Anyway, before I get to the pictures, I need to vent.
I mean, REALLY REALLY VENT.
I've been teaching for 21 years.
I'm no novice at this game.
This year, it's been CRAZY!
Now, I know that once in a while, you get a group of kids that have their extra "challenges".
But this year, I've been dealing with a lot more.
I cannot give more detail, but I would love to.
But, I cannot be unprofessional about it.
Let's just say, that I have a very difficult class and it's mostly the boys, and it's mostly behaviour.
Today was the final straw in a long list of issues.
My school is up on an embankment above a relatively busy street in the city.
Let's remember that I have been at this particular school for 12 years now.
Today, four of my little "darlings" decided to throw 'boulders' over the fence and down the hill onto the busy street at lunchtime. When I say boulders, I mean rocks the size of an american football.
One of these 'boulders' almost hit a car.
Who's liable in these situations????
Why would they do such a dangerous thing?
Nothing like this has ever happened before.
What would have happened if they had acutally caused a traffic accident.
Anyway, I just needed to vent.
