Rescuing students

Spread the love

I took them to every air-conditioned space I could find. Parents kept calling them out. The two obviously pregnant girls were gone by my last class. They should never have come in the first place. This was a crazy day to hold school. It’s nearly 8:00 at night now and it’s 89 degrees, still too hot to walk the dog. My classroom was in the nineties and muggy to boot. I was honestly unsteady on my feet by the end of the day and my judgement was clouded. In retrospect, I doubt I was in condition to drive home.
