Moving forward (?)
Monday, September 14, 2015
This new student may be the single greatest challenge of my 16 year teaching career. I know I have the skills and understanding, but I am struggling to get through to him. It is hard because he is so aggressive and puts all my other students and my staff in danger. I am attempting to keep myself positive, while maintain safety and my sanity. It is a daily struggle not to reach for chocolate or junk food as a way to soothe my soul. Or a drink. How to move forward with this child and this school year, when I want nothing more than to cry myself to sleep? I hope I will have this answer soon.
