I'm Back!

So, right after my last post, my computer died. Yep, bit the dust. So I haven't been able to post since before school started. I tried to do it on my Ipad, but things went all wonky and I finally gave up. But the hubby just found a great deal on a laptop package and here we are!'

I have to say that this year has been the TOUGHEST year I have had in a long time. For the first half of the year we had a student who was extremely violent and would often run out of class and around campus. Needless to say, establishing routines and procedures was practically impossible. It felt like we were entering a war zone ever morning and we never knew what to expect. I really feel like this has thrown my whole year off. I feel like we lost the whole first half of the year and now many of my kids are so behind due to the constant interruptions of this one student I don't know how we are going to catch up. That student has been placed at another school in a behavioral program and we are hoping will be then placed in a permanent behavioral self-contained unit once his time in this program is finished. Meanwhile, we will soldier on, pushing as hard as we can, to learn as much as we can in the last half of the year.

Now that I'm back, I'm hoping to blog more regularly. What are you guys studying right now?
