Volunteering – 04/30/08
This time I was in a classroom of all girl students, and this day was one of the most hectic. They were constantly at each other for one thing or another and constantly at our group leader (who handled it quite well and by the end of the day had them under control).
One student, however, was perfect all day. She finished her homework, found something else to do when she was done, talked when it was a fine conversation, and ignored when the conversations got disruptive. The other girls eventually ganged up on her (well most of them). They taunted her, called her names, and tried to cut her hair with scissors. We gathered all the scissors and three of the girls had to go for some kind of time out.
An interesting day, slightly more chaotic than usual, but could have been fun if I didn’t feel so bad for the best behaved girl.
