On the first day back, I was at school at 8:30 a.m. for my Breakfast Club volunteer work, followed by a full day of teaching, hosting an outside speaker for our lunch time GSA meeting and ending with my after-school supervision at the bus loading area. Whew!
The latter was a challenge due to a dump of wet snow.... irresistible snowball throwing weather for all the goofy boys!
Today is another busy day as I'm heading to a 7:30 a.m. diversity breakfast hosted by a local LGBTQ organization. Our school division purchased a table of tickets and as the Gay Poster Boy, I always get invited.
After breakfast, a full day of teaching will be followed by Parent's Night for which I am, to put it mildly, ill-prepared. I barely know the names of some of my students especially from my huge grade 9 class with their shrieking little voices, let alone a solid mark.
But I am a veteran of over forty Parents' Nights so I am confident it will go well. I'll focus on the students' behaviour, learning skills and attitude and put off the pushy, marks-obsessed parents.
My professionalism, charm and charisma will win the day! lol
I am also very much looking forward to meeting my youngest crop of Hot Daddies ever, some as young as their mid-thirties.
However, I constantly worry about this Parent's Night scenario: a sexy Daddy shows up for an interview, lumpy little wife in tow, and he turns out to be someone I hooked up with. Awkward!
