My third granddog
Thanksgiving week

Funny (to me) teacher fail

I got up at 5 a.m., met my students in Raleigh at the door of my classroom beginning at 7 sharp. Taught all day. Participated in a 45-minute parent meeting during my only planning period. Graded late work all evening so kids will know where they stand approaching Thanksgiving. What could possibly be wrong after this effort today?

I just graded myself past the late work threshold into “missing work” land. Wrote a detailed note in Google Classroom to a child that “nothing was submitted and he should refer back to the instructions.” Yes, I reiterated all of them. Then five minutes later I apologized, asked him to follow those instructions in the future, and told him I am looking forward to reading his research once he does any... 

There may be a way I could have covered my tracks, but I left everything so he could see how late I stay up hoping he does his work.
