Report Reply 4 replies · active 283 weeks ago +2 Vote up Vote down Wellington Teacher · 283 weeks ago Ted, I was Pajama Day in celebration of Dr. Seuss’ Read Across America Week. So, the answer is no, the teachers are not allowed to wear sweats, hoodies, and t-shirts all the time! Jeans can only be worn on Fridays. Anyways, the story was about a student who was representing our community at a state spelling bee. Please congratulate her on a job well done!

I have to go look up “Anyways” in the dictionary, teach. Report Reply 0 Vote up Vote down Kaitlin · 283 weeks ago Go ahead Ted, maybe you will learn something new today!! Just remember teachers are who taught you how to read, write, count, etc. You may say your parents did, but unless you were home-schooled that is a lie. Have a great day!!! PS – Everyone needs to thank a teacher, without teachers no other profession would be possible!! Report Reply Post a new comment Enter text right here!
