I agree with Thordau. I like to have a standard answer for a lot of things. The kids don't need to see you struggling with how to handle the situation. That's how things get out of hand. Standard...

In my first year of subbing at this school, I...

Any time some one is mean or has a big ego it screams insecurity to me. People act that way to me and I think "Who am I that you have such a need to impress me?". No, they don't realize that they're...

I think the issue is laziness instead of legal or privacy. At least it seems that way at the school I sub at.

Let's see, over the years there's been the hearing impaired girl whose desk sits...
