Monday January 25, 2016 – Teachers, May I Have Your Attention, Please? Pardon This Interruption.
Remember when class room instructional time was interrupted by multiple daily announcements over the loud speaker system?
Pardon this interruption, Teachers. May I have your attention please? This is for all K-12 Educators, including but not limited to really good classroom teachers, technology coordinators, principals, assistant principals, supervisors, and central office administrators.
From the January 23, 2016 Bryan Eagle – plus all over social media
An eighth grader in a Texas ISD had to serve a day in suspension for carrying a friend having an asthma attack to the school nurse. He “was reprimanded because a teacher told him not to leave class.”
The girl had trouble breathing and fell to the floor. “The teacher contacted the nurse and awaited an email response.” THE TEACHER SENT THE NURSE AN EMAIL??? WTF? There is a child/student/person lying on your floor unable to breath and you sent an email to the nurse?
The teacher said “the boy said an expletive about not waiting for email and carried his friend to the nurse because he feared the girl would die.”
I hope if I ever fall on the floor unable to breath that the eighth grader is there and not the teacher. Have you not passed your test to obtain certification in Common Sense?
Here’s what I’m thinking – the teacher should be suspended as in, without pay. But as Ron White says – “Can’t fix stupid.” Too bad it teaches our children.
PS – Girl OK and later sent a TEXT stating such.
