Baltimore City school teacher

The Baltimore City school teacher who was punched by a student spoke out in an exclusive interview with WBAL-11 News education reporter Tim Tooten.

The attack occurred at Frederick Douglass High School on the teacher's first day back from medical leave for cancer treatment. It was also the chemistry teacher's birthday.

The educator, who asked to remain anonymous, told Tooten she is recovering from the unprovoked attack that was captured on a cell phone video that went viral online last week.

The teacher said that in her 34 years of teaching, this was the first time a student ever assaulted her.

The mother-of-three and church elder said she has "nothing but forgiveness" for the girl who struck her.

"I actually thought that I had the ability to calm a student down or to talk to them with understanding, and so when I saw this, this was like my worst nightmare," the teacher said, referring to the viral video.

She said it took her a couple of days before she could watch the 14-second video clip that was viewed over 1 million times across multiple platforms.

It just made me want to cry, and when I think about it now, it makes me want to cry," she said.

"I've taught at schools that have had the reputation of being somewhat difficult to deal with," she said. "I don't know why I thought I was invincible, but clearly I am not invincible."

The teacher said she did not know what provoked the girl to punch her.

"I just didn't know. It was almost like, how did I get hit? That's what I was thinking."

She said other students were concerned for her wellbeing after the assault.

"After it all happened, so many students came to me and said, 'Are you OK?"

The educator said if she could talk face to face with the student, she would want her to try and get her life together. "I would want her to get whatever counseling is necessary. I would hate to find out that she became a statistic."

When asked if she would return to teaching, she said her future remains uncertain.

"I would be willing to come back. It's just I don't know if I am healthy enough to come back," she said.

"I'm hoping something good will come out of all of this -- something good for me, something good for Baltimore and something good for that young lady."

According to WBAL-11, school officials refused to say what will happen to the 17-year-old girl. City prosecutors also refused to comment on the student's status.

    It's a damn shame what happened to this teacher . Most kids nowadays lack home training and this is one of the results.

  • Kim’s Original Face

    I just hate watching this video that little man child needs to be in jail instead they are online making rap videos on instagram go look at @moodydaone smh they need their ass whopped. Parents included I hope this teacher is truly ok. It broke my heart seeing this and when she went back after she got hit to try and further explain smh! I would have had to do a parent teacher conference from behind glass I would have lost my job that day!!

  • BeUtFullSoul

    Every time I watch this video it angers Me ! .....this little XY Chromosome Needs to be dealt with!

  • BeUtFullSoul

    Making rap videos?! ?????...ooooooh let me go take a look at this FOOLishness! ????

  • free

    my first inclination is to say throw that b!tch out of the school and onto the streets where she can fight all she wants too but...i'm curious about her life. where is she living? who is her people? what happened to her to turn her into this? i've learned that we have to look deeper sometimes. nevertheless, the school is not a psychologist's office or mental institution or boxing ring. we gotta save the ones that can be saved. it's sad but it is what it is. we are seriously going to have to have resources in our community that can deal with these kids growing up the way they are. white kids just shoot up the fugging school. black kids want to fight everybody. it's sad.

    “I’ve taught at schools that have had the reputation of being somewhat difficult to deal with,” she said. “I don’t know why I thought I was invincible, but clearly I am not invincible.”

    ***

    Exactly. This teacher is upstanding and respectable. There is no reason nor justification for her being assaulted. No teacher, not even Coach Tay who snatched a student’s phone without retaliatory assault, is immune from violently mentally unwell students.

    ***

    This teacher was right to feel invincible because she believed that youth possess base morals and respect for authority. She now knows that is not the case for mentally unwell students like the GIRL student who bullied and assaulted her.

    Our Daily Bread 11/14/2018

    Bound to Encourage

    Let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds.

    Hebrews 10:24

    READ HEBREWS 10:19–25

    The Steven Thompson Memorial Centipede is a cross-country meet unlike any other. Each seven-member team runs as a unit, holding a rope for the first two miles of a three-mile course. At the two-mile mark, the team drops the rope and finishes the race individually. Each person’s time is, therefore, a combination of the pace the team kept and his or her own speed.

    This year, my daughter’s team opted for a strategy I had not previously seen: They put the fastest runner at the front and the slowest right behind her. She explained that their goal was for the strongest runner to be near enough to speak words of encouragement to the slowest runner.

    Their plans depicted for me a passage from the book of Hebrews. The writer urges us to “hold unswervingly to the hope we profess” (Hebrews 10:23) as we “spur one another on toward love and good deeds” (v. 24). There are certainly many ways of accomplishing this, but the author highlighted one: “not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another” (v. 25). Gathering together with other believers as we’re able is a vital aspect of the life of faith.

    The race of life can feel like more than we can handle at times, and we may be tempted to drop the rope in hopelessness. As we run together, let’s offer one another the encouragement to run strong!

    By Kirsten Holmberg

    REFLECT & PRAY
    Encouragement is water to the soul.

    Jesus, thank You for the hope You offer. Thank You for never discouraging us. Help us imitate You by encouraging each other today.

    ****For all the roses esp those who encouraged me just yesterday.

  • FukkFolks2018

    I'm so sick of these wayward kids and their stupid, ghetto parents. Raise your kids better people.

    Blessings to her

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    Me and you both. These parents throw these kids in front of television and keep it moving.

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    Yes

  • FukkFolks2018

    You seem angry over something very minuscule

    Exact type person to hit an elder or birth someone who does.

  • FukkFolks2018

    I had a kid at 17 almost 18. So many of my peers who had kids at the same time let TV raise their kids. Teach them how to read. Babysit them. It's not the way.

  • iWasteTime

    God Bless this teacher. After all that has happened and this going viral she is still concerned for Daniel Danielle. The child is angry and needs more than a classroom teacher can give.
    Someone needs to punch Daniel Danielle and the people who created her in the face though ...

  • FukkFolks2018

  • Shamwow

    The lady was hit because of countertransference, she definitely did nothing to deserve this attack. She’s such a nice woman and it’s soo sad that schools are losing teachers because of the lack of support. This poor behavior in the hierarchy of schools breeds teachers who are numb apathetic and sometimes predators. I recently saw an article about teachers who are a sexual risk to kids get fired and in a short time hired by another school to possibly proceed in their predatory ways. More than often they achieve their goals of preying on a child and have no problem getting a job. This girl is definitely in need of counseling, she’s irrationally attacking people even the ones who are considerably weaker than her. Hurt people, hurt people and I truly believe that the girls trauma started with a woman. Maybe a big reason as to why she’s switching her gender.

  • the guest

    AMEN.

  • MJF

    Period! This is basically it..

  • Shamwow

    I agree and it’s sad. Urban schools leave teachers left and right. I remember on the wire a teacher cared about a student and the assistant principal told him that there will be more; the system is what it is. She basically said stop caring. Caring is exhausting and when one child leaves he’s replaced by even more lost children.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Thank U for sharing.

    I actually thought that I had the ability to calm a student down or to talk to them with understanding, and so when I saw this, this was like my worst nightmare,” the teacher said, referring to the viral video
    ************************************************************

    You keep teaching, and I have so much respect for you as a survivor, a black woman, mother, forgiving woman, and God fearing strong black woman. You as a woman have so many abilities but these NEW AGE MF kids have 0 respect, and at this point she’s not a student he/she is a broken person that doesn’t have value for her/himself, I wouldn’t expect anything more/less from an animal such as this dirty dirty dirty lowdown parentless bastard!

  • the guest

    Point. Blank. Period.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    This is what happens when you raise your kids by sitting them in front of the tv, not talking to them except to yell, and raising them with a hood (in the box) mindset...I feel sorry for the teacher but the student needs to be locked up. In a way I feel bad for the girl too because obviously she has some identity issues going on...most women I know who started "studding" early say they were touched inappropriately at an early age by men...both of them need support but that young woman needs a mentor....hopefully she'll get that in prison...

  • oshh16

    I was just telling my dad and he agreed folk raise children different now.....far too many don't even have basic manners.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    See this is why everyone should be concerned with the way people raise their children. We don't live in a bubble/vacuum. "Not my child, not my problem" logic flies in the face of reality. Children leave the home and enter into society. You and your children are forced to deal with these kids (or adults when they grow up). They eventually end up being society's problem.

    P.S. I thought it was a boy that punched her. Smdh.

  • the guest

    It is sad. Because here is a teacher who has given her heart for over thirty years and this assault has changed her, not her caring heart, but has made her aware of the dangers.

    She truly believed kindness and nurturing could heal all, which it should but it does not. Schools need in house hospitals wings or affiliation with hospitals with authority to mandate diagnose and treatment for violent and abusive students.

    No sane and balanced student punches an elder female teacher in the face or throws a ball at and challenges an elderly male teacher to fist fight. These particular students need treatment.

  • MookieFly

    I fought a teacher when I was in first grade. Got my ass expelled and everything. Of course, there were worse things going on at home that I couldn't fight against. I hope Daniel seeks therapy for their own mental stability because they wont go far without it. I feel so bad for the teacher. Daniel looks damn near grown throwing fist at people smh

  • ClaireHuxtable

    She wanted to score points with her lil classmates by running up on the teacher. "Don't mess wit me. I'm baddd." But she picked a nice elderly lady who she knew would never hit her back.
    If all this anger is left unchecked she will be in prison or d3ad. I'm not glad it happened, but am glad that it can't go swept under the rug any longer.

    This is the type of teacher that doesn't need to be run off. May God continue to bless this dear woman and hope she gets an abundant reward of kindness on This side!

  • Ni Ni

    Nothing is going to happen to the student i bet. I'm surprised they didn't say she had a mental illness.

  • Shamwow

    First your name ? love it, we mustn’t forget that face. I agree with everything she went to be in a mental hospital after the incident, she definitely has mental illness but she’s also manipulative. I guarantee she’s not popping of on anyone. Only the ones who she believes that she can beat up and win. Smh there is always someone bigger and badder than what fake thugs think they are. I hope she is connected to the resources that she need to help her before it’s too late. But then again that would take common sense and, sense isn’t common. ?

    One thing is for sure, I would be talking but I bet you it would be from my

  • Nik

    This is definitely something to think about, thank you. You helped me understand someone I know a little better.

  • FukkFolks2018

    My parents used to tell us this. Remember not everyone is raised like you and your sisters. Bc one of us would get out in the world and see something just so shocking from OUR normal, and be dag on DONE. Go home and discuss it and they would always tell us this. But now I agree with your father. Its an epidemic. And its SAD

  • Realnigga101

    That boy belongs in jail

  • the guest

    No lie there.

    Agree or not agree, I bet there was never teacher assault during times of corporal punishment. I feel sensitive about that and don’t fully agree with it, but there’s something to be said that students would think twice under corporal punishment laws.

  • the guest

    She absolutely should have been arrested. You can’t punch people in the face.

  • Yardgirl

    My cousin was an elementary school teacher in South Bronx. Let's just say it was so bad she took a teaching position at Rikers prison instead of dealing with those kids and their fcked up parents. One threatened her that she was in a gang, my cousin said she was in a gang too, the NYPD. Sad.

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    Soooo you would have beat that juvenile?

  • Nik

    I agree with you but the problem is a lot of the parents have the same bad attitude as the kids. They will tell you to mind your business when all you're doing is trying to help. The village is no longer allowed to help raise the child, which causes these kids to miss out on positive influences.

  • ohdearme

    Oh Lord Rikers is no joke, I have a couple of friends that work in the psych area.

    Yo that place scares the shyte outta me and I only hear the stories. She is a tiny thing too but she says she is safe because she is only working with inmates who want to be in class plus there is security. Not me though, I could not do it!! I watched "Oz" and the show scared me for life *shudder*

    Please go look ? its a mess!!

  • the guest

    Also, poverty has nothing to do with it. Since slavery poor black people have raised dignified and well mannered children. In fact it was once a statistic that poor black children were far more well mannered and respectful of adults in their community than white kids in affluent communities. Used to be when black kids talked back and hit they were acting like white kids. Now it’s become norm in black community. Something is very wrong.

  • ohdearme

    It must be something that small women want to help there, my friends are tiny, 5'2" tiny but they want to help and understand the inmates with psych issues and there are many!

  • SunRiseBlossom

    Wait a minute... You a rose in the rose garden and calling Sandra a "B"?!!! DANG... Must be a thorn!!! Lol...

  • Dowoop

    I'm still unclear about what it is. Could be a boy wanting to be a girl or a girl wanting to be a boy?

  • the guest

    I believe it. I really do. It is the nature of pre teens and teens to test how far they can push boundaries and limits.

    DANG... Now that's BAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Renee Bee

    I worked as a substitute teacher. Jail her! The end!

  • ohdearme

    I would love to know what her parents have to say? They had to watch that as well, until they decide to charge her for assault as she should be, I really hope she's been expelled!

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Bless her smh .... these damn schools smh

  • Nik

    A lot of parents think kids are supposed to raise themselves. I remember telling my mother that she didn't teach me anything growing up. She said that was not her job. My grandparents took me when my parents split. They were too tired and disappointed to fill the parental role beyond the basic needs. I credit my teachers, professors, and coaches with my drive and mindset. Now that I have succeeded my mother wants to withdraw where she did not deposit. I had to forgive her so that I wouldn't stunt my growth.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Throw the book at her

  • Yardgirl

    OMG it must be!! Cuz is about 5'1-2" , but make no mistake she is a little pitbull!! It's a NY thang LOL!!

  • SunRiseBlossom

    Now IF that school supports this child's behavior, by not expelling her... EVERY LAST ONE OF THOSE TEACHERS should pack up their $#!+ and leave because clearly the administration DO NOT care about the staff!

  • ClaireHuxtable

    I never needed to be paddled. I was scared of adults when I was growing up l0l! I knew about the severe consequences I had waiting for me if my parents got a call.
    My Momma was Crazy and my Daddy just let her do it!

    My parents set expectations for my behavior. I don't think parents talk to their kids. I don't think they tell them how high they want them to go in life. Many parents think children just grow up to be responsible all by themselves. Some are actually scared of their own kids.

    You are spot on by blaming the parents. At my daughter’s school some of the parents complained about homework in elementary school ?...

    They said it was too young, but that really meant is they don’t want to take the time with their own child to teach them.

    Exactly! Stop buying Black kids Jordan, Nike, Xbox, iphones and that materialistic cr@p.

  • KcoolMuziq

    I had a close friend that was a teacher. It's problem after problem after problem. She's trying to sue a school now. Plus had similar incidents in the past. with other schools. It baffles me why she continues to go back to teaching. I would NEVER want to be a teacher. Now our friendship is nonexistent after speaking my mind to her about it.

    But BAYBEY!! These bad azz kidz know which teachers to fool with...

  • FukkFolks2018

    I don't all the way agree with that. Bc I do all 3. She is a straight A student. Has good manners. Pretty decently traveled (within my means)...and still is getting her upgraded iPhone and her J's. Its what she wants, and I dont see why not

    Smh she has like two pages one says mentally f?!ked. I’m like ?smh.

  • tia

    Along with this lady, they're countless other "seasoned" veteran teachers. Many of them can go into any environment and teach too.
    However, we are dealing with a new breed of student. Back in the day it was probably some nuts, but it was few and far between. This day in time, these students don't fear authority. The kids are hateful, demons and simply not nice people. They are getting worse and more disrespectful as the years go by. From the household technicians to the administrators, continued prayers for these people.

  • xenaD

    O wow... that student is violent as hell & needs therapy. && has zero respect man... parents parents parents pay attention to your children ?????

    Thank you, sis. I'm encouraged.

  • cristalle1

    It is getting worse and worse for teachers and it is sad because so many of them are trying to do their best and make a difference. Imagine waking up every day and facing a classroom with the thought in the back of your head that a student might assault or even worse kill you? I understand her not wanting to return, she has her physical and mental health to worry about. It's a shame.

  • Shamwow

    ?? This!!!! I wish this world made choices to actually heal. The mental health field is a hot mess. I remember being on hold for hours or calling companies to accept patients. All of mental health work in institutions are Sooo tedious and complicated . Imagine if one person made a good decision and stuck with it, treatment will change for the better. Smh too much like right.?

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Exactly.
    Most people only want to treat the symptom but not the root cause.

  • KcoolMuziq

    Also it's more & more teachers that are there for "other" reasons besides teaching.

    Idk. The teacher referenced a girl. From the looks of things I would say a girl that wants to be a boy.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    But you're Parenting! You're not just focused on one area of her life...status. You've got a straight A student with manners!
    Now if your baby wasn't kicking it to her full potential or had no respect for hard work and discipline, then I'd be pulling you to the side.

    There's nothing wrong with rewarding your child, yet we have to instill the morals and values first. The reward is based on the output they give us back. Many Black parents want their kids to have the latest and greatest without regard to what effect it's having on the development of their children.

  • FukkFolks2018

    A lot of people frown down on me gifting and encouraging her with material items. Ive even had someone say you are getting her a new XYZ does she even have a college fund? Which was kinda outta line. I obviously got this over here.

    So yeah. I see your POV as well.

  • Faithz

    Yes beat that as, and Mopped the floor with

    Well I really hope they have punished that student to the fullest!!... The teacher was just coming back from medical leave from being treated for cancer and seems like a very sweet lady... So why tf that student did that to her is the damn question?... Every time I see the video I get more and more pissed!... And I'm even more upset that we can't even find out what happened to the student... I hope charges were filed against her... I hope she got kicked out of school and I hope her parents dealt with her severely!!!

    Wait. The student is 17! She should be arrested. I'm sorry but she should be prosecuted. This black teacher matters just as much as a white teacher. And if that 17 year old punched a white teacher in the face she'd be in jail. I didn't realize she is 17, that's too old to punch a teacher in the face and not know better.

    Exactly...they go after the vunerable ones....This teacher is suffering with cancer and the other male teacher was 64 years of age.

    send her to jail like anyone else who violated someone. Yet if the teacher would have whipped her ass the teacher would be in jail...if that student would have hit a random person on the street she might be dead.

    She prolly trying to put fear in the rest of them chicks so she can moelest them

  • SunRiseBlossom

    RIGHT! Lol

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Exactly.

  • Ms Thang

    These kids don’t fear anything these days. It’s no way in hell I could’ve gone home after punching a teacher.

  • Ms Thang

    Her parents are probably like my cousin. She would’ve been right up to that school clowning because her daughter got expelled. A student was not allowed to perform with the band last week and him and his PARENTS went and jumped some of the students.

  • Carrington

    Don't we all have at LEAST one hoodrat parent in our family who will fight the ADMINISTRATORS because their kid is bad as f*ck?

  • Carrington

    This couldn't have been one of my aunties, or my mama... my ghetto relatives would've given this b*tch an ANNUAL a$$ Whoopin' on the anniversary of this day.

  • Hunni24

    Not I'm bline Donna Goodeau! Maybe they are pen pals.

  • Shamwow

    ??

  • Karen Brady

    1. That's a girl? 2. That teacher actually followed her out the door still trying to speak to her civilly.. wow.. kudos to her. Couldn't have been me. 3. That girl? will do that to any one of us in the street.

  • Karen Brady

    I. just. HOLLERED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I MUST share your comment with my fam when I see them next week. We are going to cackle like hens. This made my ENTIRE WEDNESDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • WhoYouTalkingAbout

    I really hate this this happened to her.. so sad.. these kids dont give a dayum about nothing these days.. no kinda respect for anyone/anything..

  • YouWontSayItButIWill

    She doesn't belong in the school system...sorry. As an authorative figure I am wondering why in the hell she is even running behind a belligerent dangerous student who just assaulted her. Just that alone means she needs to find another career. I am disturbed more behind the teacher running after the student that just punched her clean her in damn face. That's what's disturbing.

  • YouWontSayItButIWill

    Aint nothing "lady" about that butch bull dyking broad. You are right. SOMETHING should have been done. I would handled it just like that black male teacher California. That 64 year old teacher whipped that disrespectful student's azz....just like the student deserve. I would have sued the school system, the student, and took my money from my GoFundMe account....and traveled the world.

  • YouWontSayItButIWill

    Would have been waiting on her outside.....OnSight

  • trisha hunter

    Boy, I watched that video! That was so unnecessary. That big nappy headed wench didn't have to hit that lady. She was already disrespecting her with her mouth 40 going north! That teacher still remained calm and respectful. Now that's restraint! We all remember last week when that Male teacher gave that male student a right hook because he was disrespecting him. It went viral. The masses was saying it was ok for the teacher to hit the student because of the 'disrespect.' I didn't agree. There are rules of engagement put in place for students like this. It's not ok for a teacher to right hook a student(child). I know it's difficult to not flip a switch when they are out of order. But this teacher proves that you can be the better person and walk away. Just watching this video made me want to slap the piss outta that grown lookin student! I hope they punish this student to the max. I'm so sorry this teacher went through this and that she has Cancer. I pray that God heals her and that she lives a long life away from the foolery! She obviously don't have time for it!!!

  • itsjismemelly

    this just hurt my soul, then they want to fire or prosecute teachers that hit back. this woman was coming back from chemo and had to deal with this. somebody needs to beat the natural born BRAKES off this little disrespectful chick

  • GrapeCrush

    Are you kidding me?? I can’t...?????

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    I know that's right

  • speakinmymind

    I keep hoping your "ain't sh*t" button will break...but it still hasn't!????????

  • GrapeCrush

    No ma’am. Couldn’t have been my mama/aunt/sister etc...y’all already know the rest ??????

  • Peppermint Patty

    Well damn....tell us how you really feel OG

  • Capricornlady

    WE! would NEVER punch a teacher! WE were raised different. Im from the era where you could get it from any auntie, neighbor, teacher... whoever! And get home and get it again for acting a plum fool to embarrass your parents.

  • Harley

    Naw I woulda have knocked the fire outta shim

  • AListDiva29

    That was a female that hit her? These parents gotta do better! None of these young kids have respect for no one anymore, SMDH!

  • Goldielocs

    I thought that was a boy that hit her!

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    My family and I were sitting around a fire Friday night discussing this and other similar stories. I hadn't seen the video until just now. That hurt my heart to know her story and then see that kid disrespect and hit her teacher like that, like it was nothing.

  • Li-Wright

    I'm a substitute, and I refuse to sub in the High schools....and I'm not alone. Once the child gets to the 5th grade and higher, they know more than you and they got attitude.

    That teacher should get the hell out of the PS. Go to the Charters or the private schools.

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    Oh I console and counsel older and young black women I know how all this stuff goes

  • J2PC

    Most kids in nice suburbia HS are better behaved. Just avoid certain schools & you'll have a better sub experience.

  • J2PC

    Unhappy bullies in school. She'll get hers.

  • Nina Ross

    She should collect workman’ Comp until retirement... where’s her go fundme???

  • J2PC

    A lot of them were oopsie or unwanted babies being hustled to either hook a man or get welfare to survive. Many of those kids from that might be alive but they are misguided, lost or spiritually dead inside.

    That experience creates human being to that are filled with hatred and self-esteem issues from being dragged up in life instead of loved & properly raised up.

  • gail jones

    They ain't even being raised, just getting fed and having a place to crash.

  • B.Loveitt

    I did a little subbing while working on my masters. The 7th grade girls were going to beat me up because the boys liked me too much. SMFH

  • hi-liter

    Lil dyken as. These kids know who to fvck with. Pretty sure her dusty as knew that lady had had cancer treatment. You reap what you sow lil bih.

  • Chocolate

    If someone has a link for a go fund me for this sweet teacher, can u please reply with the link?
    Her calm response to being assaulted showed so much compassion even tho that turd of a person did not deserve it!
    Can u imagine returning from the hell that is cancer treatment to being punched in the face for no reason? And on her bday, good God!

  • Jussjess25

    Of sure is! I will never act as if it doesn't exist ?

  • the guest

    AMEN!

  • Mister Fantastic

    Prosecute the shim, sue the school, and collect comp for your workplace injury. Lawyer up!

  • Malcom Flex

    Black parents nobody is gonna be left to teach your kids in these public schools. Yall better be getting those coins for private school or home school!

  • Li-Wright

    I'm in the city, residency & transportation prevents me from subbing in the suburbs.

  • J2PC

    Try those nice private or reputable charter schools where competing academically for college is important. You'll find a behavior to match. Most of the time. -just a thought.

  • selectivewords

    I say close all the schools and let parents teach their own bad kids!
    (i know it's not possible)

    How dare you birth them and they spend more hours at school, with someone else than yourself.

    (FYI.... I DON'T HAVE KIDS)

  • Dora LaBelle

    If I ran behind her it would be to clock her!
