Just my day in a Second Grade General Education Classroom! Child takes (is permitted by administration) to take off shoes and socks, lay under the table and play on IPAD all morning. Another child making loud noises all day and refusing to do any classwork at all without one on one help. Student three smells like a wet cat so bad the windows have to be open. Student four yells across the classroom all day and I mean all day! Student five refuses to answer any question I ask her. Student six turns his back on me during instruction, jumps in the air, and dances around his desk. Student seven asks when is lunch at least five times before lunch and then after lunch asks at least five times when do we go home or can I use the bathroom because it is an emergency. Student eight is picking at his fingers and staring into space rather than doing any independent center work. Oh NO-the student laying under the desk has decided he will slam the door and run down the hallway yelling his teacher is a stupid b..ch....! No consequences for that because his parents will sue the district or file Harassment charges! Student nine is crying because he doesn't want to write and he apparently lost a nickle. Student nine threw a pencil across the room! I look around the room and Yes-I see the two students that fill my heart with pride because they are actually doing what they should be and are my only hope that someone will learn anything at all this year! This is not an exaggeration-this is the reality of a typical day in my classroom! On a bad day security is called and the class has to be removed for their safety because someone has exploded in anger! General Education-I repeat General Education Class!!
