life beyond the well…

the numbers…

i started out with 32 students over 2 class periods.

*1 is pregnant
*1 is getting married
*1 has been sent to jail
*1 is an ESL student
*2 have dropped out
*5 are special-ed students

so now i’m at 29 students over 2 class periods. 15 in one class, 14 in another. on a good day, i can expect to see 25 of my students. today was an exceptionally good day. i saw 28 of them.

i teach 10th-12th graders. their inability to write would scare you. somewhere down the line, they thought that sentences has some relationship to the lines on a paper (e.g.: write 5 sentences about public goods = write 2-3 lines on a sheet of notebook paper about public goods).

and you wonder why i’m always tired…
