I had issues with the same student today over 1pt. It was ridiculous. He will wear you out until you give in. I gave him the benefit of the doubt that maybe he didn't see the worksheet in his project folder, but I know that I put it in there. He was absent one day. Anyway, I tore it up and told him he didn't have to do it, and he kind of freaked out then, and took it like he was going to do it anyway. I told him that if he did it, I was not going to grade it. I would exclude it. We had to post our grades, and I really couldn't change it, but went to the woman that finishes the grades and said that she hadn't posted them yet, so it was okay. He really knows how to push my buttons, and I really need to get that under control. I need to take a class on how to deal with those types of students. They teach you how to teach but never how to deal with obnoxious students. I have had lots of different ways... anyway... enough. Thanks for the encouraging words.

Thanks for the advice about the timer and music. I usually have a TV show dvrd so I watch it while walking.
