Middle school children and drama
There is more drama in a middle school than on any of the housewives’ reality shows, or the Kardashians. These kids could rake in the ratings. Before 10:00 a.m. eastern standard time, we had broken up a couple of fights, lives were threatened, and emotions really flew high. We still have two hours left, holy smokes Batman. We also had guest from a local college visiting today. What excitement for them to see! Every day in the life of a middle school teacher needs to be the title of my next book, but I am sure it has been done. Middle school children are from a different time and era. We do not understand their lingo, we do not understand the decisions they make, and we spend way too much time trying to change them. Changing them is not an option. Not to say they will never change because they will. Most will be for the better and some for the worse. My husband and I had a conversation just the other day about homosexuality. I think that a person does not choose his/her sexuality. My husband disagrees and feels that something happens in a person's life that leads them in the direction of homosexuality. I guess the same could be said for career criminals, as well as CEOs. But what, where does it all come together, or in some cases, how does it all fall apart?
