Often when students are "in trouble" and sent to the office, they end up sitting there for a great deal of the day either waiting for an administrator to talk to them, or waiting for a parent to pick them up, or (like today) they are in a kind of in-school suspension. The problem is that our administrators are rarely in their office, and the secretary, clerk and I end up babysitting these kids until either the end of the day or the parents come for them.
Today we had two boys who were just having way too much fun for kids who are supposed to be in trouble. :angryfire I told them about 100 times to sit down, but next thing I know they are up and playing around in the office. I wanted to pull my hair out! Next thing I know the special ed kiddo that I have posted about before (entitled Improper Supervision) waltzed into my office, and it was not even lunch time! I manage to drag her back to her class and her teacher is there at the chalkboard like nothing had happened. HE DID NOT EVEN REALIZE SHE HAD LEFT CLASS!
I just keep telling myself...26 days of school left. Pray for us all to hang on!
