Now where's my genie?

I wish...
  • that a certain math teacher hadn't interrupted my student SIX different times as he was retaking his standardized state test! (She just stood a few inches in front of him and watched him bubble in answers. Yeah.... not helpful!)
  • that tomorrow was the last day of school
  • that my classroom would de-clutter and organize itself
  • that eating vats of ice cream had no consequences
  • that I could speak Spanish and wouldn't need a translator to talk to a parent
  • that we lived closer to family and I could go to my nephew's first birthday party this weekend
  • that my seven IEPs would write themselves
  • that there was a Michaels or Joann's nearby -- I have to drive so far to get supplies for my store!
The good news is that this weekend is a three day weekend for me!

What are you wishing for today?

I heard this lyric the other day on popular radio and I thought of it again when I read this list. "Can we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shooting stars? I could really use a wish right now."

Here's hoping that some of yours come true!

Have a great time on your three day weekend!

I wish my 5yo daughter didn't have full day Kindergarten next fall!
I'm speaking more as a mother than a teacher, because I know the Kindergarten teachers probably like a full day to get all the required curriculum in. But I want my baby home for the afternoons for one more year!

I wish I had a volume turn-up button for the night of our performance next week (and for that night only!) and a large pulley attached to kids' backs so I could hoist them up and plop them back down facing the audience when they've turned around to say their lines and can't be heard at all!

PS the rats in the volkswagon remind me of Rosie, my psych 101 rat from Western! She could be sooo cute, in her less ratty moments. Brenda

I wish more parents would realize how much the words and actions that come from them affect their kids at school every day. Some of my students have had a really BAD day before they even arrive at school.....

Great post! I am enjoying your blog...
