As I am here in the library of one of my two schools I teach at here on this reserve,
there is a kindergarten kid who is in an extreme tantrum, constantly using profanity.
There is an assistant specialist who is here to help him calm down. His anger and
aggression is so beyond extreme that he also released feces in his pants and I can
get a bit of a whiff of it. He was throwing legos a while ago.

He is getting calmer now. The demons are possesing him. I feel really sorry for this
kid. All I can do is pray that there will be a change in his life before his life is over
during his unripened life.

Yesterday this same school was evacuated after a car caught fire from a mechanical
problem (blame it on GM). But today, I am seeing an exrteme psycholigical outburst
from this one kid. It is so bad because of the bad home life that he was born into.

I just asked God to liberate this kid from the demons possesing him into this extreme
aggression.

I am really happy to have National Aboriginal Day off this week. However this holiday was on Thursday
and I still had to come back to work at the school today. This Same Friday as I did every week, I had the
worst behaving students for the last time before the school year ends next week. I was glad that I did not
tell the worst students in the class that they are on the bottom of the totem pole with their grade in
music. Next year they will be in grade 7 and if they get any worse, Lord have mercy.

I only have one more week for the school year and of course you know that by this time, the kids are
all on shut down mode. That is why I am showing them videos, playing games or allowing them to
go on their laptops. At the other school where I teach at they will have only fun days so I won't be
teaching music on those days throughout next week. But by this time next week the kids will be
out of here for the summer, but this does not mean that I will not have some of the same crazy
kids who continuosly behave uncultured, impolite, and obnonxious. So you can say that yes, I have
survived a full academic year teaching First Nations kids on a reservation.

I have decided to stay another year on the contract, and I am expecting more to be cut out
for me. I hope I will be successful because with the way some of these kids behave, I really
don't want to be here for the 2019-2020 school year so I hope I can get a chance elsewhere
in Canada. I really don't want to move back oversease to teach but if I have to, I will.
