All done with my three week assignment and I have posted grades. I enjoyed the time once we all came to an understanding of what was expected and what I wouldn't put up with. Choice is something I pushed. When they got sent to the office it was their choice not something I did or someone else did to them. The five rules worked great...most of the time. Another teacher I share students with told me that his kids will miss me. I told him they would miss the candy and he laughed and said that they said that also,but they did say they would miss me also.
I think I would like to do this for a career, good thing since I am studying that. I don't fear the kids, but I fear for them if they don't change their focus and directions.
