    Is that what they call it in NY? We always referred to it as 'applying the board of education to the seat of learning'

    Seriously though, sometimes someone caring is all it takes. Most kids want to learn and do well, they just need someone to give a shit. I'm glad they've got you P.

    I am in the process of reading Dean Dwyer's book Make Shi(f)t Happen. I cannot recommend it highly enough. Dean's book is about what to do when your initial excitement about the Primal life wears off. He believes that most people need to make huge changes in their thinking before they can truly and permanently change their health. The book contains some really amazing strategies for this purpose.

    Personally, I have hit a mental wall of Bedrock (pun intended). I have gained and lost the same 20 pounds over and over for 6 months. I am in a high wt. place right now and honestly feel awful. I know how to eat and exercise for optimal health. Now it is time to get the mental/emotional stuff worked out.

    I hate the mental/emotional stuff! And I hate it when the body doesn't cooperate with the healthy changes because that just makes the mental/emotional stuff even worse. Ugh, weight loss sucks.

    I have looked at Dean's website but haven't looked too deeply. I like his title though.

    Jon is correct. There are difficult kids at every level. Most of the time behind a difficult kid, you'll find no one. No one telling them what to do or how to act or just to listen and do their best. I'm usually really good with the at risk population, because I am clear about how to succeed.

    I am glad I am not the only one having student issues. My 6th graders are morphing to 7th graders..eww and with it comes potty minds, mouths and bodies. I will be happy to send them on their way even though this has been a much better bunch than years prior.

    Girlfriend I FEEL ya!!!! If I felt any worse I might just say f-it and give up.. grrr.. But instead I am drinking some nasty tasting 'green' juice-concoction and sipping lemon water and gritting my teeth to try and get through a kidney stone issue.. *sigh* why is it that when we were messing up and eating like crap we sufferred the consequences but then when we changed our habits and started eating right we still have to suffer? We should be rewarded for all of these 'healthy' choices!!

    So, my students were lovely today and so was I ; ).

    I was at the grocery store about an hour ago and ran into one of my students and her Mom. We said "hello" and I moved on. This girl is one of the gems. She is obviously happy and well loved. I ran into them a second time. The Mom hung back turned and mouthed to me. "She Loves You." I grinned and whispered "Thanks".

    What a difference a day makes.

    That's a cool story. That kid will remember you the rest of her life. I'm almost 40 and I still think about my old music teacher Mr. Smith.

    Teachers hold a special place in kids' hearts and the mom's cherish that. My son absolutely adores his teacher (he's in preschool) and I love that he's got such a great relationship with her. DH went to school with DS's teacher so he knows her well and we were thrilled to find out that's who his teacher would be.

    Teachers are special people.

    Both good and bad teachers are remembered, albeit for different reasons. It's the mediocre zoo minder teachers that no one remembers. I was luck enough to have mostly stellar teachers in HS and 3rd grade. The rest either stifled me, ignored me, or bored me. The exception to those two categories were the 2nd grade teacher (bitch was not only psychotic, but she tried to force me to be right handed in the early 90s) and the hobo wannabe in 9th grade, as well as several tenured professors in college.
