Not my own psycho parents. That's for another blog day.
Just kidding. My mother definitely is NOT psycho. She has her issues, but she's not psycho.
Even in the virtual world, teachers have to deal with psycho parents on occasion.
We are three weeks into the fall semester in my virtual teaching job, and I had a parent call me tonight. I'm still not sure exactly what she called FOR.....
Her daughter got a late start in the class no one told her she was going to need books and where is she supposed to get them you can't even afford the library these days because who can afford late fees and why did her school just sign her up for this course and then not tell her anything she is at a real disadvantage here but she loves to read and she basically has to teach herself because teachers these days just don't care and the principal doesn't do anything about it he just says we have RESA people in observing but observing what not teaching no one does anything my daughter had to go to summer school and what are they going to teach her in summer school in eight weeks if they couldn't teach it all year last year when she was in ninth grade only one person in the whole class passed and that was only by one or two points and everybody else failed and she's always had a problem with math ever since sixth grade you would think there would have been one teacher in all that time who cared but no and I'm trying to get my daughter graduated from high school early in three years because I work down at Hartsfield-Jackson airport from nine thirty in the morning to seven o'clock at night but tonight I had a day off and I can't ever get in touch with anybody at her school to tell me what's going on but she's smart and she started late but she got caught up and I got this email telling me if she doesn't get the work turned in by Friday she won't get credit for it and she gets an assignment every week and she gets it done but it's just very unorganized how the people at her school do stuff and people are just trying to make ends meet and I took her to Sylvan Learning Center and she didn't have any trouble there, she doesn't have a problem learning, but who can afford sixty five dollars an hour never mind how much it costs just to get her there and she does her work thank you for listening to me bye.
