Manish - Post 3

Overslept by one hour on my last nap. I got up to turn off the alarm and then sat back down on the bed for what I thought would be a one second breather...obviously not. Lesson learned, stay away from the bed, it will get you! I find it odd that I woke up naturally just one hour later considering how little sleep I've been getting. I'm not discouraged. I'm still on track, just a little hiccup.

The Joys of Being a Mentor...

On Princess Posts

So, today I started a new class called TEAMS. In this class there are only four of us and we are all mentors to the kids doing online learning or currently failing classes. This itself wouldn't be so bad, except for the fact that I don't really get along well with any of my other mentors. Also, the kids in these classes are working on a large variety of subjects and what do I do if I don't know how to help them?? Another issue I have with this class is the fact that we have to be to school an hour early for class. This wouldn't be that bad, because we only have to mentor 3 days a week, but the days we aren't mentoring we still have to stay in school. I don't understand why though. I mean, we have a large variety of hybrid classes for which kids can sign themselves out and leave school, so why can't we do that for teams?

Another issue I have is how harsh all of the teachers of these kids are. I mean, We've been here for 15 minutes and they have already literally duct taped a girls mouth. I know they have to be harsh with these kids in order to get them to do the work and everything, but can't they be a little bit nicer to these kids? No? Okay.
