I teach a ninth grade remedial math class. Needless to say, my students are pretty rough. Most are serious behaviour problems and many are in Gangs and have been in and out of prison. That being said, today, I finally broke. I got furious and kicked a chair. I didn't kick it at a student but one student interperated it as if I had kicked it at him. Well, he is one of the students who has been in and out of prision. He stood and and started yelling at me. I walked up to him and told him that he needed to be quiet. He got angry and started threatening to fight me. Well, of course I wouldn't fight with him. He is a child. But he got even more angry and pushed his desk at me and it did hit me. He walked out of class saying, "I am gonna kill you and your whole family." Now, I don't think he would do anything to me but now I am afraid for my job. I know I shouldn't have kicked the chair but I didn't kick it any student and it didn't hit any student. I know I lost my temper and I shouldn't have but now, I am afraid that I will lose my job. Please pray for me. Teaching so many gang members and future teen mothers has been very taxing but I really can't afford to lose my job.
