In my seven years of teaching I've never encountered a group with so many problems. They're as low academically as humanly possible, they are so many mental health issues, there are more behavior issues than I've ever seen before, and there's so many of them (I've been at 33 for most of the year). I've been saying all year that there will be no love lost at the end of the year when I say goodbye. Now that there are only 7 days left, that's totally different. As hard of a year as I've had, I've never been this attached to a group of kids. I adore every one of them and don't want to let them go. No question or problem here, just wanted to share this thought with people who would understand.
