so, i've always suspected that my teaching counter parts have visions of me sitting with my feet propped up eating bon-bons and reading Vogue.  I'm not.  I'm eating pork rinds and reading Mad magazine, but really, I digress.  This was confirmed to me in several ways when a teacher / coach tries to get me to disassemble the sports packets so the can have part or them to (i'm not sure) carry around (?) only for me to have to re-assemble them and re-file them after the season.  Hard-pass.  You get a comprehensive clearance list.  If they are missing the page you want, you'll know.  

Then another teacher wants to bring in doughnuts and wants to rattle off the kids to know if they have allergies to all the ingredients in doughnuts.  First - you can check this in the computer yourself, second i don't know off the top of my head - i generally know who has epipens in school, but even that's something i like to check and not rely on my over-taxed memory and third - please just email me a list and don't get huffy with me and assume i'm not doing something else.

You seem more like a "People" person....but I agree with your perception.

Especially since you've probably provided the list of the kiddos in that teacher's classroom who have allergies and to what...like, at the beginning of the year?

But I try to remember (like with anything....PTA board, committee work, this here job) - it is easier for folk to ask me, the knower of all knowledge, than to look it up. When I'm feeling particularly sparky, I say "You can find that information in the (email, memo, detailed list I lovingly compiled) for you.

Stay strong. We have 9 weeks left.

Yup, last week the male PE teacher asked if I could cover the locker room for homeroom attendance while the other teacher is out of the building teaching an offsite class. My response was I cannot promise I am available, lots going on on the AM, med drop off, new kids on crutches etc...he said Ok, and then put the roster in my mailbox...🤬:banghead:

I just polished off a bag of pork rinds! :)

The great thing about having an amazing health assistant is that I can totally slack and still look good - and busy!

56 more school days! (14 school days until spring break!)
