Why did one of my handsome, precious student adolescent jewels refuse to do classwork and decided to use non-standard English, age-inappropriate language when a colleague and I asked him to pick up his paper off the floor? (He knocked it down- tantrum?)
No. He proceeded to say, "I ain't doin'sh$t!" after we told him to pick it up)
RECORD SCRATCH moment...
The room is still. My other students (mouths agape, eyes larger than melons) stare in ultimate disbelief.
Now, many of you all know me somewhat or your prayers to God that I don't lose my cool and turn into "Woman without Sense".
I took a deep breath (as he probably noticed my angered, peering expression) and he walked out of the room with his belongings.
(moment of silence as I prayed for God to allow me to keep my cool and my JOB)
Final Resolve: His parent was called, he was referred to an administrator, and the class continued in bliss...
