Open House, Are You Insane??????

I am in panic mode, yet again!  We found out today that our district has decided to have Pre-K to 2 open house NEXT WEDNESDAY, not even a week's notice.  Did I mention to say that I haven't even finished my classroom because life got in the way of me doing what I needed to do to get completely ready for the first time in my career?  Oh wait, did you also know that there is this little storm sort of heading my way on Monday?  I know teachers need to be flexible, but personally, I think it is getting out of hand.  Not only do we not get the respect we deserve from society, but now our "colleagues" who have left the classroom to work in the glass buildings really think we can get our open house presentations ready in less than 4 days.  Another side note, do we also not have lives that include doctor's appointments, transporting our own kids, and all the other stuff us super teachers put on our backs?  I think you get my drift here, so I will end this little rant with these words:  I Love My Job <3


  1. I can relate. We just found out today, Thursday, that our open house will be on Monday. NOT READY!
    Good luck!

    First Grade is Fantabulous!

  2. I hear ya! I have been around school all summer working in my room, so I knew this, but this year our back to school night is the night after the first day of school. Surprise!! Hardly anyone knows and they won't until the come back for prep week on Monday.

  3. We had meeting all 3 "paid" days before school started. grrr. This bothers me because they just assume we'll spend our own time being ready. Also, after the 3 days of meetings school started on Monday & we had Back to School night Tuesday. I feel your pain!!! On a separate note- my Houghton Mifflin posters are laminated & up for Theme 1 (I had them enlarged to poster size). Thanks again!!

  4. You know what, I never thought of enlarging them to poster size!!!! I am so glad you have a little part of me in your classroom. At least your open house is over and now you can get down to the nitty gritty with your little ones. When we left today, we had to cover our computers with plastic bags just in case the hurricane hits. So now if we don't have school on Monday, I lose another day to prepare for open house... I just want to teach! UGHHHH


Show me some love.......
