Having a rough time with the repeaters' classes that I teach today. It is obvious why they are repeaters, and some of them are not going to graduate this year, I know it.
Had one guy, a senior, in class for the first time today. He missed the first class, so that means he has an attendance of 50%. Then two of the other seniors skipped today, which means they have an attendance of 50%. I can see it coming. The meetings, the pleading, and finally the look on their faces like, "Hey, he wasn't kidding."
It makes me angry that they are inconsiderate enough to do this to me. I know...I'm taking this personally. But the discomfort of the coming conflicts will be real.
