Does your district ask you to donate to charities so you can wear jeans? We are asked to pay $5 for each Friday we wear jeans. I gladly support many charities but for some reason this irritates me. Some times we are given a free jeans day because our students score at high levels on district tests. That seems like a small reward for major achievements. Maybe it smacks of treating us like the children we teach. Must be getting grumpy in my old age. Yep, that's it. I'm officially grumpy.
