Friday. Sixth period. On a day that had been drizzly and dreary. For a middle school special ed math class.
They were... interesting...
Samuel decided he wasn't going to do a thing I said. I asked him to complete the practice problem. He refused. I asked him to get out a pencil, he wouldn't move.
He took offense when I stared at him. I told him I'd stop if he started working. Ultimately, I got distracted by another student.
Because it wasn't just Samuel. Ashley didn't like sitting in the back. And Edward was looking at her. So, Ashley was moved. And Edward was talked to for twisting around in his seat. But Ashley was angry at Edward for calling her name, only it wasn't Edward. Nope. It was Samuel.
Did I mention these kiddos had a quiz?
Luckily, the instructional aide was there. She did all the work. I can't imagine how bad things would have been without her being there.
Some hours seem longer.
