You have a busy day within a week that has been not-so busy. Part of that busy day includes a lesson with the girl who you just can’t get to work. Today you still can’t get her to work. You manage to spend much of the lesson talking about work, but no actual work is achieved in a way that can be proven.
You don’t care. She was recently released from a secure unit and has a history of violence. She always smiles happily when she sees you. You know that she uses diversion tactics, but you think this will work in your favour because you’ll win her round and eventually she’ll do some work for you.
You leave work with a bounce in your step after the TA who has the girl [who you just can’t get to work] straight after you, comes to you and says, the girl who you just can’t get to work really likes you, as though it’s a really big thing.
And it is a really Big Thing.
And it makes you remember that you can make a difference and the future maybe doesn’t look quite so bleak now.
You just needed to share that … it will be something to look back on when everything at work gets you down again.
please God bless the girl who would probably stop her chav friends beating you up in a dark alley on a cold night xxx Elsabeth
