Open Letters

I have never written an open letter...but this seemed like a good week to do so.....


Dear University,
It is not nice to advertise that you have 5 campuses in nice locations and then really only offer classes at two of them. It is also not nice to say that you have a grad program designed for certified teachers working full time and then make their life miserable as they try to finish the program while working full time with their real students.

Love,
Stephanie

Dear Professor at Said University,
I know your class is easy. I shouldn't complain. But it is really stupid. We spend so much time wasted, talking about topics other than primary math and science. I would like to learn about primary math and science. Also, please don't make "proclamations" like "You should never do anything over the number 5 before Kindergarten" and "Kids younger than Kindergarten shouldn't ever do anything on paper including practicing their name or experiment with writing". That is not true. I work with many people more qualified than you who think it is a good idea to count above 5 and practice writing. Also, the Kindergarten teachers would kill us if we never exposed them to anything above 5 or a writing utensil.

Love,
Stephanie

Dear My Friend's Eggs,
Please make a baby for my friend. She really wants to have one. She will be a very good mom. Let those swimmers in!

Love,
Stephanie

Dear People in Chicago,
Why don't you wear a hat or scarf when it is 0 degrees outside? You make me look like a crazy person because I do. 0 degrees is very cold.

Love,
Stephanie

Dear Univent people,
This week my classroom was blowing air that was 44 degrees a good part of the day. That is very cold. You should go sit outside when it is 44 degrees with a bunch of preschoolers and tell me how you feel.

Love,
Stephanie

Very fun! I have never seen that before. I like it. I remember in high school I used to write letters to people and then never send them and it just feels good. :)
