There have recently been some incidents regarding a certain person I work with who hasn't been treating a certain student nicely at all. The HUGE problem is that this certain student is MR. After hearing and witnessing SEVERAL incidents, I have been on the lookout for this student and have been watching out for his/her back. (I'm not being specific to keep the privacy of those involved.)
On Thursday, I had recess duty. The student was on the fence, and I asked him/her why. He/she replied, "I got out of line." I asked how much time he/she was supposed to spend on the fence. He/she told me, "The whole thing." To which I replied:
"Go and play. You do not owe any time today. If your teacher asks, you may tell him/her that I told you it was OK."
He/she got off the fence with the biggest smile I've ever seen and played to his/her heart's content.
I was waiting for the person I work with to come and talk to me about it, but that person never mentioned a thing to me.
A student stepping out of line in the hallway does not warrant missing an entire recess on a beautiful sunny day, especially when a student has MR. Give me a freaking break.
