I’ve been in this refrigerator for 6 months! You’d think someone would have cleaned this refrigerator out by now and found me. I know I smell because every time someone opens the door they say, "What’s that smell!?!?" One thing I can say is a lot goes on here in this school. Any a word of advice to anyone who finally finds me is…

If you have a student who receives special education services, don’t treat them like they can’t learn or they don’t exist. They are actually capable of learning, you just have to figure out their way of learning and teach them. You’d be surprised of what they do know and have never been given the opportunity to share because they are known as the SPED STUDENT.

Did you know Ms. Whatchamacallit is leaving this year because she is feeling undervalued and disrespected by her co-teacher because they don’t want to use her ideas about using technology in the classroom. All she wants the students to do is do paperwork.

These kids are sneaking in here too! lol Mr. Watermelon needs to stop leaving his meds in his bag. He’ll never get better. smh
