Mason's completed another year! And what a year it's been!! This poor guy has been put through the ringer!! This year he taught recovery reading and math which means he had to clean up everyone's mess and desperately try to get the kids on grade level. He has vowed to never do that again... It was WAY too much work and the kids ended up resenting him because his class was the drill it in class. But he survived (well technically he has one more day) and he only had two death threats and was cussed out twice this week. These kids are ruthless!! But I know he's being blessed for working in this inner city school. He said that today at promotion more than one student mentioned him as their most influential teacher. That says a lot!!
|Great job you guys!! The principal Nancy Uxa said that this is the best middle school team they've ever had at Gateway.|
|Boonie LOVED roller skating!! He had this big goofy grin on the whole time. Whenever Mason would stop he asked to keep going but of course he couldn't even stand up in those silly skates that were 2 sizes too big. :)|
