Closing the Teach For America Blogging Gap
Sep 20 2010

Today…

…was a shit day. So far this dinosaur thing’s not catching. The rest of the class is slipping.

I hate the idea of sacrificing this one kid to get the rest of the class back on track, but the fact is that I haven’t figured out how to be a good teacher for them AND keep Damien under control at the same time. When I manage him constantly, they aren’t learning, they aren’t being noticed, and it’s completely unfair. So tomorrow, as much as I hate to sit Damien in the corner all day–tomorrow has got to be about the kids in my class who want to learn.
