Well...guess what, Shelby got THAT teacher. Out of four teachers, she got her. I cleared up the rolling book bag delimma immediately. I told her if I needed a doctors note I would get one, but that carrying that book bag on her back was too much for her back to carry. I told her she will have a rolling book bag. You should see the huge heavy books they have nowadays in the fourth grade!!!

Other than that little scrape, she got a lot of nice kids in her class, a lot of good kids she already knows, and she didn't get the little snot nosed brat kid, miss two face prissy pants, from last year in her class, so that was good.

I did inquire about her new teacher from her second grade teacher, she said a lot of the teachers that teach here want their kids in her class, that she is a really good teacher. I told Shelby she would be fine, to give her a chance. She may turn out to be a real nice teacher.

These rolling bags must be relatively new.. I
haven't taught for a couple of years now.. In the
secondary level we did not even allow the students
to carry their back packs.. they had to leave
them immediately in their locker .. a safety
measure after Columbi

Going into eighth grade everyone said don't get Mr. Rhinestien for English. Guess what? I got Mr. Rhinestien for English and just decided that I was going to give him a fair shot. He turned out to be one of the best teachers I ever had. Not that I ever mastered the English language mind you but, it was a good year.

And some schools in areas say...clear book bags, for all kids, they don't sneak anything into the schools....After all the school shootings in parts of USA, schools have had to lay down some stricter school rules, high schools becoming like prisons, kids can't make any stupid silly remarks even....and we all know kids, and what comes out of their mouths. Times are certainly changing...and why so many are going to HOME SCHOOLING.......a lot less I think that in most schools, school boards should definitely test some of the teachers they hire, as some must have trained in a mental facility, just my reflections on some around and about our areas.

our school is really small in fact three towns have joined to make one school district, so we don't have a lot of those safety issues. i can't imagine sending my children off to school where there are guns gangs etc.... very scary and very sad.
