I wrote up a kid this morning for his behavior. He responded by saying “no wonder no one likes you.” I know I have kids that love me and the only reason he doesn’t like me is because I see through his BS, but it still hurt a little.

I am a teacher student from Germany and work as a substitute teacher in a privat school while studying. It’s hard because you never have the same class and you have to give mach lessons even if you are an english teacher. But I keep getting this 8th grade nearly always I am there. They are considered one of the worst classes, but they are the only ones to Show me Respekt, ask for help and actually want to learn. I don’t know why but by now I consider them my class.

On Spring Break this week. Just saw that one of my students shot and killed himself. I feel like I should’ve done more while he was in my class. I feel like I’ve failed as a teacher.

With all my crazy, mean middle schoolers….there is a huge light.

I have this autistic students, incredibly smart but is OBSESSED with being perfect (getting 100s and always being right). This kid went from never helping others to being a guardian angel with some of my “strugglers”. From freaking out over the little things to being okay with getting a few Fs. I am so proud of this student for how she grew. <3 She is the reason why I am a teacher.

Today is Monday, and I sent a kid to the office for his behavior a mere 13 minutes into the school day. I think I might have set a new personal record.

I’m a first year middle school teacher. Never thought I’d be with the big kids but here we are. I gave my students in class work time for their papers that were due that day. One student, who already submitted his paper, decided to use his extra time to interview other students to create a summer reading list for me. Middle schoolers can be tough, but they are SO special!

All week I had been ringing parents to let them know how well their child was doing in my class and how much I enjoy teaching them. All the parents were so happy to hear such fantastic things and they told me that their child thought I was hilarious or that they love being in my class, but the best part was when one of my students came in smiling from ear to ear and asked me if I had really said all those things about her. She looked so happy and proud that it made the rest of the week so much better especially as I had been having a hard time in other areas.
