Yesterday was the 2nd day of this school year and the first full day. I got to school, turned on my school laptop, and I got nothing. Nada. Black screen. Yikes!!
The principal took the useless computer. The computer guys are coming in today. We're both hoping it is just the battery and not a hard drive crash! Keeping my fingers and toes crossed on this one.
In the meantime, I am using a student laptop from our traveling lab. I can't connect to any technology (my laptop is a pc, these are macbooks and I don't have an adapter) or get to my school email account. *sigh* Wonderful. Are you catching the sarcasm here?
Did I mention I had a boy throw up in my trash can? Poor kid. He didn't feel well and wanted the bathroom, but it was already in use. At least he got to the trash can. This was only the second time, in all the years I've taught, that a student has thrown up in my room. Kind of symbolic of my day, eh?
I may throw up if I am without my school computer for a couple of weeks or months.
And what will Day 3 bring? Stay tuned.
