Well…

December 4, 2014

I know it has been a while since I have posted. I feel like I have been saying that a lot when I post. Most of my posts have been to share the unusual and weird things that I have experienced. As I teach on when discussing the media, news is what is different. Now that I am in my sixth year, there is not much that is new and exciting, and since I no longer work in the middle school jungle, things are a lot less crazy.

Except for today…

When I got punched in the face.

Long story short, I was walking down the hallway and a fight broke out right in front of me. The general rule is that you don’t get in the middle of it. I hesitated and no other adults came and I had to do something.

Since it was a girl fight, I was hesitant to stick my hands in there and start grabbing. I finally got in and it took a while, but I got them separated and was holding on to one girl and the other girl came back for more. She missed and the punch landed on my eyebrow. Judging from the force of it, she was pretty angry.

My response was to yell out, “oh, hell no. You just assaulted a teacher.”my students were laughing later about the second line, but I wanted to let her know what she did, hoping to stop her.

I got them separated and once they both got to the office, the girl who hits went after the other girl again

Guess what, it was about a boy.

I think I have more street cred now that all of my students saw it. I have been checking Twitter to see what they said. Text me if you want to see my favorite Tweet.
