In response to a confession. It's a public school, so Dad didn't pay to send him here. This is the right school. People always say that- this student is in the wrong school- but changing schools doesn't fix these problems. It just moves the problem to a place where you can't see it. He doesn't meet the requirements for a special day class. His behaviors aren't severe enough, and he doesn't need modified curriculum. (He's actually advanced.) I'm a specialist. These kinds of situations are my job, and I have helped kids like this before. He's making progress. I'm changing schools though, so I only have until the end of the year to do my best. Nothing in my mandated reporter training covers domestic violence, only child abuse and neglect, but I will check into that. Thanks.

In response to a confession. I'm sure you know this, but don't hesitate to report the dad to the authorities. Do what you can and then set a hard boundary. She will, most likely, never leave her husband. I'm just saying this so you can prepare yourself emotionally when she stays with him, even if it endangers her child. You have to think of your other students, too. If he's abusing them, this isn't the right school, regardless of how much his dad paid to send him there; regardless of how much you could potentially help him. What a difficult situation. Keep us posted.

I have a new student with autism and pretty serious behavior issues- tantrums, throwing things, etc. He said something shockingly racist to a classmate this week. I finally met his stepmom, who texted me after their meeting to say their lives are a nightmare because of how her husband raises the boy. She said he is "very controlling." I asked if she was safe, and if my student was safe. She said my student was safe. She added that her husband was a famous game designer. I looked him up and he is worth 20 million. He was sent to this school because we have the right program for him. He went from the wealthiest school in town to a Title I school where he is the only white kid in his class, and he is traumatizing his classmates with his violent behavior and now his racist outburst. I need to help this kid and his stepmom. I think she is in danger. Please think good thoughts for me, so I can help them.

So our company is pretty small and run by a Christian zealot who insists we have a company "character lunch" once a month where we have to listen to our CEO give a mini-sermon about how to improve our work ethics, etc. It's nauseating and we have to attend unless we are on PTO that day. At least it's on company time because if it wasn't, I would NOT be going.

In response to a confession. There are some good things about my job, which is why I have stayed so long. This place is like a boyfriend that is cute and funny, and you have a great time, but you keep having the same fight over and over, until all you do is fight, and you're not having fun any more. You stayed together longer than you should have, because you care about each other, but at a certain point you have make the decision to part as friends. There are things that you will miss, but you realize that this guy isn't the one. That's my job.

In response to a confession. Thank you! So many people are miserable at my job. I've started telling people that I'm looking and no one is surprised except for the person who came to me to talk about how I'm "having trouble getting along." I really like her, but I feel like she has a blind spot around the fact that there are people here that are truly abusive, because they don't treat her that way. There really are some nice people here, but I'm ready for something new.

In response to a confession. Years ago I had a job that I hated and had to wait a couple days before giving my two-week notice when I got another job. My boss commented how she hadn't seen me smile so much. Then I left my notice on her desk and when we talked she said she finally understood why was so happy. Good luck on getting the job!

I have an interview on Monday, and I'm pretty sure I'm going to get this job. When I pass people in the hallway I smile and say hi, but what I'm thinking is "All y'all can go f*** yourselves, LOL. Byeeeeee!" When problems come up I think, "Not my problem!"
