blast from my past

I was just cleaning out a purse that I haven't used since winter, and I found this note inside, dated January '05:

Miss M,
Sorry, for the absenty of (student's name) but I felt indisposed.

(mom's name)

Ah, memories. (And no, this wasn't Frequent Absentee Girl. Her mom never sent notes.)

I love those little reminders that pop up in random places. Just goes to show how all-consuming our work is.

My favorite parent note was from one mom, who wrote as if she were transcribing what she said: "Ay, teacher, I mean, I just don't know what to do about my son, you know?..."
