Re: enjoying work

there's been a few bumps, but that's to be expected at the beginning of a new school year.




I was shocked to discover positive graffiti in the girls' bathroom.

Re: enjoying work

Witnessed two boys messing around one day - thought they were playing. Made them knock it off.

Next time I saw them messing around I told them their behavior wasn't acceptable (not those words); but also made a note to myself to talk with the boy who seems socially awkward privately.

Turns out he was being bullied & said no one would do anything about it. I had a talk with the teacher in that class, then followed up the next school day. I found out that once the teachers started keeping an eye of both boys - they'd caught the bully twice (in about a 10 minute period). The bully now avoids the other kid.

Re: enjoying work

'nother class, same kid, more of the same type of bullying


I spoke with the teacher of that class, and he's made a change that I hope helps.


But the student trusts me now as I was shutting down the rude boys.

Re: enjoying work

on-line school, well - its better than nothing


But some on our students needs can't be met via on-line classes.

We were making progress with some self-care goals - that's shot.

Re: enjoying work

That's so sad. Do they have supportive families?
