Get your work done, or I'll come over there and kick you sorry little ***, among other things. The student was only in grade 7, and he seemed on the brink of tears. I got upset just listening to it. I sure know that if a teacher had talked to me in that way, that I would have been depressed, especially if it happened time after time. I am wondering what I should do about this? I will definately tell a school counsillor, but should I tell the police if nothing is done. I know that this kid was really upset, but that it oviously was the norm because he held it in.
