A Shrewdness of Apes

On autopilot....


You know what? Nothin' says lovin' like an evaluation in a plain brown envelope shoved into your mailbox.

For a second, I was afraid it was something disgusting. Instead, it was just monosyllabic. Makes me feel great about the untold hours I have spent pitching in during various crises.

I'm feelin' it! You may say, "Surely she's joking!"

And you know what I say: "I'm doing everything I can... and stop calling me Shirley."

How utterly demoralizing. You should print out your leadership post and put it on the faculty room fridge (or, better yet, put it in a plain brown envelope and shove it in your administrator's box! YEAH! THAT'S it!!)...

I love all my brave blogging friends. Right now, there's a post from SaintSeester and one from Heroes Not Zombies on MY staff room fridge! If you don't mind, your leadership one's going up next!!
