Suit was bitching today because so many math teachers took off Tuesday to avoid the Election Day staff undevelopment. About 1/3 of the department avoided the day like the plague. Instead of bitching, he should be praising us. The math department has the best attendance in the building. We come in on teaching days. Our students are important to us. We know that no learning takes place with a substitute teacher. Everyone needs a day for R & R occasionally. He should be kissing our feet for doing it when classes are not in session.
