I have had a day that seemed like it would never stop. A student of mine with a bladder problem was bugging me to go to the boys room in the middle of the math lesson. I kept trying to hold him until I was done teaching. Well, I finally gave in the 8th time he asked me. This student is the nephew of an administrator and a known behaviour issue. I told him he had two minutes, and if he wasn't back in time he would be in trouble. He often uses the bathroom as an excuse to get out of class. Remember this is a third grader. This child goes to the bathroom, students of two other grade levels happen to be in there too. Somehow my clothespin bathroom pass that was secured to his shirt when he left my room wound up being flung around the bathroom. It lands it on the toilet where my student proceeds to pee on it. hmy: My student fishes it out, doesn't wash his hands and comes back to my classroom and hangs it on hook next to the door. Meanwhile I don't realize that it is soaking wet (with pee). It drips all over my signout clip board, and all over the passes. Later, I hear a little knock on my door. Its a first grader who has come to tell me what happened. I ask the kid if it was true and he denied it all. I point out that my pass is wet so he must have done it. Another stucdent, a second grader comes up to me in the hallway while we are having this discussion and tells me the same story. So I wrote the child up and sent him to the office with an aide and a write up form filled out. I followed our procedure. Ten minutes later he is sent back to my room.No punishment. The principal wrote warning on the slip and sent it back. So I spoke to the parent this afternoon and all they could do was laugh. I had to disenfect my whole classroom. I stayed two hours after school today cleaning because I couldn't bare the thought. My classroom smelled like urine all afternoon. I'm talking pee dripping down the wall off the pass here! My hall passes were ruined for the second time this year by this child. He wasn't punished because he is a family member of administration? What am I supposed to do? Clearly he must think he can get away with murder now.
