dutiesPosted: September 14, 2011
It took a good 10 minutes to get my class of 15 boys and 4 girls back on track this afternoon when I introduced the concept of Civic “duties”. Get it?
School days never cease to surprise me. This morning I had a student escorted out of homeroom by a security officer. By the time he came to me for his afternoon class, he apologized to me for his actions and attitutude. We agreed that we would start over, and I told him that everyone has bad days. I am incredibly more graceful and merciful as a teacher than I could ever hope to be as a person.
