When it rains, it pours

Julio has left our school.

I wish I could tell you I reacted to this news with the maturity and wisdom befitting my profession, but I am not ashamed to tell you how I actually reacted: by jumping up and down in the lobby after I received his discharge papers in my mailbox. Yes, really. To be frank, when his mother mentioned at one of our many conferences that she was considering transferring him to another school, I did very little to discourage her; in fact, I told her that different schools do in fact handle things differently and who knows how Julio might react to a change in his school environment.

Well, now we know how he would react: by punching someone and using inappropriate language on his first day at his new school, resulting in an immediate suspension. Oh, Julio. I know this is totally taboo, but I do not miss him, or William, one bit.

It looks like your year (and that of your remaining students) is looking better and better. Maybe an early holiday gift?

Seriously, I hope that the other kids in your classroom benefit from the change in the classroom dynamic and actually enjoy their time in your class. From your earlier post, it appears that might be the case.

What ever will you post about now?

You do realize that the first law of classroom placement is that if the most difficult child moves a new child will rise to the role? Enjoy the peace while you can.
