The South

Where tea is sweet and accents are sweeter; summer starts in April; front porches are wide and words are long; macaroni and cheese is a vegetable; pecan pie is a staple; Y’all is the only proper pronoun; chicken is fried and biscuits come with gravy; everything is darling and someone is always getting their heart blessed. -unknown

Careless mistakes on tests and homework are about to drive me insane. Notice I said careless mistakes. Example: You ask your child what it means to give off heat and he answers "radiate."

He knew it before the test, and after the test, but not during the test.

The one bright spot in all this frustration is that mom showed me some of my papers she had come across from when I was in elementary school. Boy, did I turn out just fine inspite of that work. I couldn't write well, nor could I do the math.


It gives me hope.

I know how you feel, but from a teacher standpoint! It makes it so much worse when you KNOW the child knows the right stuff. It's one of those things I have to stress all year long. Hope things get better :)
