2012-2013 School Year: Can you say challenging?

Posted: September 7, 2012 in Uncategorized

ImageImages like this one will be the norm this year.  Forty-Five students in a classroom is something that I have never seen before, nor should it be.  However, like many things in life, you get dealt a hand that is out of your control.  How you handle adversity truly defines who you are as a person.  My main objective as an educator is the form powerful relationships with my students that will, hopefully, allow me to motivate and encourage their success.  The challenge this year:  can you form meaningful relationships with 200 plus students?

I’ll let you know the answer to this question at the end of the school year.  In the meantime, everyone needs to step up their game, which starts with me.  “We’re all in this together” should be the running theme this year.  Communication is key, so, more than any time in your educational career, please advocate for yourself!  Take care, and despite all of the obstacles, have a wonderful year!!!

    Mr Theriot,

    I love your photo and comment regarding the challenge. I spend a lot of time with multiple students in that photo (including my son) and they indeed can be challenging but so much fun. I believe that if they are engaged, they will be a team player, on your team. If you need any help this year . . . give a shout out to the counselors office and ask for volunteers available on Friday. I am one of those . . I hope that you spread your goals for attacking the challenge with other teachers in the same situation!!!

      Thank you so much. It will definitely take the whole BHS community to rally together to make this year a memorable one despite the lack of resources. I am more impressed with my colleagues. They are dealing with the same class sizes in classrooms much smaller than mine. PE classes are up to 60!
