i see this student everyday for 45 minutes in PE. i have to sit her away from everyone else, b/c she can't handle being around other kids without bothering/distracting them. she pulls out her hair, she chopped off her hair last night at home with scissors and then told her teacher that she was going to finish her self hair cutting tonight. she bangs her head against the wall on purpose, she picked up a rock and through it at a well behaved student who didn't initiate anything. today she peed all over herself and the after school care worker on purpose. what worries me the most is that she wrapped a cord around her neck and was threatening to kill herslef. how does a 7 year old child know about suicide? i NEVER knew about suicide that young. her parents completely detached. i think they have given up on her b/c they don't know what else to do. a behavioral specialist is coming to observe her in PE tommorow. i am wondering what is going to happen. as much as she frustrates me b/c she is 1 of 75 other students that my other and 2 coaches have to see everyday, she truly scares me. i don't want her to hurt herself. has anyone ever had a student like this before? this is only my second year teaching so all of this is very new to me.
