How many of you have phones in your room or immediate access to call parents? I don't, but I've taken students to a phone and called parents in the middle of class if their behavior is off the charts--if I have someone to cover for me. I am not allowed to use a cell phone at school. Calling parents immediately would nip the behaviors in the bud. Would it be wrong to have a "phone" in the classroom? I have a broken cordless one from home that I think might be a useful visual tool. Any thoughts?
