This image really makes me want to plan a Spring Break trip to Seattle or Portland- the PNW is calling our name! One month and one day til break.
It was a total clusterduck.Not even kidding. Never having another meeting the day after a time change ever again.
I had a new admin sitting in, who didn’t catch a major mistake I made, and my boss caught it later in the day- essentially, I forgot to carry over the student’s resource ELA course. And since IEPs are legally binding documents, he would have had them removed from his schedule due to my mistake.
But like I said, my boss caught it. So I spent the entire day calling all three of his parents’ contact numbers, trying to reach them to fix it.
I finally succeeded at 7PM.
Texted boss to let her know and apologize again. And got the sweetest reply.
"It’s okay, just glad you reached the parents. Don’t worry, you’re still learning our system. You’re doing great!"
Having a great boss makes the job so much better.

I’m on my feet, I’m on the floor, I’m good to go. Now all I need is just to hear a song I know. I wanna always feel like part of this was mine. I wanna fall in love tonight.
I am going to just keep reblogging this thing forever.
This is my favorite image on the entire internet.
Just went to lay down at midnight on Friday. As soon as my head hit the pillow, I remembered the IEP meeting I have scheduled for Monday morning.
The IEP itself is done, but I forgot to send out the mandatory second written meeting notice. And with the system down, I can’t do it now or even access the parents’ contact info until probably Sunday night if I’m lucky.
Without that document, if the parent is a no-show, I have to reschedule the meeting, and there are like 2 days in the next two months where that is even remotely possible- and they’re not in the 30-day window as required by law.
So screwed if this parent doesn’t show. And it’s my fault.
- Saw Panda! show on Tuesday, went to Yelp happy hour event on Wednesday, saw the Jabbawockeez show Thursday, and got a mani today, and have a cardio workout scheduled at SurfSet tomorrow morning- all for free!
- Ordered some classroom supplies and CCSS references with campus Special Education Dept funds earlier today
- Let my kids listen to music while doing an independent writing activity in class this afternoon- it was a nice, laid back day
- The Encore system my district uses for SpEd paperwork is down for maintenance all weekend so I have to do something other than work on IEPs for once.
this is the best line i’ve ever read
