Ready For It
Today, I decided to print out some letters and make a few phone calls. The computers in the cafeteria were not working (and haven't worked for a month). I then hit the teachers' work room and found all four being used. I decided to brave the airless, over crowded math office and I did find one of the two machines available. The phone was being used by another teacher doing what I wanted to do. I got out the form and started setting up my letters, but the printer would not work and I didn't know how to fix it. Not ready to give up, I hit the last room available with computers. Here I found 3 available ones but there were no chairs and I was not in the mood to stand or kneel on the ground and I just gave up.
I'm ready for the next memo:
There is a teacher of algebra students who did not notify parents that their children were failing. I think we would all agree that getting in touch with parents is a teacher's responsibility.
Who will be responsible for providing the means to get in touch with these parents?
