I don't know, maybe a little oxygen deprivation will derail that twitch I've now got in my right eye. Thank you for the virtual hug Bouncy!
Broc, I was going to hold off calling a meeting like that, but another email from the teacher consultant (TC) has made me change my mind. See above regarding eye twitch.
Communication with her just gets bizarre. Twice this week Ava has brought home study guides the night before a test. No child should be studying just the night before. She did not seem to know her science info well so I emailed the TC and asked if Ava could take the test on Monday instead of Friday. She emails me back, no problem, all arranged. Ava comes home on Friday and says she was given the test anyway. I thought, no big deal, it slipped through the cracks, I'll just make sure she gets to retake it on Monday. With the appropriate (note, not EXTRA time to study, just APPROPRIATE) time to study, she gets an A on most tests. Sent an email about that, then the TC acts as if she does not remember the original agreement, even thought it's only a couple of messages down in the email thread!
I don't know if she's losing it, or just tried to lie instead of admitting she made a mistake - and is really bad at lying. So, I've emailed the principal that we need to meet.
I've also been trying to set up a group meeting with her teachers for months now, and the TC just keeps dropping the ball on that as well. She finally came up with a suggestion that would only give us a half an hour with the whole group which, trust me, is not enough time. Usually an hour is not enough time. So I said thanks, but no thanks, I'll just set up meetings separately with the teachers. She asked me not to do that. She said "they" would rather meet with me as a group. And, frankly, I doubt she's telling me the truth. I think she doesn't want me meeting with the teachers separately because she's been screwing up her job of being my "go to" person!
At this rate, somebody better offer me a prescription. I don't know where to buy crack and I've tried becoming an alcoholic but I fall asleep after one glass of wine.
