Closing the Teach For America Blogging Gap

New Kid in Town

I have a new student in my fifth period class. I was warned that he is a terror to have. Having been kicked out of a previous school he was sent to reform school where he was also removed. I was a little hesitant to meet this student to say the least. However, when he came in my room today I was pleasently surprised. He was very sweet and did all the work we were doing in class, he didn’t do anything that was even slightly disruptive. I am hoping this means people were making him seem worse then he is. My roommates seem to think that he may be a ‘ticking time bomb’ of a student (the ones who will go off without any warning). I hope that I am right about this, time will tell.
