[quote user="andyeyebrows"]on my way to work this morning......
i guess it WAS worth getting up at 5.30am!!!
I get up at 4:30 am and don't see anything close to this beautiful. I used to when I lived in Wyoming/Idaho, but not now in Boston!</p>
i think getting up at 4.30am would be the killer!!!
great news about the job though! well done! it sounds a bit like the job michelle pfeiffferererffer was doing in the movie Dangerous Minds.
That's funny, I never thought of that. Dangerous minds is not too far off from what I'm currently doing except Pfeiffer's character is a way better teacher than me.</p>
My biggest bummer today was finding out about one of my students home life, although the more I get involved, the more horror stories I find out about. I'm not sure howprofessional/legit this is, but by not using names and not telling you the name of my school,I will let you know about this one student and re-assess if I should be talking about this here.</p>
I have a female eighth grader who is quite large, maybe close to 250lbs. She has a large chest. I found out today, through her social worker, that her father has a crack addiction. Most nights her father puts her on the corner near her home and charges guys $2 to touch her chest. The $2 then goes towards his habit. </p>
They are in the midst of trying to catch the guy in the act and have DSS remove her from the home, which will not be easy on anyone.</p>
This is darn near par for the course for most of my student's home lives.</p>
Thank your parents for a job well done, even if you think your home life was awful. Hopefully none of you had an upbringing such as this. I actually wrote my parents a thank you note, the other day,for how they raised me and I turn 36 this year!</p>
It breaks my heart and takes a lot out of me emotionally. The gym has been my therapy and savior for staying sane!</p>
