I've almost made it....

Well, I've almost survived the first nine weeks of school. The quarter ends next Thursday...and I'm glad its over, but I actually like the three classes of kids I have this quarter. In the past, I've had some interesting classes, some disrespectful classes, disinterested classes, lazy classes....however my three classes this quarter have been pretty good for the most don't get me wrong, there are some lazy kids in these classes, I've been disrespected by students (one student this week told me to shut the f--- up because I told him to complete his assignment). But aside from those few semi-bruised (they are not rotten yet) apples, I have a larger bunch that's pretty good and have not be ruined by the semi-bruised apples (kids). The parents on the other hand are another story!!!

We enjoyed a game of health Bingo today in class and I was excited about how much the kids enjoyed it and remembered terminology they learned all the way back to the 2nd week in August. I'm glad that the information has stuck and hopefully they have all learned something from my class that they will take with them to make their lives better in the future. I tell them everyday in class, if you don't remember any statistics I give you or definitions of a health terms just remember every choice you make has a consequence good or bad. Strive to make good choices so you will stay away from bad consequences. Knowing that simple fact, will make them successful students and successful members of society as a whole.

I always thought I should have been a teacher. I feel like it's too late now and am a little saddened by that, but now I can live through you on your blog. Very neat information you've posted. I've never thought of entire classes have a personality. I wonder why that is? I'm sure it's because they all rub off on each other. Glad to hear your classes are a bit better than usual this year. And Health Bingo sounds like a fun way to learn!

I like your blog. I found you through Mom Bloggers Follow Group. I am now following and looking forward to reading more.
