I Need My Glasses!

I’ve broken my glasses …Well, I don’t really take all the blame … I feel they were rather flimsy… have had to have then straightened many times…But, I liked how they looked and kept them … So that’s the part I will accept as blame…They are going to fix them…solder them I think …or if not all new frames… I’m hoping for the fix!… because they are out of warranty ….I cannot find one pair of my old glasses…so I’m wearing a pair of my husbands …they look so cool…You Know It!… and a little blurry too…but, I have no choice!… My husband says I’m not very careful with my glasses…laying them down anywhere …have sat on them …have stepped on them …don’t use the case they gave me to protect them… Hmm???… I give up… Guilty as charged! … I admit it!… I’m the blame for you breaking …but, I promise to do better when I get you back…I miss you, glasses … Come back soon!

“My Kids”!…
The first student I think about where it concerns glasses is Ron …I met Ron the first day on the job at TJMS… I was new…he was new… and I had no idea what to expect… The first thing he asked me was, “Where can I get coffee?”… Coffee? … Students can’t have coffee… but, thank goodness I didn’t say that to him at that moment… I had learned to say… “I’ll check on that”… As we got to the room I did ask of his concerns… being a Special Needs child… things were addressed differently at times… We found he did have to have his coffee…kept him calm…and a thermos was sent from then on with his Foster Parent‘s consent… She said, “You will like him much better with coffee” … Since we liked ours , we knew she was right!… We found that if Ron didn’t get his coffee or if Ron didn’t get his way…his way of showing his discontent was to jerk off his glasses  and proceed to break them… He went through quite a number of pairs during the years in our class … We probably would have benefited from a soldering gun … The little kit we had that was for glass repair was just not efficient enough for the damage Ron could do!
