Man, sometimes I think the county expects me to be a miracle worker. It has been a highly stressful, frustrating week. I have gone from having a small class of students that I knew well to a class with those kids plus three more; one with seriously intense behaviors. Behaviors that I can, on the surface, address…
…but behaviors that really need something I can’t give this kid. I HATE that parents assume their kids are young and resilent and don’t remember things. News flash: Yes they do. This kid really needs some psychological help for things he’s seen and heard and I am NOT in any way qualified to do that. And all those behaviors that I’m addressing on the surface, just maybe they would be better served in another classroom setting with the correct professionals. Or at least by professionals that the mother needs to seek out on her own. I mean, really, if it all affected her the way that I hear, you’d think she’d have the sense to know it affects her kids too. But maybe I am asking for too much.
But anyway, I am really still alive. And frustrated. But somehow, with less than 7 weeks of school left, I’m going to deal with this and come out on the up side. For the good of this child. Or at least I hope so.
from Kryptonite by Three Doors Down:
Well I took a walk around the world to ease my troubled mind
I left my body lying somewhere in the sands of time
But I watched the world float to the dark side of the moon
I feel there is nothing I can do, yeah
I watched the world float to the dark side of the moon
After all I knew it had to be something to do with you
I really don’t mind what happens now and then
As long as you’ll be my friend at the end
And if I go crazy then will you still call me Superman?
If I’m alive and well, will you be there holding my hand?
I’ll keep you by my side with my superhuman might
