Oh, this was very good. I have a special place in my heart for special education students, as I've worked with and been around them in various capacities.

I think this would have been a bit stronger all in past tense, as it would help get rid of some of the passive sentences.

Great job. Keep writing!

Enjoyable read. Loved your analogy of the kids being like buzzing bees and the feeling of tension in the little boy's hand. The alarm clock description was nice too. Watch the word "quiet" in several places should be "quite." Probably just a simple typo. Overall, very nice descriptive writing.

This is a great piece! Makes me wish I were sitting there with all those kids watching the jellys!!! Nice calm moments with kids -- few and far between:)
