I'm working on this project which involves kids giving up their lunch period one day a week. I approached one of the young ladies in the group and told her we were going to start this week and that she could bring her lunch up to the room we would be working in. She just looked at me and said, "But Ms, I love my lunch period."
I know how she feels. She's is a lovely, hard working young lady in the bottom third of the school. She has a full academic load and it is hard for her. And now, I am going to be stealing the one period she has to relax. I'm going to bring the kids donuts and try to make it fun but, work is work. I hope she doesn't start hating me.
