Today, I was reading my students' Halloween stories I made them write for my creative writing class in high school. One of my students wrote about attacking me. She got my street address perfect and everything. FML

If the story was good, it should get an "A."

However, the kid also needs to be reported for disciplinary action. Sorry, but writing a story about attacking the teacher is bad news and can't be ignored. The kid COULD have written a story about fictional characters. Making it the real teacher with the real address may be cute to the kids, but in this day and age just isn't funny, and should be dealt with.

Correct address implies she has been spying/stalking and may actually do something awful.

Then again it also depends on the teacher. There are some teachers whose addresses everyone knows.... it's some unexplainable student thing.

if a girl writes a story about attacking her teacher, complete with street address, then she is STUPID enough to get in trouble for it. zero tolerance is usually taken too far. So how MORONIC can you be to write such a creepy story in times when 1st graders get expelled for bringing butter knives to school? the girl is probably one of those whiny attention seeking "woe is me" high schoolers who thinks everyone is out to get her. I'm sorry but you should know better than to write a story about attacking a teacher and include the address she lives at.

dan131m: "you will destroy all her dreams!!" HAH! anyone with half a brain would know not to write a paper like that, this girls probably too dumb to get into college. I graduated high school 2 years ago, and know that the crazy attention-desperate girls like her have a future that involves fast food, drugs or early pregnancy.

This reminds me of that King of the Hill episode where Connie exclaimed, melodramatically, something along the lines of "if [something happens/doesn't happen], I'll kill myself!" and everyone freaked the fuck out about it. She wasn't crazy, suicidal, or seeking attention, she was just being a typical teen.

for a writing teacher, I think you could have written this a little more clearly.

but yeah it is a bit creepy, but it's not hard to find addresses, honey. FOIA sure helps.

They DID have the correct usage of possessive apostrophes.

The possessive form of one student is student's.
The possessive form of plural students is students'.

Don't dis an English teacher unless you know what you're talking about. :)

1. I know how possessive apostrophes work.
2. I do know what I'm talking about.
3. The OP edited their post to add in the missing possessive apostrophe.

Don't "dis" posters until you know the full story.

zero tolerance is used too much for mild cases to satisfy a faculty member's power trip but a story like that is pretty serious. bad things happen when that crap is just ignored.

STFU! If you're not a teacher than you couldn't possibly understand. No matter what you do, it's impossible to please 100% of your students. At least 10% of those little bitches will always hate you. Especially if your a woman.

Think back to your favorite high school teacher....the coolest one. Someone hated him/her. If you didn't like any of your high school teachers...guess what? You're one of those little bitches in the 10%.
