    because then they'd actually have to think instead of just blindly sending them off to my office.
    Lol, You just said it!

    Teachers are always telling troublesome students: "I get paid to "teach" you, not discipline you! The principle can deal with your bad behavior! I don't get paid enough!"

    "Let the nurse deal with your stomach, I don't get paid enough to tell you to go take a dump, here's a pass, go let the nurse tell you to poop! Here!"

    Hahahahahaha!

    A little off the subject, but I always thought it was ignorant for a teacher to complain to a student about teacher pay. What can the student do about it? How is it the student's fault what teachers get paid? I thought that when I was a student, and have the same thinking now that I work in a classroom. I had a teacher when I was in 7th grade to complain about her pay almost daily and went as far as to tell us to tell our parents to vote for teacher pay raises. It seemed that at my school the teachers who complained the most were some of the laziest.

    Flare, your post #38 helps to confirm my idea that one reason why some students don't do any better in school is that many of the people who work in these schools are not much better off mentally than the students they teach.

    don't get me wrong, i work with some really great teachers, but i work with some real doozies too. Have a teacher that is so germaphobic that all a student has to do is say they feel like they are going to puke and he can't send them to me quick enough. Have some that will send discipline issues to me... send the sleep deprived kids to me too... like what do i do for a tired kid? Offer them a nap? Cripes, i'd have a full office rtc if i did that.

    Oh boy, I can relate to this! Can we add in the teacher who tells me that he needs me to come to his class to do a presentation on hygiene because "after recess the kids smell". All this as he walks down the crowded, student-filled hallway. Ummm... how about coming to speak with me in private and then actually scheduling a time for me to come into the classroom? Or at least stopping to speak to me?

    I am ignoring his "need" until he has the epiphany that he needs to speak to me in a professional manner to receive any professional recognition or response to his 'request'.

    Well I'm sure that method will be constructive for everyone

    Actually, in my experience it has been effective; the class will get taught. Expect a higher professional standard of conduct, and eventually you get it.

    In my health office (where A LOT of kids come to use the facility) my bathroom is off the area where my cots are....I will courtesy flush or run the water at the sink.....but let me tell you, if I gotta go, I gotta go....maybe from being on swim team when I was younger, I learned at an early age that there really are no secrets in a locker room. made the transition to college easy.

    One thing that I noticed when asking students whether or not they used the bathroom, they might say "I peed". In a classroom situation, a teacher is not going to ask a student "did you poop?" as I might ask them. If a teacher would ask that question, and also mention the need to take a few more minutes to just sit for a little while, we would have a lot fewer visits for this.
