A Thought I Had Today

I’m not trying to make light of how anyone does their jobs, or how things are handled above me.  But, I have to say I was alarmed to see five adults talking to one young middle school student this afternoon.  Three of those adults were local police officers.  

And of course, I have no idea what was going on...but I have to wonder how why it takes so many police to deal with one student.  

My class sizes range from 16 - 26 and for the most part, I'm in there all by myself, or with one other teacher.


  1. Makes you wonder how that student felt having 5 adults looking down on him/her.

  2. Teachers are definitely underrated.

  3. That's true. Law enforcement has a clear plan for back up support, but that's often not the case for the classroom.
