Walking in Freedom

Miscellaneous musings along the way

Walking, Talking Bathroom Pass August 31, 2009

Yep, that’s me!!  On Friday, we had a lock down for all of the 7th and 8th graders due to persistent behavior issues throughout the week.  The students were distributed in four rooms and stayed in the rooms ALL day (even for lunch!) … except when they had to use the bathroom, that is.  They had to have an escort, so I spent the majority of the day walking back and forth to the bathroom and talking with the kids about the lock down.  It was thrilling, let me tell you- haha!

It actually wasn’t too bad.  It gave me a chance to talk with them a little bit about why there were doing book work all day and what they would rather be doing.  Also, I scored some major points with the kids because I was basically their ticket out of the classroom.  When I walked in a classroom, they would look up excitedly and say “she’s back” and start raising their hands to be  drafted for the next bathroom group.

Overall, they were well behaved on Friday- almost sedated- haha!  We’ll find out this week if the lock down accomplished its purpose.  This week, we’ve regrouped the classes so that 7th and 8th graders will be mixed together and we’ll have 2 all boys glasses and 2 all girls classes.  Stay tuned to find out how this goes… 🙂
