Long week this past week--teaching is more about juggling demands from the district and parents than teaching. Teaching is the fun part. It's the easy part.
I knew parents would be a pain, but I had no idea of the depths of their lack of accountability. Some are positively amazing. Others are so enabling of their children's disability that it's mind-boggling. If they knew how much we love their kids, they'd be blown away--but I'm not going to do the home work that is required for their child's success. Responsibility.
