I do similar things...and yes...I agree the light flashing doesn't calm the
kids on the high school level.
What is a bell-hop bell?
I don't know why but when I can't get their attention, I say "Yo" and it
cracks the kids up and I get their attention. I don't use it a lot but I
think that they are so shocked that this middle age woman is saying yo E
