Ludicrously Lawndaling it

13 Feb

“She said she hates me,” a male student told his teacher (telling on the female student standing next to him).

The teacher replied something like, “Don’t worry about her.
I love you. Don’t worry about what anybody else says,
because I will always love you.”

Wow, that was my favorite moment of my tutoring experience
today.

From the moment I entered the building, I encountered
chaos. When I walked into the office where I go before
tutoring, I saw around 15 kids standing there with a teacher,
principal & assistant principal. Apparently, the classroom
had recently descended into utter madness; so the
teacher had to bring a large portion of her class down to the
office & call the parents of the students, one by one.

I heard the principal tell one student that she was going to come to his house! She told another kid, “I don’t know, do you think the school should stay open when you behave like that?” & in response to a tattler, “If she didn’t hit you, y’all got nothing to say. You do a lot worse to her!” & “Nobody sits in my office under no circumstances!”

I saw one boy pick up another boy by lifting up his head.
Not his neck, his head! Scary!

I knew today would be crazy when I went to get coffee
at the McDonald’s nearest to the Lawndale school where
I tutor & I saw a sign on the 1st window (where you pay) that
said this: Students are not permitted in the restaurant
until further notice.

Today, I was given 3 students who each had to be given different tests (that need to have an adult read every single question out loud for the students to answer!) at 3 different levels as well as the rest of the group, who needed to be given the regular lesson plans about the letters L & M…so, I gave everyone the workbooks & instructions & then made my rounds around the room. I went to one tester & asked the questions from section one of the test, then went over the next part of the workbook for everyone & then on to the next tester…that was all I could think of to do…

To end, the same male student from the beginning of the post, when pushed by the same female student, threatened her with, “I’m gonna put a cap in your head and a cap in your mama’s head!!!”
