School Stuff

I try not to talk about school stuff too much on this blog.  Today, and the past few weeks, my heart has been very heavy.  I have to be somewhat vague, to be protective of this child as I write here.  This child takes some heavy adult meds, and when he has these meltdowns (uncontrollable sobbing, rambling on with hurtful comments to me, etc) I can tell they are beyond the child's control.  The frequency of these meltdowns has increased greatly in the month.  At first, I thought the student was a really strong willed child, which I've dealt with before, but then I started to notice this child's differences.  I can see the inner turmoil when I deal with this child, and it is scary and sad for me. 

We are now reaching the point in the school year where things are going to go so fast, it will be a complete blur!

Most people have NO idea what we go through in our day-to-day lives with our students. And, people have the gall to say we have too much time off, "play" all day, should be getting merit pay, etc. To those people I say- Blow it out your ass!
