This past week was rough! It was no surprise that it ended with Friday the thirteenth with a full harvest moon that was also a blood moon! The kids bounced off the walls - not just my kids but generally as well. I had detention duty and a total of 19 students were in detention. Another 10 students were suspended from school. To put it in perspective, our middle school has about 350 kids. We are a school culture that focuses on a program called "Capture Kids' Hearts". Last year when I had detention duty there were rarely more that 2-4 students. I don't think we had more than 15 students suspended all last year. When I spoke to the Speech therapist, he said every school he works with (more than a dozen around the area) said the kids were off the walls. Whatever the reason, it was a tough week for the students,making it even tougher for the teachers. I have to wonder what's going on.

Nancy from West Virginia - EST
With love and caring from Nancy ... wishing all of you a wonderful, blessed, and precious day.

School was good. I have been out of my room all week subbing for a regular ed teacher who lost her husband. So sad! Today I was able to return to my own room.

We are in Virginia. We are doing great. Only windy and rainy. People closer to the coast are having more wind and power outages. Feeling so sad for N.C., S.C., Fla. and Bahamas!

Nancy - what a wonderful idea to get all the kids involved.

BEACHCOMBER - hope you are staying safe and dry. Dorian is now moving up the Carolinas so maybe you were spared?

This was a really good day! Lots of excitement going on! Principal was given 2 tickets to WVU (state university) football game - seats on 30 yard line - but game! He had previous plans so he had a drawing for all the staff (cooks, custodians, teachers, aides, secretary, nurse, etc.) and my classroom aide son the tickets!

Kids were all excited because tomorrow the entire school will be going to walk down to the high school for a rare afternoon football game. Our middle school team will be playing in front of all their classmates for the first time. We live in a very rural area and it is quite spread out so many kids don't ever get to go to the evening games because of money, transportation, or other reasons. The idea for this started a couple of years ago when they started having one volleyball and one basketball game during school hours (they are played in our gym and kids don't have to leave the school). This year they decided to try it with football. Three of my kids will be going with an aide. The rest aren't interested and I can't walk down the hill to the high school or back up afterwards, so we will stay and put a movie on for them. I hope they have fun! One of those going is my "star" student who just started going all day.

I had another student extend his time today - slowly moving toward a full day.

I had my 3 IEP meetings today and they all went off without any hitches or glitches!

I ended my day with PT. Overall a busy busy day but a good one!

I had a great day!! This begins week 4 for us, I believe


There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.

I CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH CHRIST!!

Nancy - I would bet that your encouraging teaching has brought about some positive behaviors. I'm sure the parents will be thrilled.

School today was good! Despite having twice as many kids, the year has started off smoothly. The worst behaviors I am seeing are minor upsets. Very low functioning kids tearful meltdowns, those who are higher functioning have had a few squabbles or a little sass. My two students who started with shortened days have both had their time extended. The one has turned things around so amazingly since last year at this time. A year ago she was being put out of school for her outrageous, inappropriate behaviors. Tomorrow she has an IEP that will be entirely positive! I am so proud of her. She stayed the whole day today for the first time since last September - NO behavior episodes!

I have three IEPs tomorrow and in all three cases, will be reporting good news to the parents. This is a wonderful feeling!

I love it when the year starts out with the feeling you've got a great group of kids! Hope your year goes well and you see lots of growth. Sixth graders are a fun group because they come in as still being elementary and by the end of the year they are usually definitely middle school.

Well, it was only the second day today, and I was so happy we still don't have three days left in the week! 😂 Too early to really read them yet, but I think I have an awesome group of 6th graders this year.

Take care of yourself, concussions are nothing to sneeze at! Today I did my best to beautify myself. I went to get haircut, ended up with mani-pedi, haircut, color, curl and styled. At least I tried and will feel prettier than if I hadn't done this.

Last week got the e-mail with the first three days schedule. They call Monday- Wednesday "Teacher Work Days" then schedule so many meetings that out of the three days we get a total of two hours to actually work in our rooms and then only if a meeting doesn't run long or if a department doesn't plan a meeting. But I AM looking forward to seeing the students on Thursday!! emoticon

Nancy Pat - I too start back on the 12th with Dr okay (concussion and still have minor symptoms). Am nervous about the first few weeks readjusting. Not going in early and may not be staying after. Wishing you the best!

We will start back on the 12th of August. Kids come in on the 20th. I am okayed to start on time but expect it to be a challenging couple of weeks only being 4 weeks out from my knee surgery. Not going in early but am sure we will manage!

We had a field trip to the zoo yesterday and field day today. The kids were great in the zoo and we even had to combine another class with ours because the teacher and the IA were both out. I think field day will have to be inside but I am sure we can still make it fun for the kiddos

Today was a fantastic day at school! Kids' last day was Monday and was a half day. Yesterday and today we had meetings and cleaned out our classrooms. Over the past few years I have gotten more efficient with the cleanup. It used to take me about a week to get the job done, then three days, then two, last year was half a day after we were excused on our last day at noon, and this year, I was done before noon and was able to tell my son, "we are done and while it was nice of you to volunteer, I don't need you this year!" Talk about a GREAT way to end the school year! Normally he and I work for hours and even days after most of the other teachers are gone. This year was a really nice year. With all our challenges, we were adequately staffed, the kids so made progress, we got along and I avoided the feelings of being overwhelmed, and wanting to quit that have often crept into my school year. Even when my personal life has been overwhelming, I have not been one of those suffering burn out this year.

School was good. We are practicing for the pre-K graduation. Yesterday we had a field trip outdoors in 96 degree weather. We kept the kids well hydrated and they did not even complain about the heat. Little Troopers! I was complaining loudly in my head! LOL

My students were pretty good today, but another "resource student" stole 2 large carving knives from the teachers' lounge took the first home where an elementary school student got it and turned it in, then told on the first student. Today before that report got to our school, he stole another one and when caught said he was going to kill himself. He is now in hospital and nobody was injured, but the fear it gave us all, just thinking of the damage he could have done.

Our school is in a very rural community, and not a place where we expected this. There will be a crack down on backpacks and instrument cases now. All knives and sharp objects in kitchen, teacher lounges and classrooms must now be under lock and key.

Started out with a full house - all five were present and in good moods.The attrition rate was pretty high though. by 10:30, one had left for dentist appointment. At 12:00 one had gone home sick after several bouts of diarrhea (despite full changes of clothes and a shower, she was clearly sick). At 12:30, another had to be taken out of gym because she was eating poop and had it all over her clothes (didn't send her home, but needed to change and clean her up). At 1:00 one was sent home during a major meltdown because he wanted nail clippers to cut his already too short fingernails. At 2:00 the last student told us he was sick and vomited but couldn't call his mom because she had started a new job today so he would be okay to go home on the bus. At 3:08, the day ended!!!!

Today was a bit calmer than yesterday - started our summative assessments and had an IEP yesterday and one tomorrow so it was a lull between chaos. I did have lunch detention duty today but the kids were polite and no problem

We had a fantastic field trip to the Children's Museum! Learned about Owls eating mice. Loved the look of amazement on a 4 year old girl's face when she said " I never knew that!"

Yes, thank you for the comment - I am sure there will be room for all the fantastic General Education teachers as well, our challenges are different but not necessarily any more important.

Before the IEP could be done on a computer, I did them at home a lot. Now that they are on the computer I prefer to just go in early or stay late. I know I could do it at home but for some reason I just don't anymore.

Our Spring break comes in April around Eastertime. We are getting lots of mini breaks this winter courtesy of the bi-polar weather swings.

Other than starting out with a student vomiting on the floor first thing this morning, the day is going exceptionally well.

As for the feeling of being stuck in a Groundhog Day scenario, I feel it at times and especially when I try something new and it BOMBS big time. At other times, I feel as though the world is opening in wonder before my eyes and my kids are blossoming like forsythia at the first signs of spring, Teaching is not a straight line kind of job but rather a stroll through the briars, the brambles, and the grassy fields.
