The Kids that Need us the Most
Every year we will have kids that will try our patience. We will be tested and we will have our bad days, but that is part of learning how to work with these students.
As adults, there are probably times in our lives that we have needed someone to believe in us in order to believe in ourselves. I know I have had that. This is the same for students. When we give up on a particular student, then they often will give up on themselves. The kids that frustrate us the most, are sometimes the kids that need us the most. Let your belief in your students outweigh the frustrations.
I hope that Wednesday's mini-staff development of focusing on a behavior and academic concern of a particular student gave you additional strategies to work with that student. All the strategies listed do not have to be implemented before a referral can be written but you still must follow the Behavioral step form. Even though a referral is written, continue to work with that student and implement the additional strategies.
Have a great weekend.
