Good it's solved for Colin, but the "big picture" still isn't good. A teacher can have their own "individual style", yet do the proper lesson plans. Also, subs are just that, subs and unless they majored in that one specific subject or have some sort of background in it, they aren't going to be as effective as a teacher who teaches it on the year round basis. What I am saying is that you cannot expect a sub (who gets lowly pay and no benefits) to take the place of a regular tenured teacher-it's unfair to the students and to the sub herself.

I can see if they hired someone as a "temp teacher" during the teacher's leave of absence, but again, the pregnant teacher knew she was leaving and should have met with her replacement and gone over everything, including lesson plans, teaching style she had, etc. Ridiculous!

BTW, maybe most parents didn't complain because they were unaware of how bad things had gone and aren't as close to the situation as you are. One of the reasons I volunteer and work at Elena's school-I want to know what is going on and be kept informed.


It does my heart good to know that Colin has a great teacher to help him finish out the school year, but I also find it upsetting that he didn't realize that's how he should have been taught all along.


Oops! forget to mention the Southwest table set. It's working up great, and I like your idea for gradually decreasing the number of dc rows between the lace rows as you finish. Do you think you'll write it up for us when you're done?


I really like the table set. I am in awe when I see your stuff in the round because no matter how hard I try I cannot get my center hole to be that perfectly even and circular! I just have the hardest time making it look good.
