As in “Peer Relations.”
Had a student transfer from another teacher’s Algebra class to my PreAlgebra class on Monday. Tuesday I got an I/M from the previous teacher asking me to send him over with his Algebra book because she needs it back. It was an B day so I didn’t see him, so of course I didn’t send him. This morning (Wed) there is a note in my box reminding to send him over as soon as I see him. Then 2nd period, the class I have him, I get an I/M saying;
“Could you send [him] over, I NEED that Algebra book.”
To which I replied “He’s on his way right now. chill.”
I got back “Seriously, you did not actually say that. }=”
That little extra at the end is a scowl. I got scowled at by a coworker over the I/M. Banner week.
Now, maybe I’m a little defensive after those notes from the custodian. Maybe it’s just been a bad week because the kids were uber-hyper because of the impending 5 day weekend (for the students). Maybe it’s just because I ran out of Diet Coke halfway through the day. I dunno.
I just know that I’m really happy that it’s a long weekend……
