Euclidean what?

I subbed for a teacher at Newnan High School today -- Euclidean Geometry. I am always reminded about how much I DON'T remember from high school when I sub in these classes. Sigh.

Keri Lynn was in the first block class. The whole day went as smooth as silk. Easiest day I've ever had subbing. They did review worksheets, textbook work and two additional worksheets. "Busy work," Keri Lynn called it when I wrote the assignment on the board. What surprised me the most was that each of the classes broke up into groups and worked diligently on their assignments the whole class period. I was shocked! Usually I have to go around shushing and cajoling and often threatening. By the end of a class period, I've got riddles ready to keep the wolves at bay before they head out the door. None of that was needed today!

I wrote a note to the teacher stating how well everyone did, and put in a special note about how wonderful a certain Keri Lynn J. is in first block. : )

Tonight, right after dinner, Keith and I will go for our third meeting with Hal, our financial counselor through Crown Ministries. We've been needing help in this area for quite some time now, and at last we bit the bullet and started the very long road to financial recovery.

Now it's time to go make dinner before I run out of time!

Thank you for your comment.

I am going to confront her, though. I talked to the pastor and he thinks it needs to be done. This is his 4th complaint about her in 2 weeks, he usually gets one a month.
It really has little to do with homeschooling, and everything to do with not being judgemental to anyone, much less to your Christian brothers and sisters at a time that they were hurting.
She does very weird things, like telling our pastor he takes too much food at our potlucks and is too fat. Told my husband he is fat in front of people. Yelled at a young mom in front of the entire potluck to get down and clean up the food that her baby was dropping before they were even done eating.
The list just goes on and on and on.
It makes me wonder how she got such amazing and wonderful children. I'm guessing she just is getting bad in her old age, perhaps.

Hi...I found your site through comments you made on Qtpies7. I wanted to let you know that you are by far not the only ones having financial difficulty and needing help.

God Bless - will pray for you!
