Serious Question

Watching the news – asking myself if I make a difference each day I go into my classroom to teach. The majority of my students don’t listen to a word I say. At the end of the day when I think about a crazed gunman or in these crazy days, a crazed middle schooler, with a gun coming into my classroom – would I take a bullet for a student who called me a dumb bitch three days earlier? What would you do?

  1. I have thought that myself... And I think the answer is still yes. In the heat of the moment, you wouldn't think about what that little !$%^ had called you, you would be all in protection mode. Hopefully, we will never have to find out.

    Hey, I just put up my review of No Teachers Left Behind on my blog and on Amazon.
