If you know me you know that I work at an alternative high school. The group of kids we currently have are some of the most challenging individuals I have ever worked with.
Many arrive to school regardless of the day of the week, hungover and a little worse for the wear.
They spend a great deal of time fighting and strutting around with their chests stuck out in an attempt to show how tough they are.
Actually, deep down they are a lot of powder-puffs. Their bark is worse than their bite. They are troubled, dealing with drugs and other problems and they wear many different hats.
As the holidays draw near, I find that it is harder and harder to get them to do much. However, when push comes to shove, my advisory comes together, puts their differences aside, and work to accomplish things.
I let you know how the next couple of weeks go.
