Second day of teaching:
I found out today that about half of my kids thought they passed the eighth grade last year and found out only weeks ago that they didn't and they had to repeat it. Well, that explains how pissed off they all are in my class.
Ugh. I just don't know about this system. It is pretty messed up. I don't remember it being this way when I was a kid, and I went to a poor school. Maybe I just didn't know.
But things are good. I actually kind of like what I am doing, although I spend much of my day feeling uncertain and awkward. But I think I will get the hang out it. ¶ 7:11 PM
