#27 - "1989 CDP Evaluation."
(Originally Published February 27, 2008.)

I found this First Grade teacher evaluation amongst a pile of papers my mother sent me late last year. You're going to want to click on the images to make them larger. It's worth it.

1989 Evaluation.

The handwriting on the bottom reads: "The boys think he's really smart, but they're getting tired of his cockiness." She also takes the time to underline 'impulsive' and mention that I have an authority problem, along with the X's painting a picture of me that's nothing short of unstoppable evil.

There's so much more. Keep reading.

Again, she takes the time to mention that I'm 'passively' uncooperative, and circles some of the most life-scarring and potentially damaging adjectives a person can say about a child. 'Tics?' 'Bizarre?' Goddamn. I'm quite certain that they no longer use this evaluation form at Winneconne Elementary School.

Notice that she never had anything bad to say about my academic achievements. This was all due in part to my being extremely bored with the coursework presented. She didn't stimulate me whatsoever, and I had nothing better to do than to entertain myself.

The grand finale is the final comment, which reads: "Ryan is way above First Grade level work. I must always keep him busy, because if I don't, he's distracting others. He has no sympathy for anyone and laughs at other children's mistakes. He also makes up stories and lies."

The 'has no sympathy for anyone and laughs at other children's mistakes' line is, without question, one of the funniest things anyone has ever written about me. I laugh my ass off every time I read it.

Almost 20 years later, and I haven't changed a bit, and that's a damn shame. After all, who would want to be a overachieving, defiant, anti-authority storyteller with no time or tolerance for stupidity? What a terrible fate that would have been.

Sound off in the comments section and enjoy your day.

I never realized it until now, but I was roughly 3 months old when this happened.

You were three months old, and apparently, I was the embodiment of all things wrong and evil with the world.
"How many months have you have this child in your class?"? Way to go, form-writing person. Way to go.
Way to ruin things for the young impressionable Cave Lad, CDP.
While you were raising hell in first grade, I was in third grade getting in trouble for sitting in the sinks. Yeah...for some reason we thought that was cool. In fact, I would probably try to sit in the sink on Monday if the water didn't turn on by senser...
Sadly enough, this could have been my senior year of high school evaluation...or my last exit interview.
