School has been... well, it's middle school. What do you want? I just graded the most recent quiz and have realized that they haven't been listening to a single word I've said for the past week at least. Great.

Starting tomorrow my most difficult class should be cut in half, with the most disruptive students gone to another (more experienced) teacher. I really hope she convinces them to cut the bullshit, because almost nobody in that class was getting anything done. I think I need to spend tomorrow laying down the law to the students that are left -- which is just FANTASTIC, since goodness knows there's plenty of time in the pacing guide for behavior modification and going over classroom expectations. Oh yeah, and the fact that we're already three weeks behind and it looks like they weren't paying any attention to the entire last chapter? No problem.

Leeetle bit frustrated. Had a good last period Friday, though (they did the worksheet! Pathetic to be excited about that, but I'll take what I can get) so am feeling not as defeated as has sometimes been the case.

Back to the grading grindstone.

I hope your ears were burning, we were speaking very favorably about you yesterday!

Dinner with Jars.

We ate around the corner from our old place, at Asmara, where I've never eaten before. Craziness!

Keep at it, Em. Someone in that room is listening.

It's very easy to quit (I know as an acquaintance of mine just tendered her resignation after three weeks in her first teaching assignment). I don't think I could stomach it if someone else I know threw in the towel.

Are beatings against your curriculum guidelines? I could send you a paddle in the mail.
