I have a student that is extremely rude and hurtful to myself and other students. He is the tpye of child that would spit on someone when they weren't looking...or spit in their face. It has been said that this student was asked to call home during a class to tell his mother that he neded a notebook. During that call, the student did not tell mom he needed a notebook. Instead, he told her that the teacher was picking on him and embarissing him on purpose. His mother is the type that will get you fired if you do not go by her every word. I gave this student a zero for not writing his name on an assignment. 15 minuye after school got out, the mother was on the phone trying to get me fired. Have any suggestions for future students?
