I can relate to many of these descriptions. I like how the teacher focuses more on the students than the lessons. Great job!

This is such a timely piece as we count down to the end of the school year. (8 more days in the district where I work.) I loved the different characteristics of the students.
I loved your ending! I also liked the descriptions of being held hostage at a staff meeting, and that one person who keeps asking questions. Well done!
I can relate to this. It sounds a bit like what my daughter describes (never uses names and is very broad in description to maintain confidentiality) in her 1st grade classroom. Although times have definitely changed from when I was a student. Kids seem more damaged, needy, defiant in the world as it is, which makes it so much more important that we pray for teachers and students alike. Good job.

As an ex-teacher, you do get caught up in the lives of your students. You know right from the get-go if it's going to be a good year or a bad one. And you showed the "realness" of kids. The good and the bad.

Teachers are good 'readers' of people aren't they? As a former teacher I could tell which of my students were going to be trouble or not. Confession: some of the naughtiest ones were my favorites!
Love this peek into a teacher's life. It was fun to read and written well. Thumbs up.
Congratulations on your EC! Happy Dance!
