I love my job

Clip to ScrapBook #1

I had a meeting on Friday regarding a child that has been a behavior problem in my class. On Thursday he spit on me several times , once in class, twice going to the office, and fourth in the office. Then on Friday since he didn't get to talk when he wanted to he hit me. Now this is a 9th grade MH kid that will blow up and 30 minutes after he calms down he knows exactly what to apoligize for. Well in the meeting mom was supportive of doing whatever we felt necessary, except sending him home, but thought that he was spending to mcuh time on one classroom (I have him 6 class periods) and wanted him at the high school more time, which I am all for.

Now the problem with this situation, my para has to leave and go with him while he is at the high school. I get no planning period since I have a para in the room and I manage to get 30 for a lunch (away from kids) but with this new set up I will get no lunch, no planning period still, and no para. By the time my para gets back it will be time for their lunch (which is an hour). This means I will not have one moment in my day where I can get away from the kids for even 10 minutes. Don't get me wrong I love my students and for the most part they are good, but everyone needs a few minutes of peace to regroup. The other spec. ed teachers still have their paras all day, get a lunch with no kids, and a planning period.

It is sad how one child can disrupt a whole routine.
