evenings



As well as my usual work last week I had two three-hour parents’ consultation evenings – six hours of telling parents how wonderful/distracted/hard-working/capable/inattentive/enthusiastic (delete as appropriate) their child is.

For more Six Word Saturday participants have a look at Cateโ€™s blog, Show My Face.

  1. Lol, and here I thought the 20 minutes of listening to it was exhausting ๐Ÿ˜›

    Seriously though, there’s a reason we have teachers like you… because people like me SHOULD NOT teach a room full of brats/gifted children… delete as appropriate ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. During my teaching years, I always marvelled at how, if the student was successful, parents either credited the student’s natural ability and good work ethic, or took the credit for themselves; but student failure inevitably was blamed on the school or – guess who.

  3. Hard work- feet up time now!

  4. Yeah! It’s always nice to have those done. My report cards were due this week, and will be done by Monday – I had to extend a bit because of food poisoning last week…good enough excuse I think. ๐Ÿ™‚
    Now site back and relax. ๐Ÿ˜€

  5. We homeschool and someone posted this on facebook awhile back which I thought was really good:
    What is a homeschool mother who talks to herself? A parent-teacher conference. (It was something like that…I’m not very good at re-telling jokes.)
    Three hours is a long time! Glad you survived!

  6. Stopping by from Six Word Saturday. I don’t envy you being a teacher, but I do appreciate it! Such a hard and thankless job. Hope you have a good week!

  7. Sounds like you’ve earned your weekend. Hehehe. I could never do it…I couldn’t be a teacher. I admire those who teach!

  8. It’s bad enough your days are full, but evenings are rough on top of that.

  9. Have a nice weekend, you have earned it!

  10. Mine are in the first week of March and I spend 10-15 minutes with each teacher. Do I really have to go? I figure if there’s a real problem, the teacher will call. But I get off lucky with my 10-15 minutes. Your hours must be tedious.

Now it's your turn
