The kids were really difficult today. They don’t want to listen, they don’t want to sit still, and they don’t want to work. My Period 3 was defiant and angry in a way that they’ve never been before (not their worst day by far, just a different type of difficult). It’s exhausting.
I don’t think I’ve changed, and I don’t think they’ve changed. I think they are 8th graders, done with AIMS and checked out of school. They’re ready for high school and done listening to us. I had this image that I could be really fun the last few weeks of school and let them leave with good memories of math and me, but I’m thinking I might have to turn into Super Bitch instead. This could be a longggg 20 days.
