It is always inspirational to read heartfelt apologies written by students. Here’s an example of how one student wiped the slate clean:
“Dear Mr. Gym,
I am sorry that I said to go suck one. I promise that I will not say it again.
Note: “Go suck one” represents approximately 7.6% of the threats of physical harm that were verbalized toward Mr. Gym. But who’s counting?
Sometimes, it is difficult to respond to a student remark. Case in point:
A sweet-looking six-year-old girl approaches my colleague, who is a lovely young woman in her twenties.
“My brother told me that you are a serial killer.”
