Missing Kid

That’s another thing about the life of a teacher—searching for missing kids in the bathroom.

I found R. He says he was not on iPad because it had no power. But with R, it’s hard to know the truth.

A sixth grader new to our school. He’s already been suspended for a week from the residence hall for threatening a fellow with a plastic knife bought online at TaoBao.

Burping and farting in class. Consistently late. Unprepared.

Right as he was finally making his way to our assembly, 20 minutes late, a principal saw him in the hallway. I let her know how I was retrieving him. It’s probably best she saw him. Let her see his transgressions firsthand.

Yes, maybe, it was constipation, as he later told a colleague. But with R you never can tell.
