Today was the first day in my 7 years of teaching that I wanted to cry! I have a student that has major anger issues. He has been in and out of trouble from the age of 4. Well today he went off on my assistant, principle, and myself. It was a two part episode. One at recess and one about 30 min. later. When I say went off I mean kicking, hitting, scratching (drawing blood) and punching all of us. This student was just suspended a week ago for hitting a student. My question is this... What do other schools do when a student crosses the line like he did today? I am at a small private school with no resources for students with mental issues. (clinical issues) He has been suspended for a day!! I cant believe it, I thought the school would do more than that since this is not his first, third, but fifth physical confrontation. I am NOT dealing with this all year. I refuse to be a child's punching bag. Now I have to dig really deep to muster up the ability to let it all go and move on. This will take serious soul searching. If this happen at your school what would be done?
