It Just Keeps Getting Numb Nuttier!

Yesterday a 2nd grade student from everyone's favorite CTT class threatened to break the neck of another 2nd grade student in another class. The teacher of the CTT class immediately notified Assistant Principal, and 2009 nominee for administrator of the year, the one, the only, Numb Nuts. This happened just before 1 PM. She asked Numb Nuts to take the student and was looking forward to the chancellor's discipline code being enforced. Yes, this is a 2nd grader, but it still must be taken seriously.

At approximately 2 15 PM the other teacher in this CTT class noticed Numb Nuts sitting at the computer in the office. In a very matter of fact tone of voice Numb Nuts was asked if had seen to the young man and what kind of resolution had come about. Part of the collaborative attitude we teachers have at my school. Numb Nuts basically had no time, nor an answer to give to this teacher. However, Numb Nuts did find the time to berate the teacher for being tardy with some paperwork. Numb Nuts has his priorities straight. I mean over an hour passed and this was not looked into at all?

Now let's play devil's advocate for a moment. Should a threat such as the one made be taken seriously, especially if it is by a 2nd grader? I think any threat like this should be, and more importantly why the anger at such a young age. Where does this child here something like this? What is the students background. Numb Nuts does not know, nor does he care. I know this child well. There is a lot of anger within him, but a lot of good that is desperate to get out. This boy is smart as a lick, and has a lot of issues that need to be addressed. Unfortunately, he is in the wrong school to have these issues addressed.
