Well it didn't take long. Last Friday, Principal S.T. did a "walk through" with an assistant principal. Today, the following Friday, I received this letter in my mailbox just before I left for the weekend. The letter reads as follows:
October 12, 2007
Dear Ms. Untamed,
I have scheduled an appointment for you to meet with me in my office on October 18, 2007 at 3:00 PM to discuss your lesson plan.
This conference may lead to disciplinary action. Please bring a union representative.
Cc: Mr. P.B.,Union Representative
Now, please don't hold it against if I take a few seconds to GLOAT.
I KNEW IT!!!-- WHAT DID I TELL YOU? I TOLD YOU SOOOOOOO!!!!!!!-HA HA HA--I AM THE W-O-M-A-N--- I ROCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Sorry about that, I couldn't help myself.
It's the heady power of prediction. Last weekend I wrote down every detail of last Friday's lesson.
I can't tell you how many of these meetings I have attended "with my union representative" and how frustrating and depressing they always were. Now everything is different, because I can see her coming a mile away. I know what she is going to say ahead of time. I will take incredible delight in describing every detail of the meeting on this blog and in as many other public venues as I can find. I am soooo glad I took the trouble to write everything down as soon as she came into my classroom a week ago. I can now enjoy this weekend without wasting a minute of my time thinking about her.
