What are the worst things your student have done to you / or stories you heard of? the reason for my post is because during my CAHSEE tutoring, (during a snack break) some of the students confessed to some craaaaaazy things they have done to teachers. All of these were news to me, and would have never thought possible. I wished I would have heard them before to be prepared. I was wondering if these things were ever done to me, but they said no, because I never gave them the opportunity. So here is a short list for now - some of it is very gross. - students taking teacher's water bottle / coffee mug and spit in it. They said this never could happen to me because I don't leave my things around and I keep my eyes on them. Plus my classroom is small, so I see everything. But they admitted to had this done several times to some of the teachers and subs they don't like. - double gross: boys rubbing semen on teacher desk, mouse, keyboard, etc. :crosseyed I actually asked them how they do that, they said they just put their hands in their pants, some will come out, then they get up to wonder the classroom and rub it o stuff on the teacher's desk. Nasty !! Now they have never done it to me, because I do not let them go near my desk - in fact I have a bright orange duct tape around my desk and areas they are to avoid, and they know they can't cross it. But other teachers are not so cautious. but now I'm careful not to shake their hands when they offer it. Other things that are not that gross, but just as bad (took me too long to figure out). - Tagging / etching things on desks. Student take the eraser off of the pencils, and use the metal top to scratch graffiti onto the desks. -- solution: glue the separate eraser-cap on the top of the pencils, or give them golf pencils (wood only). Also regular inspections of the desks are good, but it's only working if you do it in every class, every desk, otherwise you'd never know if it had been there.
