There are times when I wish I could just turn off the day, crawl into bed and shut out the world.  It is tough to know the worlds some of our kids have to live in, knowing that their circumstances are almost always beyond their control and that you can only be as supportive as you can.  Part of our classroom experiences are attempts to create safe environments where our students can have a moment of reprieve from the rest of the world, an opportunity to not be worrying about whatever they need to be worrying about the rest of the time.  Sometimes that means giving enough space for your kids not to be worrying about their English assignment and let them just exist for a time.
