Too Much Information

Middle schoolers are way more fun virtually. Things that are annoying (or worse, disruptive) in person take on a certain whimsy online. 

Friday. I was covering a special ed middle school English class. Out of nowhere, a student turned on his microphone and announced, "I pooped my pants!" 

Me: "Thank you for sharing???" 

Then he turned his microphone back on to apologize. Apparently little sister took control of his computer to...? Perhaps she was trying to embarrass him. 

Mission accomplished.

  1. Some family is going to be short one little daughter, I suspect. As an only child (and a mother of an only child)...so happy I was an only child. I can see why you are a teacher and I am not. I probably would have lost it, laughing, but I actually feel for all the families stuck at home with little children finding new ways to torment their older siblings.

  6. Oh well, by the time he gets to see his classmates face-to-face again, they will probably have forgotten...
