Government. Seniors. They filed in, took their seats, and waited for the bell to ring.
A girl seated in the middle of the room looked over her shoulder at the three boys seated behind her.
"I don't like this."
I didn't set the seating chart. It's the third week of school, so these sorts of things should have already been worked out. But we had a moment, so I asked.
"Do you normally sit in the back of the room?"
Student: "No. But I don't trust them."
Um, okay. I didn't see a problem. It's not like they were going to attempt anything. Besides, I was at the front of the room, and I could see exactly what those boys were up to. If they tried anything, I would catch them.
So, I told the girl I'd keep an eye out. She'd be safe.
"Thanks. I've got your back, too."
That's nice to know.
