My previous blog sounded so positive. I'm so sad the feeling had to end so quickly.
Today I found out I screwed things up majorly with my grades. Unfortunately I decided to use a grade scale which was not meant for any of the homeworks that my students turned in. Eight of them have inflated grades (2-3% and one has a 4% bonus). So, now we are faced with what to do. Give them the corrected scores (after they have already gotten their grades) or keep the wrong scores (which would give them an advantage over the rest of the class)? If it was up to me I would change the grades and simply tell them it was my screw up and that I'm really not taking any points away which they earned. I know they would be mad at me, but that's what they earned!
Unfortunately, its not all up to me. Which makes me feel like an idiot. Why didn't I pay attention? Every other day I am wishing more and more to just go work at In-N-Out. My biggest problem would be figuring out how to take the burger smell off my clothes at night.
