For the first time, I'm not looking forward to school tomorrow. I'll try to give as much details without being too lengthy and revealing too much. My coworker had a student in her class who is a major discipline problem. He doesn't listen, runs out of class, throws tantrums, disrupts other classrooms, etc. Anything you can imagine as being the worst case scenario with a behavior problem this student does. Sometimes their classroom door would have to be locked to keep the student out when he ran. Her students didn't feel safe. She didn't get the support she needed from administration. She'd be stressed and crying all the time. My coworker was told her anger is what sets him off. Anyone at school who's seen this kid knows he's got other issues and the problem is with himself. Fast forward to Wednesday of last week; the assistant principal walks into my room that morning. She informs me of the principals solution to my coworkers problem. Her challenge student will now become my challenge student. A hundred thoughts instantly run through my head. Neither myself nor my coworker were informed of any decision or possible changes. The AP went on to say there was no official decision made, and the P could change her mind. To top everything off I wasn't supposed to say anything to my coworker. I'm not sure the AP was supposed to tell me anything either. I hear nothing from my principal personally. Wednesday afternoon rolls around and our counselor comes into my room. The disruptive student was removed from his classroom due to behavior. He spent time in the office that morning. The P called the counselor to inform me another solution. The student is going to spend time in my room that afternoon. After some back and forth the student stayed where he was since his behavior improved. I still have heard nothing from my principal personally. Friday morning comes, and I see my P twice in the hallway. I get no response after saying good morning. Shortly after announcements the AP comes into my room again and informs me I'm getting the disruptive student put in my class permanently. My new student and I quickly became the talk of school that afternoon. To put it nicely I'm highly upset over the situation. I was honest with the AP when I told her I felt like I'm getting a crap end of the deal for being a good teacher. My class knew something was off that day and bless their hearts they were on their best behavior Friday afternoon. I had to step out of my room because I'd already built up anxiety to the point of crying. Thankfully I work with some amazing teachers and my class was covered for a few minutes while I calmed myself down. I feel both blindsided and slapped in the face. I understand my P was out a lot this week due to meetings, but to not have a face to face with one of your teachers is ridiculous to me. I've spent so much time building a community with my students and feel that's now being taken away from them. Every time there's a disruption their learning time is wasted. The problem hasn't been fixed it's just been moved to a new location. This student makes others feel unsafe. I don't feel it's fair to me or my students. I had so much to look forward to with the group I have this year, and now I just feel defeated and punished. I don't know how I'm going to make it through tomorrow or the rest of the year.
