Was trying to think of a hook or something interesting to base today's post on, but all I could think of to say was I made it through another day. It wasn't a rough day, wasn't a good day, but I did find out that tomorrow five kids are being added to my class. So, to be honest I'm kinda dreading tomorrow. Because, as things stand I'm barely in control of my classroom and now all of the sudden my class is growing 25%. I do feel like I'm starting to get a handle on things though, and since there's nothing I can do now, I just gotta brace for the worst and hope for the best.

The thing I find most overwhelming right now, besides my challenges with classroom management, is keeping up with all the mandated assessments and paper work. Almost every day there's a new assignment or test or goal I need to introduce to the class. And meanwhile I spend so much time trying to get my class under control, sometimes I honestly just forget how much they need to learn. That is until I check their math homework I see a student missed 120-70.

Still, onward and upward right? Knocked Up came out on DVD today, so I gotta be thankful for the little things like that that are helping me stay sane.
