We waited a bit. When my mom went to a trash can in the hall to throw something away, she crossed paths with a guy I have a small crush on. I was so embarrassed. I pointed him out to my mom.
He noticed I was in the counseling office and turned back to look at me.
During the meeting I stayed quiet most of the time. Sometimes I would nod at some of the recommendations and answer questions that I was asked.
We started the meeting a few minutes late because we were waiting for my teachers to arrive. Not all of my teachers attended the conference. I was relieved that a teacher that I dislike did not show up.
For months, I have been talking about how I didn't want to be in his class. I still don't. My mom asked if we could change my schedule. The counselor told her that we needed a separate appointment to discuss that.
A little while after we started talking, the teacher that I dislike came in. We do not get along in the classroom. I always get in trouble by him. I tensed up and reached for my mom’s hand under that table and squeezed it because I no longer felt comfortable. I turned my back to him and moved closer to my mother.
I was happy that I am allowed to doodle. When I used to draw in the teacher that I dislike's class, he would tell me to put it away or confiscate my work. Now I do not have to worry about it. My educational plan says that I am now allowed to draw without getting in trouble and all my teachers have to follow the plan.
For example, the other day, I was taking slight notes while doodling and I had a revelation about a reference to a movie I watched and pointed it out. Just because I am not staring at the teacher, it does not mean that I am not listening.
Another thing that we talked about is that I will receive more warnings when my behavior is disruptive in class. I am happy about that. It means that I will not be sent out of the classroom as often.
Anyways, that is all I have to share for now.
See you later alligator..
