For what it's worth...

Okay so this won't apply to many of you but let me just say for the record - IF you happen to be a parent of a student in the public school system and IF you were to ever have the urge or the thought to go to a teachers house, unannounced, to "just say hi" or to chat about school related topics ---- DON'T!! Please don't. Respect the privacy and the family time of your child's teachers. Understand that when we leave school we have many other responsibilities that we have to take care of and to have a parent show up at our door -- really is unfair.
You might be surprised at the fact that there have been parents from my school (recently) who have done just this and quite frankly... it is disturbing. I guess that is part of the danger of living in the same neighborhoods that your students live in (not me but a colleague).
Seriously tho folks, really... I'm just saying...
For what it's worth...

That is the great thing about living so far from my work. I don't think anybody would drop in. I couldn't even imagine this happening. I would completely freak. There is something wrong with those people!! Thanks for sticking up for us teachers and telling everybody to not even think about doing something so dumb!! Oh by the way...you won the weight watchers giveaway over at my place!
