I am a ninth grdae teacher that has been teaching for 8 yrs. I must say that this year has been my most trying one yet. i love teaching and my students. I have been looking for other educators to reach out to for assistance. I have always been able to connect with a class and enjoy my job. This year however the students seem disconnected and I feel very disocuraged. Upon speaking with others this particular class experienced a similar issue in MS. Any ides on how to reach a group of kids that are disconnected?
