....and it had it's ups and downs.
A, the little boy I'm working with, was great the first day, but then he started to test me. That was a bit frustrating but I knew he was just trying to see if I was going to be like his other teachers, who hold him accountable for his actions, or his mother, who does everything for him. Well he soon found out that I was not like his mother, but his other teachers.
Thursday was especially frustrating as his mother came into volunteer and proceeded to focus solely on A and not the other kids. I wasn't the only one frustrated, the teacher of the class is going to have a meeting with mom next week to discuss this situation and hopefully she'll either get the message and start helping all the kids or decide to not come in at all.
Friday we had a fantastic day with A doing all I asked him to do! I was so excited I darn near did back flips. Well okay I couldn't have done back flips if I wanted to, well maybe I could have but I would have ended up in the hospital...lol!
So now that I have the first week down and am feeling more comfortable I think this is going to be even better than I had hoped. Now if only I could get on permanently instead of for just this semester, then everything would be perfect!
