    I know there are a lot of rants on here, so I wanted to give some good news. This year is absolutely fantastic! All my kids are really hard workers, and really want to behave. You could hear a pin drop when I am talking.

    They try really hard to raise their hands, they all want to read out loud even if they can barely read it, and want to please me.

    Now, I had almost all the same kids last year and the year before, but something is different this year. I even didn't hesitate to take out scissors for a project this year. Usually, I am terrified. Any behavior that takes place is disability related and truely not related to kids acting out to just act out.

    I guess third year with the same kids is a charm? :thumb:

    I am finding the same thing true about my class this year. I have some new ones this year and some that I have had for the last 3-5 years. They all seem to have a new attitude this year. It sure is refreshing!

    Awww. :)

    So you've had the same kids for three years? No newbies?? I got two new 6th graders and a new 8th grader this year... But yeah, I got a really good group this year too. Funny how it can change your whole perspective. (Now if only I could get rid of that one psycho parent...) lol

    That's awesome! Glad to hear it is going well for you. It's so cool that we get to have the same kids from year to year and really see the progress and relationship development.

    My most difficult kid blew into the room on the first day and announced, "Miss bethechange! You're here! I'm so happy to see you!" Awwwwwwwww. Melt my heart. It seems he's matured a lot and mellowed out over the summer too. So great!
