Today was a normal day at work. During one of our Restroom and Water Breaks one of my students come in and tells me that another boy from another class is bothering him in the bathroom.
"Do you know who the boy is?" I ask.
"No" came the reply.
"Can you find him and bring him here?"
Moments later, in comes my student with the culprit.
"Are you supposed to be playing around in the bathroom?" I ask of him?
No answer... so I ask the question again....still no answer.
Ooookay......I look at the child and think to myself "He is of Hispanic heritage, maybe he does not understand English very well....".
To solve this dilema, I call yet another student over and ask him to translate the question I had posed.
This third little guy looks at me, then looks at the other child and begins to translate...
BATHROOM" he yells -- all the while speaking very slowly.....
*SIGH* "What are you doing???" I ask
"Translating for you....."
I just stare at the two of them.....and they just stare at me.......and then we all just quietly go back to our desks.....
