The Bipolarlity of the Bittersweet

I lost two kids this week. Before you go and get all excited, I didn't lose lose the kids, they merely transferred out. One was at the beginning of the week. It was quite unexpected. It also broke my heart. I have very few "good" kids. He was one of them. Ain't it always the way?

Then I had another child leave at the end of the week. This kid was saying he was leaving since day one. I never fully believed him because to be honest, the kid lies...A LOT. But lo and behold, the sucker was the telling the truth this time. Is it wrong to say that I was glad to lose him? I Of course, didn't show that to HIM. He brought in a card for me and cookies for everyone. It was sweet. I truly wish him well, I'm just glad his wellness will no longer be my responsiblity.

So now, I have a whopping total of 17 children in my class. This makes me nervous. I work in a very transient district. So if kids can leave my school, new kids can just as easily be shipped to us. And where, pretell, do you think that a brand spanking new third grader might get shipped to? You do the math.
