We are all feeling anxious as the first day of school approaches ... what is the craziest thing that has ever happened on your first day? Several years ago, on our first day with students, I had a very large class (all desks taken). I had not assigned seats. A student came in, did not like that only front row seats were left, so moved a desk from the front row to the back of the room. When I told him that was not appropriate and he needed to return the desk to the front and sit down, his under-the-breath-comment included the F word. I was FLOORED. We do NOT have students behave this way ... EVER. The entire class was stunned. I told him that I did not allow that type of language in my classroom and proceeded with class. When the bell rang to dismiss class, he apologized. Things were fine for the remainder of the year.
