I was cleaning up, getting ready to head home, when I heard a commotion outside my room. I’m right next to the PE area, and there were about 200-250 kids out there in that typical whirlpooling action.
I moved in, looking for the center, asking the kids I knew to move away and break it up. Another teacher did the same from the other side. Eventually, enough others showed up that the crowd dispersed, and we had enough people to keep them moving in different directions once off campus.
When I got back to the room, someone had ditched a pair of scissors right outside my door.
I’m glad that went as well as it did.
