simmer down jones

i've mentioned before one of my students. he's the one who said I had a big butt. when his mom's is ginormous. he's the kinda kid who is sorta rotten to the core. he doesn't want to be liked, he definitely feeds off of negative attention. for the most part, I try so hard to ignore him & just give him positive feed back. He's also an aggressive little son of a gun, with the other kids. constantly making kids cry with his words or fists. well, today I kinda snapped in my patience with him. he announced to the class this morning that he doesn't like me, for no good reason. seriously, i had done nothing to him. and he was looking for laughs. he didn't get any, cause lets face it, my kids adore me. (i sent him to think time for being disrespectful) then, at lunch recess, he made another little girl cry for something i'm not sure of, and then when her teacher got after him, he told her she sucks. another teacher. oh boy. if he were mine, at this point his life would be in danger. i wrote him a white slip, which at my school, copy goes home & to the principal. there's an escalating punishment for numerous white slips. i also wrote a note to the office & said, "do something with him right now. he needs a lunch detention or something!" alls i know is that at this point, if they do nothing, he better watch out, cause i'll be dishing out some pretty steep punishments. i'm so sick of his sassy, little smart ass ways. he's just a jerk. and you know what? i don't even care that yesterday was his birthday. we hadn't made his birthday cards yet. and i'm so tempted not to make them for him today, either. maybe on another day when he's not the most offensive thing on the face of this earth.

and get this: for the boy who is the biggest bully in my class, probably even second grade, he's a big fat cry baby when someone does something to him. that's why a small part of me feels just for ignoring his birthday for the rest of the day. oh & i've also sent him to the time out desk for the rest of the day and told all of his classmates not to talk to him for the rest of the day. if he can't be nice, ignore his little snotty butt!

help me come up with a good punishment for this little shit

UPDATE: The assistant principal brought him down, he's spending the rest of the day in in-school suspension. and if he cops an attitude tomorrow, in-school suspension again!

ooh, chicky. i don't know how you have the patience for him. i'd be administering beatings on that kid.

still, part of me feels sorry for him. he must need something he's not getting at home. makes me sad.

Hayley said...

i totally agree to that, which is why most of the time, i'm more patient with him. but good hell... he's shot himself in the foot today. even when someone's missing something, it doesn't excuse acting like an asshole to everyone else!

It's so hard when they are such jerks to everyone else -- you can't allow him to take out whatever is frustrating him on everyone else. (teachers included -- or maybe even teachers especially!). But I feel for him too. Sigh. Hard situation.

Jori said...

You are patient. I think I would be yelling all of the time. It does sound like he has problems at home, but you're right he can't treat other people badly.

Heather said...

You do get your share of little crappers, don't you?? LIke everybody else said, he is missing something, but hey he doesn't have to take it out on you. Hang in there, and thank heavens for the principals office!

what a little turd. When it's continuous like that it's impossible to stay nice. He needs some punishing. Something has GOT to be going on at home. Or maybe he's just a sociapath in the making.

This is why I have no desire to be a teacher. I'm sorry other than a good kick in the arse, what can you do?

Kristi said...

Holy Schnikeys--that kid is a big tit. My word. I'm sorry you had to put up with him. Hopefully tomorrow he'll show up with a little more respect for the GREATEST teacher ever :)

Mom said...

Hopefully tomorrow he will come in with a new attitude. Glad the office is helping out here.

Kristi called him a big tit. haha. He probably likes em too.

Melissa said...

Yeah...good luck with that one!
