Today, the teacher met with the school’s principal and business manager for what was supposed to be a final court meeting.
It was a good thing Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum were left back at base camp. Though it is always fun to see them, weeble-wobbling down a hallway.
But what am I saying? The small-stuffy-room meetings had no room for me either! I have gotten my information downstream…
But, I’m such a discerning listener! This is what I’ve learned 🙂
So, the judge meets with each side individually to hammer out details. The other side has to wait outside the room. Good thing the teacher brought snacks and a friend to chat with for almost 3 hours!
The teacher and the school are trying to come up with something that would sound dignified for all those involved. This is important in a settlement, especially for the party that needs to save face the most (that’s what settlements are all about).
But I say,
No matter how much lipstick you put on a pig…
How much rouge you put on a corpse…
Pigs will always be pigs. However, death with some make-up can make it seem more pleasant for onlookers…but, it’s still…dead.
Both sides will translate something into English and then have to agree on a translation. So, there is, yet ANOTHER court date: April 15th.
Anyway, **!!! I heard that the teacher is double-checking her email list. If you have updated your email recently and / or as a supporting parent / student / teacher are interested in being included on the teacher’s updated list of supporting parent / student / teachers, don’t hesitate to be included!!
You can send your email address here whenever you write a comment (you can just write a short comment, that I won’t post if you don’t want). Your email will be anonymous to the public, but I can see it. I will pass it on to her! I’m sure she is smart enough to BCC you in mass emails.So, I wonder if this has been meaningful to the teacher? Was the whole process the thing that was meaningful–3.5 years of dealing with these people/multi-celled organisms? Or does it all come down to one final moment, one settlement, one piece of paper?
In the words of LL Cool J: “Don’t call it a comeback, I’ve been here for years.” 🙂
