I can't believe what my vice principal did....

Ok...I don't want to write this in case that someone I know would be reading this, but I just can't help it.

My VP came into my class today and asked if it was okay if she disrupts my class. My students were quietly working on their opening activity. I said "sure, of course".

Well then she takes out a huge bag of tootsie rolls from like Sam's Club and throws high in the air two giant full handfuls of them into my classroom all over. All over the desks, under the desks, right at the kids, and everywhere. It was crazy. Then she walked out. Do you know what the 13 year olds did? Probably what any 13 year old would do (or maybe any person)....they went CRAZY. They were jumping over desks, fighting each other, just crazy. I just stood there in disbelief for a second.......I got them settled, and they were pretty good about settling back down after the madness. I would never think someone would ever do that though. Is this crazy? I left for the weekend and never got a chance to ask other teachers if this happened to them.

Maybe she was testing you. "Is he going to ask me what I want to do?" "Are we going to have a conference outside first?" "Is he going to prep his class in any way?"

That was really weird! I suspect it was done to see how you and the kids react.

That is unfair to you. I'd see if other teachers had that happen and how they handled it.

That is very weird. I think that you should talk to other teachers and find out if they know what it was all about.

It doesn't sound like a test to me. If so, he's a freaking idiot. My former P would sometimes pass out treats to students just as a "climate" thing...just to be nice. Surely that's what your VP did...it was just a very poor way of doing so. Very.
