    The only mature way to handle an error in judgement is to admit your wrongdoing, apologize, state what you know was wrong, accept the consequences and promise not to do any such thing again. There is no easy way out of a messy situation and you shouldn't look for one. Even good students make mistakes sometimes. Own up.

    alma damage is done

    Dont make the situation worse.
    damage is already done- maybe you can fess up and not take others down with you. Dont name anyone else and just tell what your involvement was. By admitting errors there may be a leniency. What behavior you think SHOULD have been used on that day may also be admitted when confessing. This way it will show you have learned your lesson.

    I have no sympathy for you- I HATE when my students behave any differently when I am in or absent. I wouldnt expect you to behave any differently and think if i was administration, i would make it clear that these kind of behaviors can not be condoned.

    I agree that you need to admit what you did. What is the worst that can happen? If you are as good of a student as you say, then the consequences of your actions shouldn't be too bad if this is your first offense. Everyone does irrational things once in awhile, be glad that you didn't hurt anyone or anything, right? Others know it was you who threw the chair and not a guy, so whether or not you admit it, others know you did it. If it comes right down to it, if someone else is accused, they will tell that it was you who threw the chair anyway. Do the right thing. Take responsibility for what you did and don't do it again.

    Also, you might want to tell your parents if you haven't already. Most parents hate being the last to know and if you do get in trouble, they probably won't be as hard on you. You should probably apologize to your teacher and if possible, the substitute.

    Alma, I am curious, how did things go? Did you own up to what you did, and what were the consequences last Monday? I really couldn't add any more advice than what these other posters said, but just wanted to see if you took their advice and what happened afterwards.
