Today was one challenge after another. From the moment we got off the kids off the bus, one started whining about how HE DIDN'T WANT to be in my class and how HE ISN'T LIKE THOSE kids. I don't want him in my class as he doesn't fit but there is ... Read more

Today wasn't a bad day and I am alone, with the chance to catch up on paperwork. We had meetings but were allowed to leave early but I am enjoying the peace and quiet of an empty classroom. Tomorrow is an early morning for blood work at th... Read more
