Bad Day *Skip If You're Already Depressed*

The day got horrid, and I've ended up in tears three times since classes ended, once while I was still in school. Fortunately, I'd gotten level before a parent brought her son in...He has an A, but wanted to drop the class. His mother didn't think it was smart, as he is borderline autistic and needs a small, controlled class... I signed his slip, but she was not in favor of it and is making him take the book home tonight so she can look it over better, (and they can talk some more.) I told her all the good reasons off the top of my head that I could think of why a class of seven that is well-behaved would be better than a class of 25 with no special support happening... I also reminded everyone that his more severely autistic older brother ended up in the exploratory class he took with the highest grade in the class and a perfect paper on his final...

She said, "We can always just throw the sheet away if we decide not to do it."

I'd pointed out that Spanish was like chocolate ice cream - you either like it or you don't. (I did not think to say that sometimes you don't like things at first, but later, learn to enjoy them. i.e. me craving spinach... which as a child, I DID NOT like.)
