i was totally fired today. by my friend with autism who was furious with me for singing a song with the class. yesterday i took him to my principals and had him watch as my principals told me that i have to work with all of the children, not just him. i felt ridiculous asking my principals to scold me in front of a student, but i wanted him to have a visual memory to put with what i tell him everyday.
so today when he threw a fit and went into the corner i went over to get him and reminded him of what my bosses said.
"your fired mrs lipstick!" he yelled at me as he threw a block. "fired!"
trying not to laugh all i could say was, "i'm sorry you fired me, but now we are going to clean up the blocks."
