With a Crash and a Bang

Buttress had fights resulting in 4 teachers and 1 public safety officer being assaulted Monday morning.

Yesterday afternoon, a firecracker was set off outside my door just after students began leaving for the day. About that time, pepper spray was let off in another part of the building.

Today: I woke before 4 AM. I got up about 4:40, did some exercises, graded some papers, and prepared for my day. The students have screwed up. They've been engaging in low intensity conflict and little cross-border incursions. Guess what: those days of friendly shots exchanged are over. This is war.

And I will win.

Somehow I'm envisioning Tom Berenger in The Substitute...

Little do they know what they're in for.

They'll find out soon enough. I gave out something like 17 days worth of detention today, and some warnings.
