Ok, I am going to vent a little bit, but I am in such a horrible mood. It seems like all day I have been dealing with attitudes. 2nd period, I had a kid who just out right laughed in my face when I told him I would take away a toy he was playing with if I saw it one more time. Then in 3rd periiod, one of my students refused to work. She ripped up her paper and sat with her arms crossed. She proceeded to tell me that she had already done this work twice before (since I am the tutor, these students come to my classroom from the English classes). I told her that she needed to do it, that's why her teacher sent her to me. Well, I finally wrote her a pass and wrote the teacher a note letting her know that this student refused to work (and I don't want them in my classroom if they aren't going to work). Ok, moving on to 7th period. I had a group of about six 14 year olds who just wanted to talk, talk, talk, and make rude comments, say they don't understand when I just finished explaining except nobody could hear me because they were playing with papers in the binder and laughing and joking with one another. I am seriously comtemplating teaching high school instead of middle school. Some of these kids are so rude, but others are nice, so maybe it balances out in the end. I don't know. I think I am just having a really bad day.
