One story. Two teens. The best and worst.
A student I used to teach came to my door today, almost in tears. She sat down and told me that her teacher had been disrespected consistently by another student, and she felt helpless. She really likes her teacher, “she is so nice” and she “doesn’t deserve ____________’s rudeness”. I told her that I would go and check on her teacher, who is really nice. And she doesn’t deserve ____________’s rudeness.
Needless to say we are going to focus on the actions of the compassionate and caring student. But we will make note that the nasty student has been moved to my class. We shall now see what she has to offer me.
That is all.
