I spent a full week teaching 8th grade. One of the young men in the class never did his work and was a regular interruption in classes. Having heard something about his home life, and being aware of his social issues just by watching him in class, I decided to not make his behavior an issue. At least not until the very last day I was there.
Toward the end of the class he laid down on the floor, placed 5 books inside his shirt and started to undulate his body causing the books to come out of his shirt one by one. I have to admit it was well done but this was not Saturday Night Live and it touched a nerve that I could not ignore. I picked up the phone and called guidance who had me send him there. They asked me to write a referral for him, which was the last straw and he got suspended that day. He saw me later in the day and thanked me personally for getting him suspended. I returned to the school to teach other grades but did not see him again.
