Hello All, Had a thought when responding to thread on playing solitare while subbing. I personally think anything distracting you from the kids is not acceptable. So what about phones? Have we become so obessed with our cell phones that a law must be passed, and strictly monitored to stop what I see is sheer madness in the schools? Teachers walk away and talk on phone. Teachers stand in playground and talk on phone. Teachers wearing bluetooths, carrying blackberries..talking and texting in children's presence. And today, I saw....a cook with her neck crooked, holding her cell phone and talking while carrying 2 trays of hot food into the classroom! :unsure: What can be so important that it can't wait until 12-1 or after 3? What did we do before cell phones? Wait and get the call...or a message in our box. Unless it was life or death, nobody was pulled out or sent calls. Phones in the room could not dial out for anything but in house calls! I know we had this discussion on cell phones and kids...but what about adults?? Would you be willing to toss your cell phone in a locker once you signed in at work?
