Lurker joining here... I teach 3rd grade. In our grade is a boy with some extreme behavior issues. This kid this year so far has injured every adult he has worked with and many kids. His salvation is nothing so far has been extreme or frequent enough to warrant changing his placement beyond half-day self-contained. Today, I found out the parents are requesting he be moved to my room and that my principal is seriously considering this. I know we all have those kids now and then but... I'm 6 months pregnant and this kid's preferred method of attack is headbutting in the abdomen. So, forgive me for being a wuss about this, but I'm worried about bodily harm. My principal says just sticking to his plans will prevent an attack and I might get lucky and not have him ever come after me...but this doesn't match past patterns. I'm on a contract that will be detrimentAL to break, but I'm very scared of this kid in my classroom if the move is made.
