After a LOT of drama going on in my class (things that started in earlier years for them and were never dealt with, so everything exploded when they got to me), we've had 3 solid weeks of no drama and repairing relationships. I genuinely considered quitting my job a month ago because I didn't know how much more I could take. But I'm finally at a point where I look forward to going to work again!

As a special education teacher I was given a 1st grade girl who walked out of class and refused to go back. She hit and bit other teachers and students in her general education classroom. She has some underlying issues that are part of her condition. Since coming to my classroom she has not hit or bit anyone and is getting her work done. If someone is bothering her she will come tell us. If she gets upset instead of walking out of the room she will stand and scream and cry. I think this is a very positive thing for her. She has even started engaging the other girls in the class and interacting with them. It has to be on her terms right now but that’s a big step for her.

One of classes is starting to feel like “home” where the kids are clicking and pushing each other. Today we were doing some practice questions on whiteboards and everyone was racing each other and helping one another if they got stuck even at the last minute of class. For the last class of the day everyone was engaged until the bell rang. Also last Friday, two students stayed well at the end of class to finish some crafts we were completing in class. It wasn’t for a grade, but we just sat and chatted while they worked. It’s those small moments that make a world of difference in this profession!

The more I thought about this post, the more I realized even when I can't single out one "amazing" thing, a little bit of amazing is happening all the time. Every time a kid asks a question, offers an answer, asks for help, gives help, or simply makes the right choice over the wrong choice, it accumulates "amazing" in your life. You just have to acknowledge it.

I have enjoyed seeing the students focus a few minutes each day on Veterans Day work. Nothing political, no agendas. Just one group of people acknowledging the service, sacrifices, and commitment of another group of people.

Children not wearing masks this year! Yay. They are finally communicating again and they can understand each other. So great to see their smiles

My students all wear masks and it doesn’t impact their ability to communicate or understand each other. I’m glad they wear masks to stop the spread.

I started a mural club!

Is there anyone that is teaching from home and your students have returned to school? How did you get permission to do that and how does that work with kids in the classroom? I am guessing there has to be an adult in the room while the students are in there but is there another teacher during their planning or do you have to get a sub? Our reentry has been delayed and I am working with HR to try and stay home while students aren’t there but it looks like I’m going to have to take some Parental Leave once students do return because there is not a plan otherwise.
