We are almost to the end of the 4th week and I am just.... well to be honest blah!!! I can't seem to connect with this class or their parents. This group as a whole grade level is very chatty, aggressive in their behavior, immature. We as teachers are having a very hard time managing this group.(not just me it is all 6 of us) This group is VERY boy heavy and they are immature to say the least. When talking to all the teachers the birthdays are mostly early spring to Sept 1. Which means young!!!!!! And there seems to be NO accountability at home for anything. They expect me to practically breathe for them. Not one of them can do simple basic tasks without having to be spoon fed the directions. And the playing with their hands, picking their noses, making noises are about to drive me insane. I think even the Pre-K kids are better behaved than this bunch of kinders. My dealings with parents so far have not been that great either. First one texted me about her daughter not drinking enough water, asked if she could send a water bottle. I told her that I don't allow waterbottles but I will allow her child a drink anytime she needed one. Apparently that answer was not good enough because she called the principal the next morning and I was sent an email that said I was to allow her a waterbottle at her desk. Ok fine done! This was 3 weeks ago haven't seen a waterbottle yet!!!! Oh she was supposed to go to the doctor to get a note saying she needed this so called waterbottle, haven't seen a note from the doctor either. Today, my little one who has not been officially diagnosed on the spectrum but will be, had his poor little world turned upside down at the end of the day when his schedule was changed by Mom who by the way should know that change is NOT good. He threw a major fit at the end of the day. Then the straw that broke my back. A text from a parent who said could you send a pencil home with her kid tomorrow because all they had was pens oh and please make sure it's sharpened. Ok before I'm run through the ringer about the pencil I know this kids parents can afford a 1.00 pack of pencils from the dollar store and a sharpener. I tired!! I'm cranky! I need a vacation and it's only day 17!
