As well, a young woman in my grade class suffered a "meltdown" and threatened me in class (not physically) so I kicked her out. This generated parental phone calls to our administrators and a summons to the office for me. I just don't need this!
The administrators were very understanding and the student has been pulled from my class but this incident has generated a lot of work for me as "damage control" which must be submitted to the office tomorrow morning.
Now to the awkward moment:
I was approached by a former student at a Pride event yesterday evening. I was in a semi-public location in clear view of other volunteers, some out teacher colleagues and some GSA kids, presently students at my school.
Horny Former Student had been in several of my high school classes in the late 90s and is now 34 year old. He was short, tubby, obviously gay but kind of cute. After a few drinks (liquid courage) he came bearing down on me.
