I just wanted to say that things have been better w/ the kids this wk. Maybe they're getting better settled now that the first 2 mos are over. One boy just refuses to be worked w/ so the P will handle him in her way. When I was working with this one 19 yo today, who by the way, was never horrendous anyway, there was a time when I really talked with him about life, his future, college, jobs, etc. We must have talked for a good 30 min. He's a smart guy who can be a dr if he wants & I told him that. There was a point when my eyes were getting misty because he has such promise AS LONG AS HE STAYS ON THE RIGHT PATH. I'm getting to know all these kids more & more & I actually kind of like it! Now, the school itself & how the P runs things is a whole other story!!!
