This has been on the news here for a couple days (since it happened) since Philla is so close to us. I would be pretty ticked at the teacher for letting this kid poke so many kids. I mean come on, if you were a teacher and one of the kids brought a needle in for show and tell and started poking kids wouldn't you stop her after the first kid she poked? Where was the teacher in all this? The kid obviously didn't know any better but the teacher should have.
At my kids school the children leave the bus and go into the building and into the cafeteria to await the first bell and/or eat breakfast. Normally there are 2 teachers or someone there to help the children get breakfast or assist in other things. It's not a classroom environment, it gets a bit loud like lunchtime. I can totally see this sort of thing going on because I got a call when someone took my daughters glasses off her face (she's only 5) and hid them on her. The staff never saw who did it, and it was up to my 5 year old to point them out. When my daughter heads off to school in the morning, I KNOW what's in her bag. I make sure everything she needs is in there. When she comes home I check her bag- the teachers send home notes on a regular basis with her about upcomming events and whatnot. So I ALWAYS know whats in there. And I will most likely be doing that until she's a teenager...after that I HOPE she knows better. If my kid did something like that I would totally feel at fault...after all she's MY responsibility.
