I have been called "insensitive" for following my late policy. My policy is in writing and the parents receive it on Back to School Night. Plus, I teach 11 and 12 year olds, and they are old enough and responsible enough to complete assignments on time. I'm sorry if you consider me "insensitive" for taking points off because you were at a concert last night or you "forgot" (even though it's been posted on the board and on my website for weeks!) or you were just too busy to do homework. Twenty years ago, as a new teacher, the comment would have bothered me and I probably would have even caved in to a parent's request to give points back. Now, though, I calmly tell parents I am sorry they feel that way, but to embrace this incident as a learning experience.
