Good "vent"!

I had such a rough class last year that I contemplated quitting.
My class this year is light years different! I have 21 instead of 31. They help each other. They encourage each other. They walk in the hallways in line quietly.
They aren't perfect. I have a couple with attitude, and a couple of talkers. But for the most part, they are respectful, kind, and helpful.
It's truly uplifting to watch them.
Of course, it's only the 3rd day of school, so I'm sure we'll have issues. But this year is off to a great start!

I only have 16 first graders. I usually have 24. I don't have any with severe behaviors. Last year, I had 3 with difficult behaviors and 9 who were diagnosed with disabilities.

I'm glad that you're having a good start to your year.

Your post sounds like something I could've written! I didn't think about quitting since I'm too close to retirement, but I was definitely a whooped puppy when I got home every night.

I'm in my 3rd week of school and my group is still leaps and bounds better behavior-wise than last year's group. What a nice feeling! Even my chatty ones are nothing compared to what I endured last year.

Here's hoping your whole year is a pleasant one!

That is wonderful! I'm in a similar situation. Even on bad days, I don't complain because I remember how bad last year was!

It truly is uplifting to see students helping and encouraging one another. I hope that it's a great trait that will stay throughout the school year!
