Some teachers are the grown ups. I had a few adult teachers in high school... 30 yrs ago.
Ha, in 1994 my boy walked out of kindergarten and was on his way home when the cops picked him up. Some little old lady saw him walking and thought he was too young to be in town alone. They took him downtown and called his mom at work to come get him. Serious business then but we laugh at it now.
The cop said he was a perfect little gentleman.
But the teacher quit after that year. She just couldn't handle a room full of 5 & 6 yr olds.
Funny thing is, she saw my boy a year or two later in the store with his mom.... the former teacher started shaking and had to leave. All because of a 6 yr old.
That poor girl didn't belong in a classroom to start with
