Just finished a glass of whiskey and Coke…was one of those days…love those junior high kiddos…but I tell you…some days they run a person ragged.
One group of the seventh graders are pissed at me because I turned them into the office for continually refusing to mind me during study hall…when I had it and yelled for them to stop being loud and hopping all over the room they reacted like I was out of place…had had it with being ignored…they have seldom ever heard Ms. P raise her voice. Thursday they will be getting a visit from the principal on their poor behavour.
The seventh grade started with another new math teacher today. The original math teacher passed away in January…the following two quit…yeah, a spunky group…they are my favorites after being their aide all last year, but man…they are tough on teachers they decide they don’t like. Have to say, this new one seems like she may last, she was stern with them, told them one strike and they were at the office…she would not tolerate their antics…maybe if the others had started that way they would have lasted.
The major plus of the day was getting one of my kiddos to sit and focus long enough to recite for me a personal narrative paper that was due days ago. I don’t mind writing for them as long as they tell me what to write….if that gets the work done some days…just tell me what to write…team work.
Tomorrow is a short day…I get off early…my brother and I are headed down to state to watch my niece’s team play basketball…not a big fan of basketball, but going to state is a big thing and it’s her senior year…so road tripping we go! Not so sure I’ve ever road tripped with my brother…should be interesting.
Besides that, a fairly dull day…dull is better than crappy!
