“OK, it's an amazing world we live in. At 9:35 this morning, I get an e-mail from Quinn's kindergarten teacher saying that he didn't have his glasses today. And I call his day care -- first of all, the e-mail arrived on my cell phone, so that's pretty cool, of course, to begin with -- then I call his day care and say, "Hi, Miss Rosewood. Can you please check and see if Quinn left his glasses there last night? And if you have the staff, bring them over?" She says, sure thing, she'll check. And at 9:48 -- again, on my cell phone -- I get an e-mail from his kindergarten teacher saying, "Thank you, Kindercare brought his glasses over." This is what today's technology is enabling. Anyway, that's it for me for today. Bye, LiveJournal-ers...”

Speaking of cool technology - had to try the voice post! :-) But, why didn't they just call you, instead of sending e-mail?...

I had sent her an e-mail on a different subject...

...and I'm guessing that she just thought it would be easier to reply...

I suppose that makes a twisted sort of sense. (But if she's watching all those little kids, how does she have time to go online?)

She has an assistant, and the kids may have been busy working on an assignment.

Thinking back on my school days, there were plenty of times that my teachers were not actively engaged with class.
