I had a pretty tough first few days of school. I have 2 students who have behaviors that are very difficult to handle. One boy has ADHD pretty badly, and he hasn't been on his meds. He wanders around the room, will not do any work, and is defiant when I try to speak with him. I also have a girl in my class who is new to our district. She has been from school to school, and has numerous evaluations in her file. Past teachers have written narratives about how she has been suspended from school and kicked out of class for her aggression towards other students, inability to follow directions and rules, and she is very low academically. She talks constantly, and when I tell her to stop, she laughs hysterically. She will also get up and wander around the room aimlessly in the middle of a lesson. She has not participated in any class activities. I am trying to set up a meeting with my principal. Of course, I will meet with parents and my school's building consultation team. Until then, what can I do to survive?! I cannot get through even the shortest lesson without these two children wandering the room and yelling at me. Not to mention the 3 Title 1 kids that need extra support, 1 other special ed student, and 3 other students going through the SPED referral process. I almost started crying the other day right in front of the kids because I was so frustrated.
