Who's On Second?

I Have A Great Class!!!

Big SmileI have just completed my third full day with my new students, and I am so excited to say that I have an awesome class!  There is always the apprehension about what hand will be dealt the next time around, and I am coming off an extremely tough year.  The kids from last year were sweet to me, but terrible to each other, so it was a year of trying to manage the arguing, physical fighting,  and name-calling.  Not fun for any teacher!  Already I can see the difference in this new group.  Yes, there are some challenges: a new girl from Burma who speaks no English, a severely hearing-impaired student, five students who need a lot of help academically, and a couple of boys who need to learn acceptable school behavior.  However, when they are in cooperative groups, they actually get along!  What a refreshing and welcome change from last year's group!  Even the oppositional-defiant boy has not been unmanageable.  I am full of hope for a great new year!Left Hug
