I have been teaching 6th grade for about 5 years.
Before I was a 6th grade instructor, I worked in a high school! I truly prefer Middle School seasoned children, since the students at the high school rarely want to learn. It’s much more simple to teach adolescents in middle school. I teach calculus and math to the students. I have five classes during the day and one free period. During my free time, I grade papers and work in the classroom. At times, I will go to the instructors lounge instead of my classroom, however the instructors lounge has a ductless air conditioner appliance and it works better than the AC in the classroom. I was in the instructors lounge not long ago grading papers when I abruptly had to use the restroom. The adolescents bathroom is right across the hall from the instructors lounge, so I decided to use the students bathroom instead of walking across the building to the instructors’ lavatory! As soon as I made my way into the adolescents bathroom, there was a disgusting stink. I knew instantaneously that the stink was marijuana. I looked in all of the stalls and no one happened to be in the bathroom. I didn’t see any signs of marijuana in the garbage can but clearly someone had just been smoking some cannabis in there. I went to the instructors that have students in the exact same hallway. I was able to get a list of the students who had used the bathroom that period and after that I took that list to the principal. Honestly, nobody should be smoking marijuana in the adolescents 6th grade bathroom.
