I started with 29 students (anything under 30 is considered low). I lost 2 girls (both with the same name) around the third of the way through the school year, and a boy (let’s just say I wasn’t sorry he left). Then I got a boy (Johnny) on picture day. Then I few weeks later I got a gir (Daisy- she is super nice and friendly with everyone, a great person to put new people by). Then I got another girl (friendly as well). Then I got another boy (he had to move schools because his brother had to be moved, so the principal thought there might be trouble – there hasn’t been). Then a few weeks ago I got my 30th student, another girl. She’s friendly, but seems a little out of it.
I’m just happy that all my new students speak English. It is so discouraging to get a new student that speaks only Spanish.
