11 dysfuntional kids

No,10 dysfuntional kids since the 11th never even comes to class. I'm teaching this after school math intervention for children who score at the bottom of the grid. We are hoping to improve their math skills by offering them an individualized Harcourt math program..... but it turns out they don't want to improve their math skills. They write things like "Freddy loves Jazmina" on their whiteboards instead of doing their work.

I yelled at all of them except for one girl yesterday(who I let go to the prize box), and Peter pointed out that I might as well have fed her to the wolves.

There's always Monday!
