My year is going awful. Between BD kids in my room throwing fits and a horrible heartless principal I want out of teaching but can't afford to. I am now on medication for depression and to get me some sleep at night. I am beside myself. I have never felt so helpless and unsupported in my life. So sorry to be so down. I just keep hoping it will get better. I am referring another one of my students for behavior issues so I am hoping he will get better.
I have lost weight because of all the stress I'm under. No exercise but not much eating either. Hopefully my next note will be more cheerful. I enjoyed my break immensely. It was very hard to go back.
Glad you are back. I have continued to check on you and were hoping you would come back eventually. Maybe we can inspire each other and keep each other up. Anything would help at this point. emoticon

Hey! Looks like we both took some time away from SP. I got back on the wagon on Saturday and tonight I actually got back on the treadmill. Gained back 7 of the 30 that I lost last year, so I am hoping that I can lose those 7 in January.

Good Luck Lady!!!!!!

Here it is, Sunday night. I had such a good weekend, now it's time to start thinking of what the week is going to be like. We have homecoming this week, and you know what that means, kid who want to have fun all week with little learning.
We have a class that is a handful, some of them don't care about learning so it is miserable for those who want to learn. I had a mother email me today explaining how her son is upset because he can't learn because the kids are always disrupting the class. So I guess we'll meet tomorrow as a team and come up with some answers.
We have Aaron Thomas coming on Tuesday, his dad was Coach Thomas at A/P who was shot by a former student. I think the kids need to hear something inspirational from someone else.
Hope you have a great week! thanks for checking in.

I'm struggling here too. Everyday with this class is a struggle. I just hope to get through the day without someone throwing a fit. Some of them have such attitudes. I worry about them even learning anything with all their issues.
We started band competitions yesterday and Rick and I are chaperones. We enjoy it so much but it's tiring. That's the only exercise I'm getting. I just told my husband I have to get back on track. I have totally lost my whole healthy routine. Even my eating has gotten poor. I keep telling myself that because I have the class from Hell doesn't excuse letting myself go to pot.
We CAN do this! My son is healthy again. Thanks for asking. Let's keep in touch and keep each other pumped up. I have my first IEP meeting this week and hopefully some solutions are come up with for that student. He's one of my major disruptions in class.
This week we have the Homecoming parade on Thursday, Football game on Friday, and Competion in Urbandale on Saturday. Josh also starts his bowling league on Saturday morning too. I'm going to have to become very efficient with my school work to do it all.
Sorry for being so talkative. It's nice to have someone to share with that understands. YOU CAN DO IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! emoticon emoticon

Hi Lady! Things are going pretty good here. Earl missed us, didn't even get rain from it. THE GIRLS GO BACK TO SCHOOL TODAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am just a little excited :) Totally slacked off this summer, but I was able to maintain my weight, give or take a couple of pounds. Going to kick it back into gear now that we will be getting back to a routine. Glad to hear the flooding didn't touch you too much! Have a GREAT week! Can't wait to drop the girls at school today!
