Well the State compliance review people came out. I learned that they are normal people. There was a man and a lady that came in my room. I did get a chance to talk to them and was scared to death. I hate when I think I might be put on the spot but, that did not happen. I of coarse let them know up front I was new, hoping they would go easy on me. They are there to help not stab us in the back. I had run ideas by them that I was thinking about. They made suggestion to make them better or let me know it was good and had worked. The man was from the school I graduated from. I ask him about my cosmetology teacher and how I wish I would have listen to her and not waited to become a teacher. He is suppose to try and find out where she is, if she is still alive, and let me know. My students get upset with me because I will not let them loose in the lab. I tell them “one day you will thank me”. Their response is that is what you keep telling us. How I hope I get the opportunity to tell my teacher thank you!!
I did have a student come in on Tuesday, which was in my class last year. One of the students that hated the class last year. Well, she said, “I cannot believe I dropped this class. I was told that you are teaching them and making them learn. I wish I would have stayed now”. My student may complain that they have to do it my way but it sounds like they really deep down appreciate it. For now that is close enough to thank you J
