after a long weekend
Back to the exciting life of an elementary school tomorrow after a long weekend. See what temporary insanity awaits me. You never know; it is so unpredictable. The student that stands up in the middle of the classroom and shouts shut up to everyone. When he is sent home after numerous disruptions his mother is unhappy because she just can’t babysit him. (Neither can I) And what about the other 24 students in the room. Are we to ignore their rights? Of course we have an alternative campus, but no one wants us to put an elementary student in there because it requires hiring another teacher to man the room with the one student. Not very cost effective, but hey everyone is now “entitled” to an education – psychotic or not. On the other hand, the Down’s Syndrome student that has learned to read this year at the age of 9. Hey, it may only be a kindergarten book at 22 words per minute, but what a joy to see and how hard she works at it. Most days the 99% are great, but that 1% keeps monopolizing the majority of the time. Reminds me of the protesters currently calling themselves the 99%. The ones that do what they are supposed to are always overshadowed by that 1%. Maybe those corporate greedy 1% should man the school for the disruptive student 1%.
