Mum likes reading, decorating, shopping with the girls, and Starbucks. She also feels funny writing in the 3rd person. Papa (also known as Sparky) is currently looking at me with a blank stare having asked him to add something about himself to the blog. (Now he wants to say something) The only thing he loves more in life than music and Coke is his wife and kids. (Awww...) :) Little Lotte is a genius on the computer and makes me fall over laughing every day with her quick wit. She loves computers and animals. Sweet Pea abandoned her family and moved to Phoenix for work and is now married as of 2/28/06. She is beautiful and smart and the most nurturing person I know. She gave me the greatest gift ever when she made me a grandmother. I am the proud Mum Mum to Andrew Christopher. There are no words to describe the joy of having a grandson!

You WIN!!!!

Yep! You win a free week of negative posts!

I know you are sooo excited, right? Welcome to Hormone Hell - grab a cup of prozac and sit and enjoy!

So today we have the P.E. teacher who gets on the announcements to inform the kids of a VERY good thing - JUMP ROPE FOR HEART. And he explains the benefits, blah, blah, blah. And he ends the thing with:

And if you are the winning class overall - you will earn a.....

(drumroll, please!)

Well... howsabout we let you guess? Circle the letter of the response you think he gave:

a) a free jump rope for each child in the class
b) a an extra time of P.E. where kids can fly kites
c) dump a bucket of manure over his head.

CLUE: The answer does NOT correlate with common sense!

Yes, folk. He let the kids know that the winning classroom gets to cover him with cow shit! WHooo hooooo! Warms your heart, don't it??!!

This may be the start of the straw the breaks this girl's back.

When did we begin to not use common sense in my district? This is from the South Park - Simpsons world of let's disrespect authority and humilate them every chance we get. I hate it, I hate it, I hate it.

So now when I have children in class who want to write about poop and other bathroom features (and I DO get those kids - gee, wonder why???) and I tell them how that is inappropriate for school - will they be getting mixed signals? Will they think it's funny to throw inappropriate things at people? Come on! They were just playing around when they threw piss at the passing car! It was funny! Haha!

Am I old and bitter or is this really an acceptable form of reward for a job well done? Shouldn't the reward in some small way relate to what the goal was? Shaking head.....

I'm just shooting in the dark here, but, does the PE teacher by any chance have some kind of fetish?

Ha, to Mr. Hoven.

When I read the first part of this post, I thought we were getting a week free of negative posts. I thought, "Where is the fun in that?"

Oh my! I can hardly believe what I am reading! But, yes, I can. I wonder if he really plans to carry through on his promise?

I am new here so are you a teacher the administrator? I cannot imagine the stress this must put on people who have to work with this kind of ignorance.

IR, I just read further. I feel your pain. I am a retired teacher and believe me, I feel your pain!

Thank you for your kind words on my blog. Drop in any time!
