This Worries Me

One of the teachers I work with has now signed off two separate emails with, “thanks for any help or advise you can give.”

I gave her the benefit of the doubt once…

Along the same lines… when I asked another teacher if she could email me her class roster in a spreadsheet rather than giving me a paper copy (seriously, what good is a paper copy anymore?) she replied, “you’re asking too much.”

My brother just sent me an email with an excerpt from a blurb written about a colleague. This colleague was described as,

“An exemplary example of a financial aid counselor.”

(It’s a family affair.)
