Has anyone else noticed a disturbance in the Force lately? I mean it, Everyone; this week has sucked.
I’ve got this kid who insists on receiving different treatment than everyone else. He contends that he shouldn’t HAVE to follow the rules, and he takes every opportunity to point that out. I’m just about done with him.
I’ve got a class full of students who didn’t bother to tell me that the blog post I sent them to (you know; the one with the detailed instructions for what was due today) wasn’t opening properly. As a result, I’ve got a class full of kids who didn’t do the assignment according to the standards I set up. That puts us another day behind.
I’ve got another kid who is still not doing the reading, has no interest in participating in the class discussions (even when they don’t involve the reading) and freely admits that her problem is that she has her head up her ass (her words, not mine). Clearly, her efforts at extraction are not going well.
I’m very, very glad today is Friday. I’m going to go home this afternoon, do everything I can to hit the reset button, and pray that next week is better than this one was…
