What made this week so special? I got two new students, putting my total to twelve. This may not seem like a lot, but each of my deaf education colleagues have six. There's nothing I can do about it: it's just the way the cookie crumbles.
Also? My first graders went from calm (and at times quirky) to outright defiant and aggressive. Case in point:
I've had 5 straight days of this. I'm ready to hide, too.
Also? One of my kindergartners has decided to express herself by hitting. Last week she scratched me in two places (drawing blood) and yesterday she punched me in the face. She has a lot of issues going on so it's hard to hold it against her. But still.
Thank goodness it's Friday, folks. I need a break!
