I got nothing this week!
It was a busy week!! I had class until 11:30 on Tuesday night which made for a very difficult Wednesday. A teammate had it out with my co-teacher over the fact that my co-teachers teenage daughter shows up frequently in the middle of the day with her friends to get candy and snacks. They are super loud in the hall. Our middle school and high school are in the same building, but HS students (such as my co-teachers daughter and her friends) aren’t suppose to be on the middle school side during the school day. So, everyone was having a meltdown on Thursday.
However, I got to check lots off my school psych practicum list thanks to the awesome intern at the elementary! She scheduled a WISC and a WIPPSI in the afternoon so I could see them and get them checked off my list. Monday we get to go to a manifestation determination meeting and check that off our list too!
My students this year are so…blah. They are really selfish, self centered, unkind, and sometimes even cruel. I haven’t seen a group like this in years. Even the group I had during my first year of teaching wasn’t this self-centered. They lie so easily it is kind of disturbing. If you want to know why teachers are getting out of education, I think it has more to do with the students than anything. Yes, admin isn’t supportive, there is the expectation to do too much, but honestly, I used to be able to ignore that stuff when I could see growth and development in students. That isn’t happening this year and it really makes everything else even more challenging.
Also, one of my 6th graders pooped his pants. In class. So yeah, that was my week.
So, whats new with you this week? Did you read any of the same books I did? Did you find any great book deals I need to grab ASAP? Let me know in the comments!
