ctj132 - good point about the snow! That was a LOT of fun this past winter!!!

As far as families and kids. Like was said before you're always going to have a mix. My population seems to be a bit challenging at times. I have a handful of students whose parents truly put education as a priority and are hands on, but unfortunately the majority are just barely making ends meet and have a bunch of family issues. In the later cases education seems to be put on a back burner. I have had to be like a parent (would be even if I didn't have kids with special circumstances ) a mentor, and their teacher. Keeping up communication with parents regardless of their attitude in the beginning toward you and school is what has really gotten me through and helped in changing some parents attitudes towards us teachers and the education system.

Best of luck to you and I'm sure you will make it a success! That's what we do!!!
