that tomorrow is the last day of school. I think this year I need it more than my own kids do. As much as I love the kids in my class and I do love each and everyone of them, there is such a thing as too many difficult children in one class and this year was it. Most of the year I had 5 difficult children in my class of 24. One moved away in March, another has been in a psychiatric hospital since April, and one has started to calm down a bit. The other two are major difficult children, in many ways a lot like my own difficult child. They are constant, want 100% attention (a bit hard to do with 22 children in the class-however being difficult children they make themselves heard), several adults could watch them do something but nope, they didn't do it, unwilling to accept any responsibility. It's not just in my room but no matter where they go, recess, specials, lunch. We have decent bips in place they just aren't enough. I teach a multiage classroom but two difficult children are moving on to middle school. I really like them, I'll probably even miss them but right now I so need a break! I can't even explain how much I need this break. Tomorrow we are letting both kids get whatever take out they want. Then husband and I are going out with his two sisters and a niece who are in town visiting. We're going to dinner and then to a casino about an hour away. husband and I can't wait for the school year to be done!!
