Today I made sure that one of my students was suspended. I was nervous about what he was capable of doing. Maybe I am an alarmist- but this kid gives me the willies. He can be so sweet in tone and then mumble something very scary under his breath.
Teaching and I see eye to eye- less and less. Working with children who need help is so rewarding- and so draining. I am constantly ready to quit one day and dance in the next. Being in my particular field I do not have to worry about standards- I have to worry about getting them to the classroom so that others can worry about standards.
I am counting down the days. I truly am considering something else for next year- but what?
Confusing- but an easy jump!
