Grrr!! It's vacation and parents still won't leave me alone. I checked my email today and one of my parents sent me a message complaining about how her daughter hadn't known there would be a vocabulary quiz on Tuesday and how she hoped I'd keep that in mind when I graded the papers. Which, first of all, is a complete lie. I stood in front of the class on Monday and told them all, "Please remember, there is vocab. quiz tomorrow. Just because it is the day before break, doesn't mean our traditional Tuesday vocab. quiz is going to be canceled. Make sure you take time to review tonight." Not to mention, the quiz was listed on our website too -- so I don't know how the daughter can claim she didn't know. I just get so tired of complaining parents sometimes. Especially right now -- we're currently on break -- so, why can't parents give me a break???
