Irritated

Posted: February 16, 2012 in Uncategorized

Warning: This is my OWN personal feelings and thoughts. If you don’t agree with them that’s fine, but if you get mad at me for them.. then you need to take a deeper look into yourself.

I am real irritated right now with the High School (some of the staff members, not all.. there are some really great people working there)

I had wrote a couple emails to some of my child’s teachers. I didn’t get a response for several days. So I wrote the following on the schools facebook page

To the High School Teachers: When a parent writes you an email with a question or in one case a serious concern a reply would be nice. You can either reply to my emails or I can call the school for a teacher conference.

I don’t think what I wrote was bad, it was a polite statement.. but not long after writing it.. the post got deleted and my ability to post on this page got removed. I don’t mind the post being deleted, I was about to remove it myself, because I was asked to email the principal about it (which I did).

The one email that I wrote a teacher with no response, that was the one that concerned me the most is ↓↓

It seems things went pretty well on the Waco trip, except Anna having to be told to stop yelling, out the hotel window..


I do have one concern though.. I’m not real happy about boys and girls being in each others room at night watching movies. I know they were in the rooms from 9pm until the movies were over. I would never let a boy be in Anna’s room watching a movie or anything, because that can lead to her being in a position for her to either have to say “no” or give in to peer pressure or hormones. I honestly do not think Anna is responsible enough nor mature enough to be having sex, so I don’t want her in situations where it could happen. I do believe at this moment she would say no, but I also know.. that could all change in a moment. I’m not naive I know kids will do things even if you want them to wait, but when I send her on a school trip, I don’t want her put into that situation. The boys could all get into a room and watch movies, and the girls in another or a teacher can be in there watching movies with them. Anyways.. I just wanted to tell you my concern. On her next school trip there will have to be some promises made on the Teacher (chaperon) part, that this won’t happen. Also, I have no idea how her daddy is going to react to this when I tell him,  meaning he might make a big deal out of it.. or he may be okay with me contacting you about the concerns. 

Anyways, I do hope you have a great day.. I just need to get this concern out there or mentioned, hope you understand.

Thank you,

I did get a call from this teacher after the principal told her to call me. I felt as though the principal was mad at ME, it was a really short conversation with him saying “well everyone has their own perception of things and I will have her call you”. Not sure why he was upset with me, its my JOB to look after my kids, period! The teacher called a few minutes later.
She basically said.. I told them to go to their own rooms, I was tired, went to bed, I’m not a babysitter.
I told her she need a better plan than that, because its not okay for boy and girl teens to be in hotel rooms together with no adult. I also reiterated some things I said in the email she didn’t respond to.
With all the conversations (including talking to two other high school teachers, but on a less serious note) I was very respectful and polite. I don’t really understand why the principal was upset with me, and has made it were I can’t post stuff on the school’s facebook page.


I know overall its not that big of a deal.. (facebook thing). They need to realize I’m an easy one to deal with. I could always step aside and let some others tear into them. I’m just irritated.. I’ll get over it.
