That Itchy Feeling

| 2 Comments

In the midst of an otherwise good week—including a fascinating-sounding game of robot basketball—Ms. Frizzle finds her teaching style compromised by an appearance of head lice in her school:

Meanwhile my whole seventh period class had to be checked for lice (and there was at least one positive) and it’s been all I can do to stop feeling paranoidly itchy since then. Yuck. Yuck yuck yuck YUCK. I’ve never been the kind of teacher who is totally “hands-off” - I’ll give a kid a hug or a pat on the shoulder or whatever, despite the ubiquitous warnings about false accusations, etc. But man, this lice business might be the thing that finally keeps me from hugging kids!

This was a common problem at the school where I used to teach. I banked time to do head checks--typically when the kids were doing independent work. It is one of those instances in which teachers have to expand their job descriptions!
