Guess who is back?

Luckily my computer started up again. Unfortunately my battery is still dead and I have to buy a new one for $75 out of my $200 school budget. Blah!

The first week of computers my student T got kicked out for uncontrollable laughter. I have never had a student kicked out of computers, so I was shocked. Yesterday we had computers again and this same kid got kicked out again. (Last time he just was sent in the hall and I found him.) And then this time he wouldn't stop laughing and burping so he was sent back to class. He came in 10 minutes after computers had ended and the class was now in PE. I asked him where he had been and he told me he was too scared to tell me he had been kicked out of computers. I asked him why and he said he didn't want to get kicked out of school for the year. He had it in his mind that he was done forever! haha. I guess I am doing my job by being a strict teacher.

Today during the last half hour of school this boy J had somehow redone his hair do. His hair was all wet and spiked. I asked him why he was doing his hair.
"Because I am so hot and it's better for me to get my hair wet because it takes all my sweat away. And the only other way to get rid of the sweat is to take my shirt off, and I don't think you want me to do that."

New girl in my class came to school with nasty pink eye. Here one eye was all red and pussy in the corner. I had her call home but her mom didn't come until almost the end of the day. I was so sad when I saw that she was absent today along with the boy sitting next to her.

Oh and the best news of all? Each year the Title 1 schools have each grade target their 9 lowest kids. Then we work extra hard with them. Then we compare their end of year tests from 2nd to 3rd grade.  We just got our results back today and our team made the most improvement out of all the 3rd grade Title 1 schools in our district. Sorry I had to toot my own horn a little bit. But it was seriously such a great feeling to see how well our kids did last year.
