I'm trying hard to understand why a technology school doesn't make more/better use of technology to communicate with parents. 

Just because I work from home doesn't mean I don't work or that I can take 15 minutes to deal with some random issue at any given minute. It simply means I don't have to get all dolled up and drive in to an office every morning.  I still have phone calls coming in, production numbers to meet, meetings to attend, etc.  My day is no less busy just because I'm in my basement rather than a cubicle.  Now, on the flip side, I totally understand that teachers aren't generally able to make their "downtime" coincide with my breaks or lunch in order to talk.

That's where email comes in so handy!!  Why do I get a call from my son in the office - complete with the office staff breaking in and talking to/over him?  Why not an email telling me "hey your kid did this, fix it".  That way, I can deal with the issue when I get off and my child is home ... and I'll even email them back to tell them what was done!

Man I'm glad it's Friday ... oh wait ... I have to work tomorrow too!

hmm ... what's this do?

ok ... so I'm going to try out this blogging thing.  Late to the game, yeah ... it's ok.  I'll probably have quite a few rants on here ... maybe some encouragement.  Hopefully more of the latter!
