Ok my new class is out of control and well this afternoon I said a no-no to one of my kids. I was getting the class to finally be quiet when one of my girls yells across the room. I looked at her and before I could stop myself I told her to shut up. As soon as I said it I knew it was an awful moment and began apologizing. I used it as a teaching moment for the rest of the class but boy do I feel bad. Of course this also happens to be the same little one that on the second day of school mom was emailing me about how I let her little girl get hurt on the playground and why I hadn't informed her of the injury. I had to tell her I had no idea her daughter had gotten hurt on the playground because she never told me. I even had duty that week so it's not like I wasn't on the playground. Anyway I feel bad for saying the "S" word. I did email this parent right after we came back in the pick up. (She doesn't pick her up daughter) This is going to be a long year in my class.
