First Day Blues

Hi, Friends,
It was my first day with the kids today, and the behavior is worse than ever
(I get to the point). I couldn't let two of my classes in the door (I stayed
out in the hall with them the whole period). My kindies were even
horrendous---I had them put their heads on the desk the whole period. I'll
never get good art work on the boards or walls this year. I am really
disillusioned. Do I let half the class in (the 'good" kids) and leave half
in the hall?!!?! (I can't -- they'll bolt on me!) I've never seen behavior
so poor in all my days of teaching at this school. This is by far the worst.
I truly feel like queen of the baby sitters.
Thanks for reading.
