She really likes to work with the handicapped both physically and mentally. I think she gets a lot of satisfaction in helping those kinds of students. Plus no one else wants to sub their classes and she can jobs with those nearly everyday. She does regular classes too. She comes home from a lot of those totally exhausted. Kids today just don't have the respect that one's from my generation had. Some of things said to her have truly been shocking. If you can get honor student classes get them. Those are the best students. They come in and go to work and have very little problems with them. You just have to try out all the schools and different classes to find what best suits you. You may have some rough one's until find those you like best. Best of luck to you.
I COMPLETELY agree with your statement that the lack of respect today is incredible. Third period, I was trying to get the attention of the class, and a girl said "WHAT!?" Very obnoxious, very rude. I was extremely upset, but I held it in. Stared her down for a minute, got my point across fast enough.
The day went ok for the most part. The kids spent most of the day testing my limits, trying me out. I think I did ok, but I'm not so sure I like this high school
