Yesterday seemed like all my troubles were here to stay.
Two children were really out of sorts. I tried to pick my battles, but when the whole class fell apart from the actions of a couple of students I knew I needed reinforcements to help myself and the class get back on track. Fortunately, a fellow teacher joined me in sounding the battle cry and we marched with purpose to the school psychologist and principal to see what could be done to help these children. Plans were talked about and today I will persevere to put things in place so the troubles will soon be far away for both myself, these children and the class. Some mindfulness and some prayers will be my ammunition.
