Random Tid Bits

  1. This year and last we didn't have assistants because class sizes are too small for one. I do fine without one, but I do like having one just to give feedback on grading. My opinion isn't going to be the same as someone else's opinion. Often times I'd look at what they would give them, and what I would give them, and average the two. I do give the students certain criteria for what I want, and don't want. That helps with the grading process too.

    There's a teacher here that basically gets the owner's wife to comply to be his assistant every flipping week. We're told not to show favoritism in the classroom, but I feel like there's some favoritism going on with him for sure. Actually I think he's just milking her, and she's just unable to say, "No." because she's too nice.

    So being the sneaky punk that I am I decided to play her this week as well. I sent her an email: Can you help me for 1/2 a day tomorrow? I won't have a spot to do lecture because there's Portfolio Judging going on in the lecture hall. I really need someone to help with a critique that will last quite a bit of time.

    I don't really need her to help me. I just want to see how the person that can never say, "No!" will say no. This is my opportunity to point out what everyone else is seeing - her helping him. She replied with, "I'm sorry so and so asked me to help him already. I really would have loved to of helped out." I replied back with, "Oh man so and so always seems to get your help. :)" The whole office is in anticipation of what she will say. They were cracking up when I told them. I love harmless jokes, poking fun, or putting people on the spot as long as it doesn't hurt anyone.

  2. Another health insurance company bailed on the Affordable Care Act in Nebraska. I'm screwed! I'm even more screwed when it changes with not covering even more things in 2020. That is - if that passes.

  3. Isaak insists on sleeping in really hot pjs when it really hot outside. He doesn't do this when it's winter time. Then he wants to sleep in undies. By the way Isaak is really looking ultra long! He'll be 9 next week. His features are so little, except for his eyes, but his body is so dang tall!

  4. I'm so ready for the school year to end at this point. The classes I had were great this year! I just feel like the students - end of school blues. 

  5. I wrote a post about how our city is so dang divided. Here's a map in regards to voting for the mayor this week:

I am ready for the end of the school year too, but it will be so bittersweet since it's Mariah's final year of high school. We are so excited and sad at the same time.

I pray that wreck of a health care bill doesn't pass. I worry that I will get kicked off my infusions that I receive every 8 weeks. I certainly don't have the $5,000 every 8 weeks to pay for them out of pocket :(

I think everyone is ready for summer break these days. That's funny about putting that person on the spot. Sometimes it just needs to be done.
