breathing a sigh of relief

Today I did something I knew I'd have to do eventually (because really it seems at some point or another you do) but I didn't think it would happen so soon. Grace came home on Monday with a very unsettling story/situation. I was livid (not at her). The next day a note was sent to the principal requesting a meeting with her and the teacher. Another note was sent to the teacher notifying her of the request. The meeting was set for today. I must say I was a cool customer. The teacher was pleasant enough, but she is now aware that things done and said in the classroom are coming home and I am not afraid to call her on it.
The principal said several times that the things discussed (real incidents that have occured in the classroom) were very inappropriate. She took notes, and assured me that she would take care of it. I have no doubt that she will, because (unbeknownst to her) I think she is one tough cookie.

What I really want to say is the teacher and principal were "schooled." And to think I did it with a smile on my face. VICTORY!!!!!!!!!

Hey Sarah,

A while back you had a bunch of lasagna recipes on your blog. One of them caught my attention b/c it didn't have any cottage/ricotta cheese in it. I searched for a while tonight, but couldn't remember where to look. Do you remember? I know it was in the comment section, but I didn't see a blog about Italian food....thanks!
