A classroom is not a great place to be when the "sap is rising."

Just sayin.

One left in handcuffs for an involuntary commitment.

One "fuck all of you" after being questioned by the police for off campus gang activity. Why he returned to class and then didn't want to leave? I offered to let him gather himself and wash his face in the bathroom where he promptly fell apart and punched a wall.

One "suck my &^%^="

One case of body odor so bad that even open windows didn't help (LOVE having kids after gym... ) And the other kids all had to ask (repeatedly) why the room smelled like burritos...


A whole host of items slung in anger... a notebook, a computer, some pencils, my classroom phone.

A loud noise at the end of the day? One TA ducked, and the other mumbled that she may have actually shit herself.

Oh, Yes. Happy Spring.

thanks cmego.

It helps to put it here and let it go. The adrenalin can be hard to deal with!

What amazes me is that even in all of this, there was still LEARNING that took place.

There were kids who remained calm and let the drama spin around them and be dealt with.

There were witty quips and tension releasing laughter. There was after all, quite a lot to work with.

And we have Saturday school this week! Whooooo. Hooo.

And my excitement of the day was going to Rita's for free Italian ice.

CG you're an amazing teacher!

Thanks for the support and cyber high fives. Feeling the LOVE!

Trust me, we all laughed at the TA's. We have that "gallows humor" thing going. Gotta laugh or cry and laughing is way more fun.

Holy hell is right. What kind of school do you work in?

IS this a normal day or was today special?

Another cyber high five from me! Former trauma counselor, I totally understand the higher temps leading to higher...um..."excitement"

On your gotta laugh note, a former co-worker said "you gotta laugh, you know? Bc otherwise you'd say oh God I can't get out of bed"...she had a hilarious dry sense of humor, so it was much funnier in her tone than it reads

Happy spring to you, and safe thoughts for undoubtedly more pants-shitting moments to come...seems like you have an amazing attitude about it, I'm very impressed!

What kind of school do you work in?

Students are assigned to my school for "behaviors" that got them expelled from regular school. They are middle school and high school aged. Our advantage is that our class sizes are small. We have a great deal of structure and high expectations for behaviors. Staff is compassionate and thinks outside the box. It is (as we say frequently) "never boring!"

But yesterday was a bit odd. We have psych. issues somewhat frequently that require crisis assessments. That is what happened yesterday with the one student. Every child has a court counselor and/or probation officer and they are frequently at the school.

Usually things don't get thrown in my classroom, so that was outside the norm! The language was not directed at me, but at other students, or just in general frustration.

I can usually keep a pretty good attitude about the children. They are still children. Most of them have tragic histories, so the compassion is easy. My sense of humor usually helps to defuse a situation, and these kids know I care, and that goes a long way.

Thanks again. It helps to hear it and to reaffirm my purpose.

CG, I'm just glad I know you.

I read a good Anne Lamott quote that reminds me of your day. Will dig it up and post/send.
