It makes a world of difference in a classroom when a naughty student leaves, for whatever reason. Don't feel bad, and enjoy your dance of joy!

Go to Office Max or someplace like it, and pick up some stackable trays. You can label them. I would spend a few minutes before school and a few after school organizing papers. Does everything have...

It sounds like the kid needs a lot of help (academically and emotionally, if his meds are making him have suicidal thoughts). Does your school have a special education program he can be referred to...

This is a tricky one... I would definitely get back-up from your admistration on this one. I agree that s/he should help you fill out the student teacher's evaluation. Can you schedule a meeting with...

She just sounds plain annoying. But if you let her, she will drive you bonkers. Calmly express to her that her radio volume is disruptive, that it interferes with your concentration. If she begins to...

to leave or not to leave

To begin, I am really sorry for all you have been through. I can't even imagine. Having no support in a school environment when support is more than needed is the pits. I think maybe you just need a...
