A Teacher's Day

The day in the life of an inner city large urban school district teacher after the high stakes testing ends and there is still three more months left before summer vacation.

Location: Chicago, Illinois, United States

I have taught school for over thirty years always in the inner city and for the most part always upper grade students. I have two children and I have been married for twenty years.

Report Card Pick-Up

Sometimes teachers get so busy during the day, they don't have time to do things they want later on. Just too tired. Wednesday was our district's parent conference day--we call it Report Card Pick-Up. I had a fairly good turnout. All of my parents, but four, showed up to get their child's report card.

It went smoothly, too. Not a single problem.

Some parents came in on Thursday, too, and again not a problem.

Everything since the ISAT is going too smoothly. Shouldn't complain. Should be glad. This has been an exceptionally great week of instruction and grantwriting.
