Too Honest

As I have mentioned several times before I teach 7th and 8th grade Special Education. Usually, my students are pretty well behaved and don't get into much trouble. However, one afternoon I gave them free time on the computers. There are only 6 computers and 10 students, so some had to share. They usually go to the Disney Channel website or funbrain.com. Both sites are very appropriate and educational. Well, little did I know one student decided to go to Google images....YIKES! Although most inappropriate sites are blocked, the thumbnail pictures still show up on google images. This student, I will call him J, has always loved girls, and yes, I do keep a close eye on him. He decided to use Google images to look up porn, in my classroom, while I was actively monitoring them!!!
Of course I took him off the computer immediately and sent him to the office. I try not to write my kids up, but i didn't want the district to do some kind of search and find out one of my students attempted too look up porn and I did nothing about it. So, he goes to the office and the assistant principal decides this needs to be a parent conference. Mom gets there and the student tells her and the ap that he was trying to look up the word "puse" (for those of you not familiar with special education students he was attempting to spell pu$$y). He was very honest and I was floored! How can you say you were trying to look that up in front of your own mother?!?! Now he is only allowed on the computer for the specific program needed for my class and doesn't have internet access...which you think would be OK, right????.....
Nope! Not for J! I passed out a set of educational magazines for the class so we could read a play that was in it. My students love to read plays! They usually put someone famous on the cover and do a small story about them, to get the kiddos interested in reading. This cover had Rhianna on the front. Great for middle school students, right? Great for every kid except J....who was licking the magazine because he wanted to "kiss" Rhianna. WHAT??? He just wanted to kiss her, he said. I explained to him it was not appropriate and actually disgusting because other students would be using the same magazine.
More exciting stories from my classroom to come......

That story makes me miss my time in the classroom. It is amazing how they can be so frustrating and yet entertaining at the same time.
