Amen! You are totally not alone. Basically, all the materials I prepared for today are on hold for tomorrow, because one of my new little friends needs so much extra. He is a runner, biter, head-butter, hitter...yeah, so when he tried to flood the gym restroom sink and had to leave recess to come sit in my classroom (my paras were watching the group), I didn't get any work at all done. And he fired me twice. 😆

He fired you twice. OMG. TOO FUNNY. Give that boy a jump rope and wear him out.

Goodness, YES! So happy to hear that I'm not alone! Thanks for confirming that the pain is sometimes real as we chase a student through the halls and block doors and windows. Helped chase a kinder today, he was done and going home. Except that we had 3 more hours of school left. OMG what a day! 🤪😂🤣🙃

It not only happens sometimes, it happens a lot. In fact, what you have just described is regular life. Somehow either we or our society have wedged us into a corner where we must be “super “ (efficient, role model, educator, etc.). America in general has had this problem where we need to be number one, biggest, strongest, richest… and these unrealistic expectations not only causes other countries to look at us with ridicule but no little cognitive dissonance among ourselves, exactly in the way that you mentioned. No one is perfect, everything will be fine if we use our best intelligence, education, and experience. But of course, the best laid plans of mice and men…

Oh my gosh…. So hard. Then at the end of the day you beat yourself up. Yelling does not help. The kids love it. Instead take pleasure in their disobedience and give them some kind of chore that helps you out. Give the good kids rewards. You must teach 4th or 5th grade I bet. Lol

Yep. Ended up yelling at my 5th graders today. I feel you

Another partner got so mad, couldn’t understand how I could leave them for this firm, went on bashing this firm, they’re falling apart, we get calls from their partners who want to come here, etc.
