In an effort to find out how teachers are able to cope with ADHD students, a survey was created with SurveyMonkey to help gather information from both parents and teachers. If you are either a parent of an ADHD child, or a the student or a teacher of ADHD children, please take the time (aprox. 2 minutes) to fill out this form. Results will be used in an upcoming article addressing problems faced by students – and teachers- in the classrooms.
The main thrust of this poll is to find out if teachers feel prepared when they graduate from teacher prep courses to handle the demands placed upon them especially in relation to ADHD students. Please feel free to leave any comments either here or on the poll itself in the blocks provided.
The poll can be found at: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/3XKRHLJ

Cramps, colds and everything else is happening simultaneously. And what’s worse, I had to show up at work. I know. I don’t work much, but I am a full-time student, taking a killer load. So my main job is studying.
So back to work, it was really slow ( I am a salesperson). My constant sneezing and coughing didn’t really attract any customers my way either. Not to mention the way I dress.
I hung around some co-workers and we were talking about, I can’t even remember, when they mentions something about how another co-worker constantly refers to me as “terrorist”.
My co-workers didn’t think much of it and continued their conversation. I told them to stop and who is he calling the terrorist again?
My Christian co-worker was honest. He said that my Indian co-worker refers to me as terrorists, almost always. “Yep, terrorist is late today,” “terrorist called out today”. Etc..
(Just note that the fine Indian co-worker isn’t even American)
I was hurt. I was so hurt to be referred to as a “terrorist”. How am I close to a terrorist? Why have a laugh on my expense? On any one’s expense.
I was almost in tears. Angrily I explained to my co-workers that they shouldn’t allow this ignorant man to call me such names.
