The End

This is the last day this school will be open.

This was one of my students last journal entries.
——————————-
I knew this school was not the place for me. Everything seemed different. I basically stayed to myself. I really didn’t like coming, I hated this school. Me and my mother’s relationship was trying to improve, things were getting better for me. A couple of months went by and I’m still here. It’s been almost a year! I recently just found out that this school is closing next year and it’s like my dreams are crushed, because this is no ordinary school this is a home and it’s full of family. I’ve gotten my life back on track and my behavior has improved. Me and my mom has a better relationship and I’m doing great for myself.

In the beginning my life, like water going down the drain, I finally pulled the plug and all my troubles are gone. I love this school at first I didn’t like it, I really never knew how great it really was. I should’ve always listened when I hear the phrase, “Never judge a book by its cover.”

This is the last post.
Time to clean out my classroom.

New Swag

One of my seniors walks into my classroom and notices my haircut:
—————
N: Mr. C you look different.
K: Yeah he got that new swag.
N: He look totally different.
Mr. C: You like it?
N: Yeah.
Mr. C: I dig it too.
