Tyrese was absent today. Today was a good day. I think maybe I’m getting used to his behavior, but the class works so much smoother when he’s not around. Just think, if he was out of my class everyday would be like today.
There were moments in the day where my students were working and not one student was talking.
We transitioned between specials and lunch without having to stop and do it again.
When my students moved between their desks and the carpet, they did it without knocking into each other.
No students cried. Nothing was stolen. All of the sharpened pencils kept their tips.
One student really can make all the difference. I hope he crawled back to hell where he came from.
